Dawn Richard stopped by New York’s The Breakfast Club on Tuesday and opened up about a slew of topics, including her fight with former bandmate, Aubrey O’Day.
“This is how I feel about it,” Dawn started off. “Any team, anything you play in, from football, basketball, everybody has a role. A quarterback cannot decide tomorrow to say I’m gonna be a wide receiver. He might be a really good runner, but at the end of the day, when it’s time to get this championship ring, everybody has to play a part. The problem with Danity Kane is everybody wanted to play everybody’s role.”
She added, “Everybody gets pushed to the limit. I have been very good about holding my ground. I had a role to play in this group, everybody did. When something is poisoning you go into the studio, and people are literally going behind your back and lying to you, and taking your vocals and doing things that are shady, that’s foul.”
Dawn explained that she was away from the group for a week because she had been sick, she found out her father had cancer and her grandmother had just passed away. According to the singer, when she came back, she was supposed to add in her vocals and ad-libs, but things sadly took a turn for the worse.
The singer revealed that she and the girls got into a verbal altercation after Dawn arrived to the studio only to find her bandmates recording her vocals … the group had previously told Dawn that the recording session was the following day. “I walked in on them doing it. I tried to confront them … I blacked out … I couldn’t believe it.”
She added, “It wasn’t even a big ball out fight, it was like I was angry. Then I stopped, realized what I did. She [Aubrey] called the police.”
As previously reported, a battery report was taken, but Aubrey did not press charges.
Dawn’s new album, Blackheart is available now on iTunes.
