Dawn Richard Explains Why She Punched Aubrey O’Day In The Head, Apologizes To Fans

By: Mike Wass / August 8, 2014

The internet is still reeling from the (second) dissolution of Danity Kane due to a physical altercation between band members. Aubrey O’Day broke the news earlier today (August 8) in a lengthy Tumblr post in which she accused Dawn Richard of punching her in the head for no apparent reason. The trio’s other member Shannon Bex backed her story up.

However, Dawn’s explanation for the blow that finally put Danity Kane out of its misery is decidedly different. She told TMZ that Aubrey and Shannon were spreading “exaggerated lies and false accusations”. According to the “Meteors” singer, things came to a head when she discovered the duo recording songs in the studio without her. “Extremely sorry to the fans. You don’t deserve this,” the 31-year-old tweeted.

Could this be any more depressing? Physical violence is unacceptable but Dawn had a right to be mad if the other ladies were plotting against her. After all, she put a successful solo career on hold to rejoin the band, while Aubrey and Shannon were comparatively down on their luck. See the miffed diva’s tweets after the jump and stay tuned for more details.
