Danity Kane

The troubled group officially disbanded for the final time a year ago – but Aubrey O'Day and Shannon Bex are still talking all things Danity Kane.

And specifically they have a lot to say about how multi-millionaire rapper and producer Sean Combs allegedly fleeced them out of their hard-earned cash.

Plugging their new musical venture, Dumblonde, the duo were speaking in the US on The Breakfast Club, a morning radio show. 

During the course of the interview, they were asked why – despite the band's success – they never made any money out of DK.

"We were signed to Diddy," Ms Bex told the host without missing a beat.

Ms O'Day then added: "We have two platinum albums, let alone grossed over a million dollars on Christina Aguilera's Back to Basics tour.

"We came off the tour $15,000 in debt and grossed millions."

Then Shannon threw in the cutting: "Thanks, Diddy."

A year ago, a recording session with the women resulted in a major, headline-grabbing catfight.

"Sadness does not even remotely begin to describe what I feel right now,' Aubrey, who was supposedly punched in the head by fellow DK-member Dawn Richard, told TMZ at the time.

Shannon also said in a statement that she felt "used and manipulated".

According to sources, Dawn was enraged after finding out that her bandmates had been meeting behind her back. 

With Aundrea Fimbres and D Woods also on board, the original Danity Kane lineup amounted to five.

They were put together in 2005 by Diddy via MTV's Making The Band. He kicked out Ms O'Day and Ms Woods in 2008, and months later the rest of the group went their separate ways.

With the exception of D, the women did get back together two years ago, but Aundrea soon decided to "focus on family," leaving just Dawn, Aubrey, and Shannon. 

Now the latter two have established Dumblonde – and they release their debut album next week.

Two months ago she was spotted at a West Hollywood eatery with her life coach… and now Amanda Bynes has emerged once again.

And while back in May she certainly appeared noticeably happier and healthier – yesterday, the 29-year-old actress positively shone at an LA fashion event.

Wearing a tight white lace dress, she completed her outfit with leather stilettos and a small leather shoulder bag. She also had on oversized sunglasses and her trademark long, blonde wig.

Ms Bynes was attending the launch party for Project Runway star's Michael Costello's capsule range in Los Angeles – seemingly the first bash she’s been a guest at since her much-publicised breakdown and mental-health issues.

Also attending the same soiree were former Danity Kane members Shannon Bex and Abrey O'Day, as well as singer Nicole Scherzinger.

Earlier this year, a spokesperson for the star said: "Amanda is doing great. She appreciates all of the love and support she receives from family, friends and fans."

Legal representatives for her parents, Lynn and Rick, also said at the same time: "She is doing great, working on her fashion design and staying focused on living a balanced and healthy life."

It has been furthermore reported that Ms Bynes has made sufficient health improvements to move out of her parents’ home and into her own apartment.

It is believed that Amanda’s relationship with her mum and dad, which at times has been hugely strained, has also improved significantly since late last year.

As recently as last October, the star was being treated in a psychiatric facility.

In 2012, she was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol, and two years ago she was involuntarily hospitalised because of her erratic behaviour.

Two sets of hit and run charges against her were dismissed when she made financial settlements out of court.

She has also been caught shoplifting and in a series of worrying tweets, she made several incredible accusations – including that she had been sexually abused by her father.

It was a comment she later retracted, saying that a "microchip made her say it".

The former Nickelodeon star remains under the temporary conservatorship of her parents.
