Pussycat Dolls Were Actually a ‘Prostitution Ring,’ Former Member Kaya Jones Says

”We as Pussycat Dolls were paid $500 a week. While we were being abused & used. Fact!“ former band member says

Add Kaya Jones to the growing list of women who are raising their voices against abuse of women in the entertainment industry.

Jones, a former member of the Pussycat Dolls, let loose with explosive allegations over the weekend, saying that the girl group was actually a “prostitution ring.”

“My truth.I wasn’t in a girl group. I was in a prostitution ring.Oh & we happened to sing & be famous. While everyone who owned us made the $,” Jones, who left the group in 2005, tweeted Friday.

“How bad was it?people ask-bad enough that I walked away from my dreams,bandmates&a 13 million dollar record deal.We knew we were going to#1,” the musician added.

Jones appeared to call out Pussycat Dolls boss Robin Antin out directly, writing, “Robin & the record label made all the money. We as Pussycat Dolls were paid $500 a week. While we were being abused & used. Fact!”

Jones encouraged her former colleagues to come forward, tweeting, “To the dolls that stayed&artists I’ve worked with who knew&know the truth speak up! When the truth is shown be on the right side of history.”

Jones’ tweets, which came in the wake of accusations leveled against film producer Harvey Weinstein by numerous women last week, were lauded for their bravery by many on social media. However, Pussycat Dolls founder Antin strongly denied the allegations, telling The Blast that they were “disgusting, ridiculous lies” told by someone who’s “clearly looking for her 15 minutes.”

Antin also told The Blast that Jones was never a permanent member of the group, but rather her stint with the group was a trial run.
