from Vigilant Citizen:
Singer Kaya Jones, an ex-member of The Pussycat Dolls, claims that members were ‘passed around’ by music industry executives.
Kaya Jones was discovered by R Kelly when she was 13 years old and was signed with Capitol Records by age 16. In 2003, she auditioned and was selected to become part of the girl group The Pussycat Dolls. She then moved to Interscope records and went under the tutelage of music producer Jimmy Iovine.
Only two years later, Jones left the group while it was still recording its debut album claiming that “that it was no longer fun to be in the band”. In an interview with Yahoo! Singapore, Jones said:
“When everyone is not on the same page it affects the group so that I think was the worst part and I decided to leave. It was not because I wanted to be solo and I didn’t want to be in a group anymore, I left because it stopped being enjoyable, it stopped being fun.”

Today, 12 years after quitting the group, Kaya launched a series of explosive tweets explaining why it was “no longer fun” to be a Pussycat Doll. Not only it was “no longer fun”, it was a nightmare.
On October 12th, Jones began posting tweets about the “Hollywood elite”, probably in response to the Harvey Weinstein debacle.
She then made bombshell declarations about The Pussycat Dolls, claiming that it was, first and foremost, a “prostitution ring”. She even added that she kept a journal and a timeline of events.
