Kaya Jones Compares Time In Pussycat Dolls To Prostitution
Former Pussycat Dolls member Kaya Jones has described the group as a “prostitution ring.”
The Toronto-born singer, who quit the Pussycat Dolls in 2005 before their debut album was released, said in a series of tweets that she was consistently exploited by people in the music industry and forced to have sex with executives.
“My truth. I wasn’t in a girl group. I was in a prostitution ring,” Jones wrote. “Oh & we happened to sing & be famous. While everyone who owned us made the $.
Jones alleged that Pussycat Dolls founder Robin Antin and the record label “made all the money” while the group’s members were paid $500 U.S. a week. “We were being abused & used,” she tweeted.
“The worst part is we were all subjected to sexual advances & mental abuse.”
Jones alleged: “To be apart of the team you must be a team player. Meaning sleep with whoever they say. If you don’t they have nothing on you to leverage.”
Jones – a Christian conservative and supporter of U.S. president Donald Trump – said the situation was so bad, she walked away “from my dreams, bandmates and a 13 million dollar record deal.”
Antin has dismissed Jones’ claims as “disgusting, ridiculous lies” and told The Blast that Jones was never even an official member of the Pussycat Dolls.
