Breaking: Dawn Richard Sez She's 'Devasted' By Danity Split

We didn't want to believe the Danity Kane breakup rumors, but now we may not have a choice. In a new interview with MTV News, Dawn Richard confirmed reports that the band is heading in different directions, saying "as of right now," DK doesn't even exist. So what went wrong? Well for starters, only two of the five original members even bothered to show up for the second half of this season's Making the Band!

"Puff invited all the girls to come back on this season and they chose not to," Dawn told MTV News. "Only two of us [myself and Aundrea Fimbres] showed up. That's fine if that's the choice."

In other words, internet rumors that Shannon Bex wanted out of the band were true.

"I don't know why [Bex left]," sez Dawn. "I don't want to even try to answer it 'cause that's not fair to her. I haven't [spoken to her] but I heard she's doing well with her husband and she got a house. I love her, but I don't know."
