Former Pussycat Dolls group member Kaya Jones criticized the all-girl band in a series of tweets on Friday, going as so far to describe the pop band as a "prostitution ring."
Jones, 33, was part of the five-member group, which was known for its burlesque vibe.
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 $— KAYA (@KayaJones) October 13, 2017

I want the den mother from hell to confess why another 1 of her girl group girls committed suicide?Tell the public how you mentally broke us— KAYA (@KayaJones) October 13, 2017
To be apart of the team you must be a team player.Meaning sleep with whoever they say.If you dont they have nothing on you to leverage— KAYA (@KayaJones) October 13, 2017
Yes I said leverage. Meaning after they turn you out or get you hooked on drugs they use it against you.Correct.Victimizing the victim again— KAYA (@KayaJones) October 13, 2017
That’s why I have so much respect for our military. I’ve been through war. But my scars you can’t see. At least real war is honest— KAYA (@KayaJones) October 13, 2017
Why don’t we report it? Because we are all abused! I personally have been warned if I tell I will ... you know end up dead or no more career— KAYA (@KayaJones) October 13, 2017
Well ...killing you or killing your soul what’s the difference. You do it for them.A teenagers go to jail for less. Will Hollywood?— KAYA (@KayaJones) October 13, 2017
Though she remained unnamed, Jones was likely referring to the group's founder, Robin Antin, who vehemently denied the allegations, saying that the former member "was clearly looking for her 15 minutes."
In an interview with The Blast, Antin described the allegations as "disgusting, ridiculous lies."
Antin said she was also surprised to learn that Jones was referring to herself as a former member of The Pussycat Dolls because, she says, Jones was on "trial" and never an official member of the group.
Jones' spiral of tweets surfaced as controversy continues to surround Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, who has been accused of sexually assaulting dozens of women throughout his career.
