Danity Kane at HAZE Nightclub

Sean Combs' failed music experiment, Danity Kane, has parted ways after a studio session ended with punches thrown.

The brawl between group members Dawn Richard, center, and Aubrey O’Day, right, left the studio floor littered with weave extensions and broken dreams.

According to gossip blog TMZ, Dawn "sucker punched" Aubrey in the back of her head.

In a note to her fans, Aubrey implied that Dawn may be mentally unstable and prone to unprovoked violence.

“Sadness does not even remotely begin to describe what I feel right now," Aubrey wrote.

During a recent group meeting, a business conversation took a turn for the worst when my group member punched me in the back of my head while I was speaking to another associate. To be clear, she was not physically engaged or threatened prior to her attack on me. This is the same information I provided to the police, and witnesses also corroborated this account of the incident. I cannot condone or excuse any form of physical violence, particularly at the hands of someone I considered family. Disagreements happen. But a war of words and ideas should never end in physical aggression.

t breaks my heart that this violence is followed by no sign of remorse. For the past year, I watched small lies turn into bigger lies. Those bigger lies turned into verbal abuse. Now the verbal abuse has deteriorated into a physical assault. I put what I knew was right second to what I knew I could handle for the sake of the big-picture success this incredibly talented group of women could have achieved together. It was my goal to prove that with enough understanding the issues behind the scenes could be resolved, and we could continue to create content for one of the most inspiring fan bases I have ever witnessed. I realize now that in order to achieve that reality all three girls would have to want that. And, unfortunately, only two of us put our solo ambitions and lives to a halt and consistently put the team first.

An ethical and moral line has been crossed. As someone who experienced abuse in the past, I promised to never grow up putting my hands on people or ever condoning such behavior in others. It is a promise near and dear to my heart. If you have experienced it before, you already know it is not something one should compromise. Over the past year of constant engagement, I tried tirelessly to sympathize with behavior I could not understand. But, I watched her behavior get darker and darker. And, I fear it will only get worse. This most recent occurrence is not just incredibly embarrassing for the members of Danity Kane. More importantly, it spits on the hard work of all those who have supported us along this journey. Sadness does not even remotely begin to describe what I feel right now. Ultimately, as a woman who has spent her entire career standing up for the underdog and right over wrong, I can no longer pretend that she is willing to do what it takes to protect the power of the Danity Kane name.

    • Nakeya_J or Keke thanks to Unshake

      How Dawn gonna wait till old girl turn her back to punch her!? That's a punk move. She gets no respect from me. Dawn was probably mad because she finally figured out, no one cares about her . No one.

    • Hair Lova

      Oh I used to like Damaged too. As far as I'm concerned that's their only song.

    • http://thegameonbetblog.tumblr.com/ Bird

      How interesting that she wrote all that but couldn't make room to say what happened before Dawn punched her in the head. Sounds to me like she thinks she can say what she wants and turn her back and that will be the end of it. It doesn't always work like that Aubrey. You might need to keep your mouth in check.
