Breaking News! Another Sugababe leaves
The Sugababes saga rolls on with yet another member of the band leaving. Tonight on her Twitter feed, Keisha Buchanan, the sole remaining original member of the band has announced that she is no longer a part of the girl group.
In a post made less than 30 minutes ago, Buchanan said "Dear Friends I'm sad to say that I am no longer apart of the Sugababes." The singer rubbished media reports of a fallout between herself and recent Sugababes signing, Amelle Berrabah saying "Sometimes a break down in communication and lack of trust can result in many different things... I would also like to point out that I have always supported the girls and they have also supported me."
Earlier this week, some areas of the press claimed that Berabbah had left the band to be replaced by last year's Eurovision contender, Jade Ewen, but these claims were later proven to be inaccurate. However, it seems that following these latest events, reports of unrest in the band weren't unfounded. The future of the group is now in question with the remaining members, Berabbah and Heidi Range being later signings. Previous members of the band, Mutya Buena and Siobhan Donaghy went on to attempt solo careers but neither has had the same level of success they experienced as part of the band.
Update - earlier reports that Jade Ewen was to be joining the band appear to have been correct with a statement on the Sugababes website confirming this. The site also mentions that Keisha is to launch a solo career and will be staying with Island Records.
Ewen would appear to be a good fit for the band going on her single, released today!
