Pussycat Dolls suing Daily Mail over claims they were a 'Prostitution Ring’

Pussycat Dolls suing Daily Mail over claims they were a 'Prostitution Ring’
The Pussycat Dolls had been around for eight years when they signed a record deal, and musical fame followed. They had a revolving lineup, which ranged from the very famous Nicole Sherzinger, to the now infamous Kaya Jones.
Why is she infamous? Because she made some claims about the group, namely that “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 $.”
Now the Dolls are suing the Daily Mail for printing this story and relying on Jones’ testimony. They’re pretty damning of it: “This defamation action arises out of the intentional, reckless and malicious publication by the Daily Mail Corporation… of false and defamatory statements made by a disgruntled, unreliable and biased person looking for her fifteen minutes of fame, Kaya Jones, when the Defendants knew through their direct prior dealings with Plaintiffs, or should have known, with even the most basic check, that Ms. Jones was unreliable and her story obviously false.”
“Instead, for pure sensationalism, and advertising money, and to grab salacious headlines to sell their product, and without caring what it meant for Plaintiffs, their business, or their reputation, the Defendants published and commented on these defamatory statements with a reckless disregard for the truth.”
“The extent of Ms. Jones’ credits in The Pussycat Dolls is when she auditioned, and served as a backup vocalist on the song ‘Sway’ released in 2004 and the song ‘We Went as Far as We Felt Like Going’ also released in 2004. Had the Daily Mail performed any investigation into this matter, such as reviewing album credits available on the Internet, they would have also seen this information.”
That’s a pretty big fuck you to the Mail.
