Ex-Pussycat Doll Claims She Was Sexually Assaulted by Music Exec in the Back of a Limo
Kaya Jones left the famed all-girl group just before they hit it big.
A day after Kaya Jones likened being a member of the Pussycat Dolls to a prostitution ring, she is back with another explosive claim involving one of music’s most successful all-girl groups.
She clarified her "prostitution" comments to Inside Edition Tuesday, saying that she wasn't paid to have sex, adding, "If you are accepting an opportunity sleeping with your boss or bosses, or being propositioned it will go further if you do this. What is the difference between a job opportunity and cash? I don’t really see a difference."
The former Pussycat Doll also says she was sexually assaulted in the back of a limo by a music executive.
"I was stunned, I didn't know what to do," she said. "He immediately jumped on top of me and started kissing me. I said, 'Stop, what are you doing?' He was like, 'This is not okay?' I said, 'No, this is not okay, stop. You need to stop.'"
The founder of the Pussycat Dolls, Robin Antin, told TheBlast.com that Jones' "prostitution" claims are "disgusting, ridiculous lies" and that Jones is "clearly looking for her 15 minutes [of fame]."
"To me, this is not about my 15 minutes, this is about telling the truth," Jones said, "The fact that you are going to attack the victim and not say I am sorry or have a stance and try to discredit me is actually not okay."
Jones says she was so fed up that she left the group in 2005 before they hit it big.
"I am just trying to say for young women coming up in this business, for women that are in this business that have been attacked or abused, it is not right," Jones said. "They are not alone."
