A former member of the Pussycat Dolls is making the bombshell claim that the all-girl group was a “prostitution ring.”
Singer Kaya Jones says she was prompted to come forward after because dozens of actresses spoke out about disgraced former movie mogul Harvey Weinstein.
“My truth. I wasn't in a girl group. I was in a prostitution ring,” she tweeted Friday.

A storm of tweets followed, claiming the Pussycat Dolls faced their own sexual abuse from music industry executives.
“To be apart (sic) of the team you must be a team player. Meaning sleep with whoever they say,” she said.
She doubled down on her accusations in a phone interview with the controversial website Infowars.
“You're a prostitute," she said. "You're doing things for money. You're doing things for your career. And it's being pushed on you or you're jumping to it. That's what this is.”
She claimed she was made to sleep with executives, managers, agents and other artists on the label.
She added: “Sometimes they just continue to pass the girl, so she's just passed around.”
Jones left the Pussycat Dolls in 2005 just before they rocketed to the top of the music charts with 54 million records sold worldwide.
Lead singer Nicole Scherzinger went on to become one of the biggest names from the group.
Jones went on to a solo music career and is a contributor to the Fox News Channel.
