Aubrey O'Day and Shannon Bex have moved on from their Danity Kane days but that isn't stopping the ladies from talking about the debt they racked up from starring in the group. The duo were two of the five members of Danity Kane, which was founded by Sean "Diddy" Combs in 2005 on MTV's hit series "Making the Band." Although the band was well received by audiences, they were unable to take off, which ultimately resulted in their demise. O'Day, 31, and Bex, 35, have since gone on to form a new group, called Dumblonde, but they haven't forgotten the debts owed to them.
During an appearance on Power 105.1's "The Breakfast Club," hosted by Charlemagne Tha God, DJ Envy and Angela Yee, the soulful songstresses took a walk down memory lane, recalling their Danity Kane days. As was reported by TMZ, Bex went into detail about why the band was unable to hit the big time. She told the popular morning show's hosts they never made any money as a group because they "were signed to Diddy," seemingly throwing shade at the music mogul. O'Day added that as a group they had two platinum albums and grossed a whopping $2 million just from opening for Christina Aguilera on her Back To Basics tour, yet somehow they found themselves $15,000 in debt.

This is not the first time Danity Kane's issues have been made public. As we previously reported, in 2009 -- just four years after creating the group -- Diddy, 45, fired four of the five members. Dawn Richard was the only one not given the ax. No specific reason was given for their firing. At the time, however, rumors had been circulating that members of the group believed Diddy was ripping them off.
Despite their rocky road to success the group attempted to reunite in 2013 -- sans Diddy and Wanita "D.Woods" Woodgette. According to TMZ, Aundrea Fimbres, Richard, 32, O'Day and Bex were seen out to lunch with a new manager. At the time it was not clear who owned the rights to the band's name, but it was believed they planned to move forward using it anyway. Fortunately, Diddy never went to battle with the band over it. The group released several singles, including "Rhythm of Love" and "Bye Baby," in 2014.
Diddy has yet to comment on O'Day and Bex's claims. Check out the full interview below:
