‘I hate drama’: Pussycat Doll Kimberley Wyatt on bandmate’s lawsuit ahead of reunion tour


Pussycat Dolls star Kimberley Wyatt has said that she hopes the "drama" currently surrounding the band's reunion tour gets resolved, so that she can "go and live the dream" on stage.

The pop group's founder Robin Antin is suing lead singer Nicole Scherzinger over claims she wanted "complete creative control" on the reunion tour.

Scherzinger is refusing to be part of the reunion shows as it stands, over the pair's disagreements.

Bandmate Wyatt told Sky News it was a "tricky situation" but that the group wants to get back on stage.

"I hate that this situation is happening, but I'm just going to stay optimistic," she said.


"Nobody's told me anything but the fact that we are going to be on tour September of next year, so I'm going to stay optimistic about that and sort of lay my heart into it because I've done everything I can to get this band back together.

"It has very much to do with the girls, and just figuring out that ultimately when we get on stage, I want everybody to feel good.

"I want them to want to be there, and I want to live the dream and and nothing else matters. Like I hate drama. I think it's so unnecessary, but maybe necessary for others, and I hope they can get the drama out the way so we could go and live the dream."

Wyatt was also discussing her latest mission to get young people dancing with the help of Busy Bees, in an effort to help with confidence and making friends.

She said: "There's a lot of studies that go to show that using your imagination is what can really help spark sort of allowing yourself to get rid of any inhibitions and insecurities and go for it.

"I was a very shy, insecure kid, I found it very difficult to make friends and dance, [and it] was that support that… made me feel confident that I could… be confident, just to own my space and to be just a normal kid.

"I think that more than ever, we know that kids need more focus on well-being, and dance really does bring bring those sorts of tools and attributes to the classroom. So it's nice that it's happening."
