Nicole Scherzinger reportedly “felt threatened” by her former Pussycat Dolls bandmate Ashley Roberts.
The superstar pop singer’s previous girl band dissolved in 2010. Original group members Nicole, Ashley, Melody Thornton, Jessica Sutta, Kimberly Wyatt and Carmit Bachar then went on to pursue solo endeavours.
Apparently part of the reason that the Pussycat Dolls disbanded was Nicole’s emulousness.
Ashley was just too blonde.
“Nicole was jealous of Ashley. She felt threatened by her — like people would prefer her because of the way she looked,” ex Pussycat Doll Carmit told British newspaper The Sun.
“Ashley had that iconic American thing going on — blonde hair, blue eyes. It was the look Nicole seemed to want but could never have.
“No one could understand why Nicole was so jealous. She was an exotic beauty with a look that most girls would kill for.
“But she always had a thing about blonde girls. Ashley knew that Nicole was jealous of her and it made her feel uncomfortable. It was a hideous undertone in the group.”
