Ashley Roberts also announces departure

Kimberly Wyatt has left the Pussycat Dolls.

The Got To Dance judge admits she was unhappy in the band.

‘I have to say there were just too many variables that I couldn’t agree with and I had to follow my heart,’ Kimberly, 28, tells Loaded. ‘So I decided to kind of push on with my own life.

‘Money and fame can’t buy happiness. Ultimately, I think that happiness is the most important thing in life, and I think that once I started to get to know myself more and more, I was like, “You know, I don’t think that my happiness is within this group right now.”

‘I wish that it was different because I love what we do onstage. I love being a Doll, but as far as the variables off-stage are concerned – I just couldn’t do it anymore.’

Ashley Roberts, 28, has also resigned from the band to focus on her acting career. 

‘Yes, I have left the Pussycat Dolls,’ she wrote on her website.

‘I love you all sooo much!!! I am so grateful to have the love and support of all of you. It was an amazing ride, and I learned so much!’

The Pussycat Dolls – including Nicole Scherzinger – announced in September that they were ‘on a break’ to focus on their solo work.
