Ashley Roberts also announces departure
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.
