Former Pussycat Dolls memberÂ Carmit Bachar told reporters that X-Factor judge Nicole Scherzinger‘s jealousy of fellow member Ashley Roberts contributed to the group’s split.
“Nicole was jealous of Ashley. She felt threatened by her – like people would prefer her because of the way she looked,” Bachar toldÂ The Sun.Â ”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.Â 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,” she continued.
“After the Dolls fell apart, Ashley was in tears,” Bachar said. “It was a tough time for everyone in the band. But with Ashley being the way she is, it was particularly hard on her.”
“I think Nicole got it into her head that she was the real star and would be better off on her own.Â She started traveling in her own tour bus and the divide between her and the rest of us just got bigger. Nicole chose to isolate and alienate herself. There was constant bickering. Ashley was always the sensitive one back then.”
“Nicole basically wanted to be front and center all the time. We were expected to work our arses off to boost Nicole and her own career. The situation became unbearable,” she said.
