Nicole Scherzinger is being sued by Pussycat Dolls founder Robin Antin, according to reports.

The creator and choreographer of the girl band is alleging that the 43-year-old is demanding to have a much larger share in the group’s new venture, along with creative control.

Scherzinger, who is believed to currently have a share of 49%, has reportedly demanded her portion be increased to 75%.

Prior to the Covid pandemic, Scherzinger allegedly agreed to reunite with the other Dolls for a tour. However, the founder has claimed the star wants her new requests to be met, otherwise she’ll drop out.

In Antin’s lawsuit, she’s accused Scherzinger of ‘refusing to participate in the tour’.

The singer has now reportedly hit back at the allegations with a statement published by People.

Her attorney, Howard King, told the publication that Antin is trying to ‘divert blame for her own failures’.

He explained: “Robin will fail in her efforts to trade on Nicole’s hard-earned success to pull herself out of a deep financial hole she has created by her own poor business and professional decisions.

“Nicole has invested her own funds in excess of $150,000 (£109k) in support of a potential PCD reunion that has now been made impossible by Robin’s actions (including the public release of the group members’ confidential financial information).

King continued: “Nicole loves and respects the PCD fans and hopes to one day be back on stage performing the group’s amazing hits for them. Sadly, this will not happen under these circumstances.”

The Pussycat Dolls were originally set to reunite in 2020 but postponed the tour due to the Covid pandemic.

Atkin formed the pop group back in 1995. Originally, she intended for the girls to be a part of a burlesque group but was advised by the iconic producer Jimmy Levine to turn them into a girl band.
