The once popular American pop girl group Pussycat Dolls has been fending off rumors of a possible split, what with the founder Robin Antin insisting that to the contrary.
Some media reports had suggested that lead singer Nicole Scherzinger was not in good terms with other band members.
However, Antin issued a statement saying there "is no truth" to all such gossip.
"The Pussycat Dolls are very much alive and there is no truth to the silent treatment statements. Nicole and the Dolls have ALWAYS been close," the BBC quoted Antin, as saying.
She added: "Nicole is and always has been a strong creative force within this group and I cherish the way we collaborate.
"The Pussycat Dolls have proven their success over many years and will continue to do so."
