Nicole Scherzinger has carved out an amazing career as a solo artist and X Factor judge, but there’s one lady who doesn’t seem very happy about her success.
Former Doll Carmit Bachar has told The Sun today that Nicole’s “jealousy” was the real reason the Pussycat Dolls split up.
She said: “Nicole was jealous of Ashley. She felt threatened by her – like people would prefer her because of the way she looked.”
Ashley is currently camping in the jungle on I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.
Carmit added: “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. 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.
Wowsers. It gets worse…
She added: “I think Nicole got it into her head that she was the real star and would be better off on her own. She started travelling 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. She would often call me late at night crying her eyes out. I know Nicole’s attitude got to her.
“Nicole basically wanted to be front and centre all the time. We were expected to work our arses off to boost Nicole and her own career. The situation became unbearable.
“A Pussycat Dolls reunion isn’t out of the question. Five of us – and not Nicole – could happen. But all six? Never. Too much water under the bridge.”
