Danity Kane singer Dawn Richard is breaking her silence about the group's breakup.
Created out of Sean "Diddy" Combs' MTV show "Making the Band 3," the group announced their split Friday after reports of a violent episode between Richard and her bandmate Aubrey O'Day.
Richard, who was accused of punching O'Day, took to her Facebook account to say that she's "not proud" of "certain choices" that she made. However, she adds that she "will not be disrespected."
Richard also apologized to fans and wrote that the incident should have been handled privately before it was publicized.
Group members Aubrey O'Day and Shannon Bex released their own statements via Danity Kane's social media accounts. O'Day claimed the attack from Richard was unprovoked and that it has been "followed by no sign of remorse."
The group was in the middle of recording a new album ahead of the breakup.
