Pussycat Dolls perfomers Carmit Bachar and Jessica Sutta have spoken out about the cancellation of the group’s reunion tour, claiming they were not made aware of it before an announcement was made on Instagram.
A decade on from their original split, the Pussycat Dolls confirmed towards the end of 2019 that they were reforming for an arena tour.

However, shortly after this, Carmit and Jessica released a joint statement claiming they’d had “no official notification” about the fate of the tour.
“We want to say how incredibly disappointed we are to learn of an announcement made on Instagram that the Pussycat Dolls reunion tour is cancelled,” they said. “As of now, there has been no official notification of that.
“Either way, it seems as though it’s the end of a chapter to an incredible, life-altering experience filled with awesome memories that we will forever be grateful for.
“To the fans, we love you. Trust us, this is not the outcome we had hoped for. We wanted it as much as you because we appreciate you all so much and it hurts our hearts you had to wait …read more
