A spokesperson for Sean Combs has denied claims his pop girl group DANITY KANE is on the verge of a split to make way for the solo career of one of its members.
Combs has reportedly planned the break-out of 23-year-old Dawn Richard, causing tensions in the five-girl group.
A posting on website Young, Black + Fabulous claims the hip-hop mogul "has been flying Dawn out from Baltimore to him for private meetings. And these meetings are preparing her to be the breakout star in a solo career. Apparently, Diddy believes she's the most talented of the group, and the girls are pissy because they disagree."
But Combs' Atlantic Records spokeswoman Cara Donatto has denied the rumours, insisting the girls "absolutely" get along.
She says: "At no point was Dawn flown anywhere to record solo or meet alone with Diddy. The girls are still very much together. They're going out to the (MTV) Video Music Awards together... and they're promoting their album Welcome to the Dollhouse and working on their third."
