From En Vogue to the Supremes: Infamous female R&B group splits (SLIDESHOW)

After uniting for a 20-year anniversary tour, En Vogue’s Dawn Robinson took to Twitter to inform fans that she, along with Maxine Jones, have left the classic ’90s R&B group and is preparing to tour with a “new” incarnation. Other members, Cindy Herron and Terry Ellis wrote a lengthy letter to fans as well to explain their side of the story.

Dear En Vogue fans,

In regards to the recent twitter and Facebook posts alleging that Terry and Cindy have replaced Maxine Jones with Rhona, we would like to respond. Terry and Cindy are not replacing Maxine Jones. We have however asked Rhona to fill in temporarily so that we can continue to bring live shows to our fans. Thus far, Rhona has only done three shows with us since June 2012. The group has always added someone whenever a member has been unable or unwilling to perform or has left the group. Terry and I have not kicked Maxine out of the group. There are always two sides to a story and many internal facts that you the fans aren’t hearing about. In an effort to not air dirty laundry, or appear to point the finger at anyone, we respectfully choose to remain silent on the internal issues. We appreciate you the fans continuing to support EnVogue individually, and as a whole.

Thank you,

Cindy and Terry

Robinson previously left the group to focus on solo endeavors, including 1999s supergroup Lucy Pearl, which featured singer Raphael Saadiq. It is unclear whether Robinson alone has left En Vogue (or been kicked out without being told), or whether she and Maxine have actually formed a separate singing group without informing Cindy and Terry. Very messy indeed, but it wouldn’t be the first messy break-up in girl group history.

Inspired by En Vogue’s split theGrio has compiled images of iconic female groups that have have disbanded over the years.
