It's no secret that The Cheetah Girls
have decided to call it quits after their six-year run. The news comes just weeks after nude photos of band mate Adrienne Bailon
hit the Internet. The controversy, which some thought was a publicity stunt, certainly caused some immediate negative fallout as the girls were dropped from the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade line up. And while Macy's public stance was that it was a “scheduling issue,” other sources claim parade sponsors wanted to distance themselves from the buzz. Member Kiely Williams
insists that the photo scandal is not the reason the girls are breaking up. Nevertheless, the break still comes as a crippling blow to most fans.
December 22 marks the completion of The Cheetah Girls' One World Tour, which is also the last time they'll be performing together. After that, Bailon, Williams, and Sabrina Bryan
will disband. So what's next for The Cheetah Girls?
As expected, members of The Cheetah Girls will likely pursue their own careers, whether it's singing, dancing or acting. But among the members, Adrienne Bailon is the one who landed a solid gig despite all the controversies surrounding her photo scandal.
“I have a lot of cool things in the works/ mazing projects with MTV that are pretty definite,” Bailon said of her upcoming reality series. “Most likely, I will be moving to New York City to work on my own MTV show, which I am so excited about!”
Bailon is no stranger to TV. Aside from The Cheetah Girls
, she has also appeared on That's So Raven
and has been featured on the E! reality show Keeping up with the Kardashians
with her boyfriend, Rob Kardashian. In addition, she has starred in three hit Cheetah Girls
movies for Disney and hopefully, she'll be able to do more when the controversy has been extinguished.
