Sugababes singer blames line-up issues on bandmembers' interfering parents

Sugababes singer blames line-up issues on bandmembers' interfering parents
Sugababes singer Keisha Buchanan has responded angrily to claims that she's had a bust up with bandmate Amelle Berrabah.

Buchanan took to her page to deny that the two have fallen out, and in a series of Tweets she part-blamed Sugababes well-documented line up issues on members interfering parents.

"It's fair to say in the first line-up that there were arguments, certain parents were involved then callin' shots which caused a lot of shit," she wrote.

The bands initial line up consisted of Buchanan, Siobhán Donaghy and Mutya Buena. Donaghy left in 2001, with her departure at the time rumoured to be a result of in-fighting, while Buena quit the band in 2005 shortly after giving birth to her first child.

In her Twitter statement, Buchanan went on to deny having a bust up with Berrabah, who's family alerted police on Wednesday (September 9) after she apparently went missing.

"Why the fuck have I just woken up in LA to 25 phone calls of people telling me that I'm in the paper today for a completely made up story about me bullying Amelle, not being supportive, blah blah blah," Buchanan wrote.

"I've let the papers tell lies about me when it comes to stories like that in the past, I've let members talk crap about me and tried to laugh it off because I know the truth, my friends, family and MOST of [all] GOD. But not anymore. I may come across as a hard nut sometimes, but I'm actually really sensitive and it destroys me to think that people today are going to read that and believe it.

"I feel like no one EVER bothers to look deep into the Sugababes story. They see me as the longest standing member and assume that I'm the bitch who causes people to walk, and it's totally untrue and unfair. All I've ever done is work my ass off, trying to keep the dream alive, because I love the fans and my job. I don't give a shit about being famous, we're all on the same level. I've always put this band before me & never thought that I was bigger than it. It's a great team effort."

Buchanan stated that the current line up of Sugababes is the best yet, before offering to take a lie detector test to prove she hasn't ever bullied anyone ion the band.

"I can honestly say that we all get along! I'm sure we bug each other at times but I love them girls. And there has NEVER been bullying in Sugababes EVER! I don't know what to do anymore. Ill take a lie detector test to prove everything if I have to. I'm sick of this:-( I'm so crushed guys, but I know God is under control, so ill b down today but I'm a strong girl & will get back up."

Before signing off, Buchanan Tweeted: "I promise you that I am telling the truth and I won't let you down. Wow history repeats. This hurts."

Berrabah was found safe and well in London yesterday. She is yet to comment on why she went missing or Buchanan's statement.
