Robin Antin labels Kaya Jones' Pussycat Dolls prostitution comparison 'disgusting lies'

  Robin Antin labels Kaya Jones' Pussycat Dolls prostitution comparison 'disgusting lies' Pussycat Dolls founder Robin Antin has slammed former member Kaya Jones' comments comparing her time in the group to being in a prostitution ring as "disgusting, ridiculous lies". Kaya, who recorded a few demo tracks with the band before leaving in 2004 to pursue other projects, took to Twitter on Friday (13Oct17) to allege members of the girl group were told to sleep with men on demand. "My truth. I wasn't in a girl group. I was in a prostitution ring. Oh & we happened to sing & be famous. While everyone who owned us made the $," she began her lengthy rant. "How bad was it? People ask - bad enough that I walked away from my dreams, my bandmates & a 13 million dollar record deal. We knew we were going to be #1.” Calling out the "den mother" of the group without naming names, she continued: "I want the den mother from hell to confess why another 1 of her girl group girls committed suicide? Tell the public how you mentally broke us" Now Robin, who founded the group as a burlesque troupe in 1995 before they made a name for themselves in the music world, has hit out at Kaya's allegations, telling The Blast that the singer is "clearly looking for her 15 minutes" of fame. She also slammed Kaya for bringing up the suicide of former G.R.L. member Simone Battle, saying she was "nasty" in doing so. Sources close to Robin and the band added to the outlet that the group have contacted their legal team to draft a letter to Kaya, warning her to stop "spreading lies and damaging the brand, or face the legal consequences". Lead singer Nicole Scherzinger has yet to address Kaya's comments.

Andy Serkis: Breathe is a story about the human spirit

  Andy Serkis: Breathe is a story about the human spirit Andy Serkis is incredibly proud of his directorial debut 'Breathe' because the story he tells about the real life of paralysed polio sufferer Robin Cavendish shows the incredible power of the "human spirit".Andy Serkis is proud of his new movie 'Breathe' because it is a story about the power of the "human spirit".

Robin Williams ’ s beloved character Alan Parrish will be a major presence in the Jumanji sequel . He built up a full-blown jungle house, similar to a Swiss Family Robinson situation. “It’s like he’s there helping us without actually being there.”

The Rock's ' Jumanji ' Sequel is All Jungle, All the Time. Well, we don’t know, but we ’re pretty sure the answer is Jumanji — and this time, the crew is in the game. It’s what happened to Robin Williams ’ s character in the 1995 Jumanji movie.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle will directly explain what happened to Robin Williams' character from the original 1995 film. The new movie is a sequel and reboot starring Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and Kevin Hart.

Welcome to the Jungle replaces the original's magical board game - which allowed a stampede of animals into the real world - with a video game which absorbs the film's human stars into it, casting them as in-game avatars.

These avatars are played by Johnson, Hart, Jack Black and former Doctor Who star Karen Gillan, who explained the film's connection to the original to Collider.

Jumanji Robin Williams © TriStar Pictures Jumanji Robin Williams "Well I've always wondered where Robin Williams' character [Alan Parrish] went for all of that time in the first one," she said, referring to Parrish being absorbed by Jumanji for 26 years. "It was sort of left to the imagination a little.

Jack Black Reveals How the ‘ Jumanji ’ Sequel Will Pay Tribute to Robin Williams . “ We ’re exploring this jungle and trying to conquer the game; it’ s life or death. But while we ’re there, we find clues left behind by [ Williams ’ character Alan Parrish].

Jumanji Sequel Will Honor To Robin Williams In The Sweetest Way. " We ’re exploring this jungle and trying to conquer the game; it’ s life or death," Black told The Hollywood Reporter. "But while we ’re there, we find clues left behind by [ Williams ’ character Alan Parrish].

"That's where this film comes in, we get to see exactly where he went and what it feels like and what it looks like I guess that's the biggest difference."

When the new film's characters are suckered into the Jumanji video game, they'll explore the same world where Parrish spent those 26 years and presumably find what he got up to during that time.

They'll do so as the game's avatars, with Alex Wolff's nerdy kid becoming hulking adventurer Dr Smolder Bravestone (The Rock), Madison Iseman's most popular girl in school becoming Professor Shelly Oberon (Black), Ser'Darius Blain's high school sports star as zoologist Franklin Finbar (Hart) and Morgan Turner's nervous girl as commando Ruby Roundhouse (Gillan).

The film also stars Nick Jonas as the in-game guide and Bobby Cannavale as the film's antagonist.

The original became a cult childhood favourite in the 90s and starred a young Kirsten Dunst opposite Williams, Bonnie Hunt and Jonathan Hyde.
