"To liken our professional roles in The Pussycat Dolls to a prostitution ring ... takes the spotlight off the millions of victims who are speaking up," the statement reads.

The Pussycat Dolls are shutting down former PCD member Kaya Jones, who called the group a "prostitution ring."

Following Jones' recent allegations that the Nicole Scherzinger-led ensemble required her "sleep with whoever they say" to be "a team player," the remaining members of the group told TooFab in a statement Wednesday that her claims are entirely false.

The statement reads:

The Pussycat Dolls has always and will always stand for female empowerment and sisterhood. We stand in solidarity with all women who have bravely spoken publicly of their horrific experiences of abuse, harassment and exploitation. However, we cannot stand behind false allegations towards other group members partaking in activities that simply did not take place.

To liken our professional roles in The Pussycat Dolls to a prostitution ring not only undermines everything we worked hard to achieve for all those years but also takes the spotlight off the millions of victims who are speaking up and being heard loud and clear around the world. While we were not aware of Kaya's experiences that allegedly took place during her short time working with us, before the group signed a recording contract, we can firmly testify that we were not privy to any misconduct taking place around us. If Kaya experienced something we are unaware of then we fully encourage her to get the help she needs and are here to support her.

Since its inception, The Pussycat Dolls and founder Robin Antin have supported and empowered women from all walks of life to flourish in their careers. Should any member or associate allude to any form of abuse or harassment whatsoever, it will be taken very seriously and investigated.

We truly wish Kaya the best and hope she gets the help she deserves.

The statement comes just three days after PCD founder Robin Antin also denied the allegations, saying Jones was "clearly looking for her 15 minutes" of fame with "disgusting, ridiculous lies."

Antin added she was surprised Jones thought she could speak on behalf of the troupe, considering she was never an official member of The Pussycat Dolls. According to Antin, Jones was just one of the girls who auditioned and participated in a trial run.
