Nicole Scherzinger has left her former bandmate, Kaya Jones, furious after The X Factor judge claimed that she did all the work in The Pussycat Dolls and that the other girls were just "window dressing".
Although Kaya did not deny these claims, she insisted that rest of the girls were heavily involved in the Pussycat Dolls, and weren't just there to be eye candy.
She told TMZ.com: ''There was a lot more going on behind the scenes. Nicole was always someone who wanted to be in the spotlight and would do pretty much anything to get it.
"To call the other girls in the Pussycat Dolls 'window dressings' is a bit far-fetched ... every girl in the group was talented.''
Nicole Scherzinger made a dramatic revelation about the Pussycat Dolls in a new documentary, admitting that she sang 95 per cent of all vocals.
In a 'Behind the Music' special Scherzinger said that her fellow bandmates Melody Thornton, Ashley Roberts, Kimberly Wyatt, Jessica Sutta and Carmit Bachar had next to no involvement in the Pussycat Doll's music and were given undue credit.
''I love those girls. They're like my sisters. But people don't even know the whole story," Scherzinger says in the documentary. "They have no idea. I was in the centre because I was singing."
The successful group was formed in 2003 and released their first single, 'Don't Cha', in April 2005.

Scherzinger revealed that she "probably did 95 percent" of the singing "on my own" for the band's debut album.
"I hope I don't get in trouble for the stuff that I say," Scherzinger says, "but I'll never forget I finished the album, PCD, and Ron and I brought the girls into the studio and we played it for them. It was the first time they'd ever heard the music."

"Do you understand what I'm saying? We played the album for the Pussycat Dolls," she says. "It was the first time they'd ever heard the songs."
Executive producer Ron Fair backed up the singer's claims, "Melody sang a bit here and there, but the records were Nicole, with the exception of an occasional ad-lib. They were Nicole. It was her."
Pussycat Dolls split in 2010, with Nicole now on the current judging panel of the X Factor.
