Legendary R&B girl group En Vogue may be making some changes in their line up once again. After Dawn Robinson left the group in 1997, the group has seen the coming and going of members for her replacement until 2010, when the group reunited with all four original members for a 20th anniversary tour and album.
According to ThatGrapeJuice.net, Robinson has since left the group again, and announced via Twitter that Maxine Jones has also left, and will be going forward as a “new” En Vogue. Robinson’s tweeted announcement say, “MAXINE & I HAVE LEFT THE BUILDING & NOW WE’RE REHEARSING FOR AN EV TOUR W 2 “NEW” GIRLS. WE WILL BE IN UR CITY SOON SO COME PARTY WITH US!…Max & I are thrilled at all the love we are receiving from each of u! This is gonna be FUN…We appreciate being lifted up so high…blessings to each of you.”
Cindy and Terry, the remaining members, responded with an open letter to fans:
“Dear EnVogue fans,
In regards to the recent twitter and face book posts alleging that Terry and Cindy have replaced Maxine Jones with Rhona, we would like to respond. Terry and Cindy are not replacing Maxine Jones. We have however asked Rhona to fill in temporarily so that we can continue to bring live shows to our fans. Thus far, Rhona has only done three shows with us since June 2012. The group has always added someone whenever a member has been unable or unwilling to perform or has left the group. Terry and I have not kicked Maxine out of the group. There are always two sides to a story and many internal facts that you the fans aren’t hearing about. In an effort to not air dirty laundry, or appear to point the finger at anyone, we respectfully choose to remain silent on the internal issues. We appreciate you the fans continuing to support Envogue individually, and as a whole.
Cindy and Terry”
Stay tuned to see how this turns out. The saga continues…
