Keisha Buchanan of Sugababes checked in with her Twitter followers (@keisha_buchanan) on Friday (September 11), following news her bandmate Amelle Berrabah had gone missing from the group, apparently telling her bandmates she was tending to a friend who had been injured in a car crash. Keish suggested management should have the police check up on her, but when they did, they found she had been at home the entire time. In a series of Tweets, Keisha writes:
Why the fu** 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. 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 sh** about being famous, we’re all on the same level. I’ve always put this band before me and never thought that I was bigger than it… it’s a great team effort…
TRUTH: I’m going to say that its fair to say in the 1st line up that there were arguments, certain parents were involved then callin shots which caused a lot of sh**. And with the current line up, 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… I’ll 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 I’ll be down today, but I’m a strong girl & will get back up. All I ask is for u not to judge me please, but get to know my heart, give me a chance and don’t believe what you have heard/read about me. I understand that some people are not going to like me & they might believe it and that’s fine because I know that God is my judge and I don’t hate u for it. But to those of you that are supporting me thank you so so… Much, I promise you that I am telling the truth and I won’t let you down. Wow history repeats… This hurts. Thanks again Love kay x
Sugababes Thank Fans For ‘Get Sexy’ Support
September 4, 2009 – Sugababes sent out a message to fans, talking about the feedback they’ve received from them via Twitter about their new single ‘Get Sexy’ and the appearances they’ve made promoting the release.
“It’s nice that you guys are still supporting us, and have done for a long time,” Keisha Buchanan says. “Also as well we’d like to say all these other little sites that you’re on as far as Facebook and ebo and all these other things pretending to be us. It’s really strange but it’s not us at all.”
The video at their MySpace has since been removed.
