Well the rumors were ‘almost’ true. There was a laot of buzz this week that Amelle Was about to quit Sugababes, but the truth is that its the final original member who is walking – Keisha.

Keisha Buchanan, 24, has confirmed her departure in a statement. She will be replaced by the UK’s Eurovision Song Contest singer Jade Ewen.

A statement on the band’s website read: “The current line-up of the Sugababes has disbanded. Heidi Range and Amelle Berrabah will continue as the Sugababes and will be joined by new member Jade Ewen.

keishaThey release their album Sweet 7 on November 23 through Island Records. Keisha Buchanan will continue to record for Island Records as a solo artist.”

The group have recently been the subject of media speculation after Amelle Berrabah reportedly went missing two weeks ago. Buchanan defended herself against reports she was the troublemaker of the band.

Amelle Berrabah has reportedly left the Sugababes. The all-girl trio have topped the charts six times but have been dogged by rumours of in-fighting.

If these reports turn out to be true, Amelle will become the third person to have left the band over the years, following in the footsteps of Siobhan Donaghy in 2001 and Mutya Buena in 2005.

Keisha Buchanan is the only member of the original line-up still left in the band and the girls have been quick to silence talk of disagreements between her and Amelle following the latter’s solo chart success with Tinchy Stryder.

According to a celebrity website, Amelle will be replaced by former UK Eurovision entrant Jade Ewen.

The Sugababes’ spokeswoman would not comment on reports about the personnel changes in the band.

amelle02Sugababes have released 2 studio albums since Amelle Joined. ‘Change‘ – which featured the hit singles ‘About you now‘, ‘Change‘ and Denial.

The second album was  ‘Catfights & Spotlights‘ which contained the singles ‘Girls‘ and ‘No can do’.

The thrid album ‘Sweet 7‘ is due for release in november 2009 which features the single ‘Get sexy‘.

Amelle was embroiled in controversy earlier in the year when her boyfriend was attacked with a machette and almost had his arm severed.
