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