Nadine claims her singing abilities shaped the bands divide.
Following Sarah Harding’s recent appearance on Celebrity Big Brother, in which the winner made several references to her girl band days, the attention of many has turned back to the former Girls Aloud band members.
Following their split in 2013, after over a decade of musical success, there has been much speculation over the true reason for the ladies parting ways.
And, with the actual reason still widely unconfirmed by group, there has been multiple allegations within the press alluding to a longstanding feud.
However, former band-member Nadine Coyle has now broken her silence over the matter – revealing her role in the band had a big part of their decision to call it a day.
Nadine has shared that she felt the group had become very separated, with her and Sarah Harding on one side and Cheryl, Kimberley Walsh and Nicola Roberts on the other.
According to Nadine, this divide had began to develop over rising tensions caused by singing abilities within the group. She shares that as she was considered to be the best singer, this had caused a rift with the other ladies.
Speaking with The Sun, Nadine shared: “It was fine at the start but there’s always politics in any band. It just happened that I always got more vocals than everybody else, so in terms of people wanting their voice heard, that wasn’t happening. And it made people, very bitter. They didn’t like that.”
Speaking of their separation from each other, Nadine continues: “It’s so sad for me to have to admit this stuff now because for so long, there’s the band, and you want everybody to think we’re best friends and we have pillow fights and, you know, drink milkshakes. That’s what I wanted it to be.”
The mum-of-one then adds that this hasn’t been the case, sharing: “I really, really wanted that to be, but it just wasn’t how it was. So yeah there was [a divide]. We’re all very, very different characters.”
