Pretty Ricky's singer Marcus Ramone Cooper aka Pleasure announced his departure from the band while confirming that he had been replaced.
While still enjoying the success of their second album, R&B group Pretty Ricky revealed a shocking announcement about member Pleasure. The singer, whose real name is Marcus Ramone Cooper, announced that he has severed ties with the band to go back as a solo artist.
Pleasure confirmed the departure on his MySpace, saying: "Hey y'all I want to address something to y'all. I Love each and everyone of my fans and I would never do anything to upset y'all and disappoint y'all. I want to apologize to all of my Baltimore fans."
"I want to say that it is true I have been replaced by someone else in the group Pretty Ricky, so if you see the group on stage, it's not me but another person. I love my brothers and I will always love them. We have no beef but I feel it's time for me to give y'all what y'all been waiting for, an R 'n' B album!"
"If it wasn't for pretty Ricky they would never be no Pleasure. I'm not here to diss the group but I'm here to let you know what's going on. I'm working on a album just for my superstars and I'll also be in a city near you to come and visit y'all."
There's still no official statement from Pretty Ricky regarding the departure and the replacement.
