From seven down to six, The Pussycat Dolls are now forced to survive with only five members. Red-headed Carmit Bachar who was included in the troupe when they released their 2005 self-titled album, announced her departure from the Nicole Scherzinger-fronted band to start her own career.
According to reports, Bachar who is one of the longest members of the group, announced on Thursday, February 28 that she is leaving the group to "pursue other projects". No rep from the group has commented on this but it is expected that the remaining five will continue the band without replacement.
Carmit joined the band in 1995 while it was still a dancing troupe. When the lots became a singing group, Carmit is made one of the main vocalists alongside Scherzinger and Melody Thornton. The seventh piece, Asia Nitollano who was found through a reality show also left the group in 2007.
Meanwhile, the group reportedly has begun working on their second album.
