It’s a damn shame when a legendary singing group can’t get their personal stuff together to work together. En Vogue is splitting up, literally. The original funky divas have separated into two factions.
The original members reunited in 2010 after Dawn Robinson left the group in 1997. En Vogue’s plan was to reunite for a 20th anniversary album and tour, but the same problems that caused Dawn to leave in 1997 reappeared. Cindy, Terry, Dawn, and Maxine were plagued by arguments, nasty attitudes, and disagreements over money. Those issues forced Dawn Robinson to exit the group for a second time. However, things are different this time because she took Maxine with her and they are starting their own version of the girl group.

Dawn Robinson announced the “new” En Vogue on twitter, saying, “MAXINE & I HAVE LEFT THE BUILDING & NOW WE’RE REHEARSING FOR AN EV TOUR W 2 “NEW” GIRLS. WE WILL BE IN UR CITY SOON SO COME PARTY WITH US!”
The remaining members of the original line up, Cindy and Terry, responded to Robinson’s tweets with a statement where they acknowledged the drama but didn’t go into detail. In a joint message Cindy and Terry stated,
Dear EnVogue fans,
In regards to the recent twitter and face book posts alleging that Terry and Cindy have replaced Maxine Jones with Rhona, we would like to respond. Terry and Cindy are not replacing Maxine Jones. We have however asked Rhona to fill in temporarily so that we can continue to bring live shows to our fans. Thus far, Rhona has only done three shows with us since June 2012. The group has always added someone whenever a member has been unable or unwilling to perform or has left the group. Terry and I have not kicked Maxine out of the group. There are always two sides to a story and many internal facts that you the fans aren’t hearing about. In an effort to not air dirty laundry, or appear to point the finger at anyone, we respectfully choose to remain silent on the internal issues. We appreciate you the fans continuing to support Envogue individually, and as a whole.
Cindy and Terry
If this isn’t the definition of hot ass mess, I don’t know what is. How are you going to have two separate groups with the same name touring and singing the same damn songs? Although En Vogue puts on a great live show no matter if all the original members are there or not, nobody has time for two versions of En Vogue with new girls. That’s not hot. Cindy, Terry, Maxine, and Dawn need to get it all the way together!
