Girlband The Sugababes are being sued by founder member Keisha Buchanan – who is trying to BAN the group from using their name.

Keisha, who formed the band in 1998, has launched a legal bid to claim a stake in the Sugababes brand – which she says has grown into a multi-million pound business over the past 12 years.

Keisha – who was forced to quit the chart-toppers last September – has now demanded that the current line-up of Heidi Range, Amelle Berrabah and Jade Ewen call themselves something else or pay her a one-off sum which could potentially be millions of pounds.

If her dramatic High Court action is successful, it could spell the end for the band, who are soon due to release their new album Sweet 7. Continue Reading….

New look Sugababes - Heidi, Jade and Amelle

Wow Keisha isn’t messing around.

Heidi and Amelle now spend their time in interviews crying and labelling former band mate Keisha “a bully”. But it’s not helping and the new Sugababes line up/look seems to be flopping. 

The last single release About A Girl failed to set the charts on fire and the re-recorded forthcoming album Sweet 7 stripped of Keisha’s original vocals, has ‘major fail’ written all over it.

I wish you the best of luck with this lawsuit Keisha.

This is going to be interesting!

  1. But really, did they think that they could take over the BRAND and make it their own, when the girl is still living?

    Well done Keisha, the S-babes haven’t been professional since Keisha’s depart, they’ve only got bad things to say.

  2. To be honest, Heidi’s very much a sugababe. She was around, when the Sugababes sound took effect. Sugababes 2.0 are the Sugababes, that’s when they got their edge, their sound, their everything, so Heidi better wisen up. And if we go by Keisha’s logic, Mutya should join the suit.

    I always find it funny, when people keep asking for Sugababes 1.0, something was wrong with the original formula, if a founding member did a runner just after 1 album. The members keep leaving, there has to be a reason. Enough all ready.

    I always thought Keisha would be a Sugababe forever, since she’d drive everyone away to the nearest SOS hotline. I expect some serious dirty lingerie during the proceedings.

  3. Good! I still cant believe the record company blatantly kept using the name after all orignal memebers had been axed – gwaaan keesh!

  4. Go keisha, fair dues why should they benefit off 12 years of her hard work.
    She started it and it should realistically finish with her when she left.
    go get them.

  5. Hope Keisha gets every £££
    To kick someone out of their own band is cheeky wether they were bullied or not

  6. Nah, Heidi was there when the group became sucessful! I hope Keisha burns, she always bothered me even though I love the groups music.
