In true social media fashion, Dawn Robinson of En Vogue took to Twitter to announce to her fans the split. She said that her and Maxine Jones are going in a different direction from the other two members, Terry Ellis and Cindy Herron.
Robinson made announcements about a recent rehearsal with her and Jones. She also tweeted, “Max & I are thrilled at all the love we are receiving from each of u! This is gonna be FUN. We appreciate being lifted up so high…blessings to each of you.”
The two remaining members of the group writes:
Dear En Vogue fans,
In regards to the recent twitter and Facebook 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
En Vogue is not new to switching and pulling girls out. There are a more modern MoTown group. When someone isn’t up to par or even when Robinson is having her moments, the girls have no problem doing a quick change. However, Ellis and Herron have been consistent within the group. It’s going to be interested to see how things pan out- now that we know they are still together…
