Nadine Coyle shares REAL reason behind ‘bitter’ Girls Aloud split
The Northern Irish beauty is on the cusp of making a triumphant return to the music scene, having landed a solo record deal with Virgin EMI.
While new song Go To Work dropped this morning, Nadine Coyle has finally admitted the truth about why things didn’t work out with the band that made her famous.
After forming on Popstars: The Rivals in 2002, Girls Aloud enjoyed a string of top ten hits and became one of Britain’s most successful female bands.
However, the group was plagued with rift rumours, with reports stating that Nadine, Cheryl, Nicola Roberts, Kimberly Walsh and Sarah Harding were unable to get along.
In 2013, on the final night of their 10th anniversary tour, the girls confirmed they were parting ways for good.
But just what led them to that decision?
According to Nadine — who was widely considered to be ‘the voice’ of the band — there was discord over her having the lead vocals.
Dishing the dirt, the 32-year-old said: “It was fine at the start, but there’s always politics in any band.
“I always got more vocals than everybody else… it made people very bitter”
“It just happened that I always got more vocals than everybody else, so in terms of people wanting their voice heard, that wasn’t happening.”
Revealing there was a bitterness among the group, Nadine told The Sun: “It made people, very bitter. They didn’t like that.
“It’s so sad for me to have to admit this stuff now because for so long, there’s the band, and you want everybody to think we’re best friends…
“That’s what I wanted it to be. I really, really wanted that to be, but it just wasn’t how it was. We’re all very different characters.”
Nadine’s blunt admission comes after her ex-bandmate Sarah hinted at a band rift during her winning appearance on Celebrity Big Brother.
In a candid conversation with Amelia Lilly — who famously toured with Girls Aloud as a support act — the blonde revealed Nadine is the only member she’s kept in touch with.
As it stands, Nadine was also the only Girls Aloud veteran to publicly support Sarah during her time in the house.
