The Pussycat Dolls have been forced to cancel their tour over Covid fears, with Nicole Scherzinger sharing a statement.

The singer admitted she was ‘incredibly saddened’ after investing her own money into it.

The 43-year-old told fans: ‘Thank you to everyone who had tickets to see PCD – we are so appreciative of your support and loyalty!

‘With the ever evolving circumstances surrounding the pandemic, I understand the decision that the tour dates had to be cancelled.

‘I have invested a huge amount of time, creative energy and my own finances into bringing this project back to life and while I’m naturally incredibly saddened by this decision, I am also very proud of what we were able to achieve in the short amount of time we had together before Covid.

‘I can’t put into words the amount of love, admiration, and gratitude I have for the other girls in the group, and the fans that have supported us.’

The Pussycat Dolls reunited after their split in 2009.

However, the tour has been plagued with problems after Nicole and founder of the band Robin Antin got into a bitter legal dispute

Antin filed a lawsuit against the Don’t Cha singer claiming she had threatened to walk away from a reunion tour unless she was given ‘a majority share and complete creative control in relaunching the group’, claims Scherzinger said were ‘ludicrous’.

Meanwhile, Kimberly Wyatt pleaded with the pair to ‘stop the drama’.

‘There’s some fighting going on between the creator Robin and Nicole,’ the 39-year-old explained on Loose Women.

‘And so I have no idea what’s going to happen but I’m trying to stay optimistic. I feel like we’ve built such an epic moment of this comeback performance and this comeback tour and all the fans are so excited around the world right along with us.

‘I’m just gonna stay optimistic and hope that it does happen, I think that the fighting and the drama needs to end and we need to focus on getting back out there.’
