KIMBERLY Walsh has accused former Girls Aloud bandmate Nadine Coyle of betraying the rest of the group after signing a personal manager.
In extracts from her new book, Kimberly Walsh also reveals she wouldn’t have been friends with Nadine or Sarah had she not been in the band.
Walsh reveals that old tensions surfaced in the band during their farewell tour last year, in extracts published in The Sun.
When the rest of the band realised that Coyle had hired her own personal manager, they began to think she wasn't entirely committed to its future.
She claims that the Derry native changed after beginning to spend more time in LA.
Walsh also claims that Nadine point blank refused to agree to a public statement announcing the band’s split prior to their last show.
She claims that the band were shocked when Coyle then later came out saying she did not want the band to split.
In her book Walsh also hits out at Girls Aloud’s first manager, Mayo man Louis Walsh.
She said the group felt abandoned by the manager, and that they would often wait around with no one quite sure where they were meant to be.
Walsh responded to the singer’s allegations by saying “Kimberly who?”
