Who is dawn richards dating 2016
Music has played an influential part in her life since early childhood.
Her father is Frank Richard, former lead singer and percussionist of the popular funk/soul band Chocolate Milk.
Once an emblem of strength and sisterhood, pop group Danity Kane -- the product of MTV's "Making the Band 3" competition -- was reduced to tabloid fodder last year when TMZ reported that Dawn Richard struck band mate Aubrey O'Day in the head after an altercation in an L. According to Richard, Danity Kane, which was reborn as a four-piece group in 2013, had been hard at work recording "DK3" when tensions started rising.
Now we're a joke: 'Oh, you punched that girl.' 'Oh, that TMZ story.' That wasn't what we built." Watch Richard's full interview below, and check out her solo album "Blackheart," which was released last week and which Richard says addresses the DK fallout.

In 2009 Richard joined Diddy-Dirty Money with label head Sean "Diddy" Combs and Kalenna Harper, disbanding in 2011.
In 2011, following her departure from Bad Boy Records, Richard launched her solo career.
