MEOW: Nadine Coyle Finally Reveals Reason For Girls Aloud Split

Nadine Coyle has finally spoken out about that famous split, and has accused Cheryl and her other former bandmates of 'plotting behind her back'.

The Derry native was left reeling after the band announced that they were to split. Rumours were rife at the time that the 29-year-old herself was actually behind the split, but the singer now says that her fellow bandmates didn’t give her an option.


“I didn’t want the band to end. I didn’t think we were going to end. And then, on the very last night of the tour, our management and publicist came up to me and said the girls wanted the band to split,” she said.

“I was already in hair and make-up about to get into my costume… I was like ‘F**k I don’t have a job! What am I going to do?’

“I was really dramatic for about 15 minutes and then it was over again. I couldn’t kick and scream and change their minds – but had it been me, I would have done it differently. Not just before you go out on stage.”


Nadine was so shocked by the decision that she then refused to sign any paperwork to confirm the end of the group.

“I didn’t want to put my name to anything to do with it. I said, ‘If you want to write this thing from these four then write it – but I am taking no part in it. I never signed it, so technically I’m still in Girls Aloud. I’m a one man band!”

The 29-year-old lifted the lid on the break-up in an interview with the Daily Mirror.
