“It"s been a painful decision for Sarah, Nicola, Kimberley and Cheryl but they have decided that the future of Girls Aloud lies without Nadine. They"ve all been on a roller-coaster ride since 2002 and have just grown apart from Nadine," The Sun quoted a source as saying.
“Relations with her had been strained within the camp for a while. Disputes began cropping up towards the final days of the band before they went on a hiatus," the source added. “The four remaining girls want to return on their own terms - and avoiding any squabbles is a high priority. That"s why they have decided to go on without Nadine," the source further said.
Girls Aloud, formed in 2002, decided to take a break in 2009 after a busy seven years in action.
