3LW Become 2LW: Naturi Says She's Out Of Group

It seems that three little women are now down to two.

On Wednesday (August 21), 3LW’s Naturi Naughton, with her lawyer in tow, told New York City radio jock Wendy Williams that she has been forced out of the group.

With just over one month to go before the release of the trio’s second album, A Girl Can Mack, a number of canceled appearances had fueled rumors of discord between Naughton and the other members, Kiely Williams and Adrienne Bailon.

Naughton said she had received repeated complaints about her performance, her image and her loyalty to the group from 3LW’s management, which, coincidentally, is run by Kiely’s legal guardian, Michelle Williams – no relation to the Destiny’s Child member.

Naturi, 18, said that the dealbreaker (or triobreaker, as it were) came when Kiely threw a plate of food into her face after a particularly heated argument in South Carolina, prompting her to immediately fly back to her hometown in New Jersey.

At presstime, there is no official response from the remaining two-thirds of 3LW. Naughton claimed that an understudy has already been training to replace her.

The group’s label, Epic Records, and their road manager declined to comment.
