Girls Aloud's Kimberley Walsh Reveals Nadine Coyle Dispute During Final Tour Shows

16 September 2013, 15:00

The 'Call The Shots' singer has also criticised Louis Walsh's management style during his time with the band.

Girls Aloud star Kimberley Walsh has revealed more about the oft-alleged dispute between band member Nadine Coyle and the rest of the group.

Writing in her new autobiography, A Whole Lot Of History, Kimberley reveals that 'Something New' singer Nadine initially refused to sign off on a press release to announce the group's split earlier this year.

The girl band performed a final tour in the UK which ended with a final show at the start of 2013, after which they announced on Twitter that the group had come to the end of their time together.

However, Kimberley says plans were almost derailed by Nadine refusing to agree to a press release confirming the split.

"An hour before the very last show Nadine point blank refused to agree to any kind of press release," Kimberley reveals in an extract from the book published on The Sun this week. "But we had to let the fans know somehow.

"In the end, we made the announcement on Twitter, which we thought would be a nice direct connection to the fans," the Girls Aloud star explained.

Kimberley has also opened up about Girls Aloud's time being managed by The X Factor UK's Louis Walsh, saying he was never a "hands-on type of manager" and claiming the group "suffered" for a while because of it.

"He has since admitted to me he didn't know what to do with five girls and that he was a bit scared of us, but I'm not sure that's the whole truth," Kimberley explains in her book. "Louis has just never really been a hands-on type of manager and back then we suffered because of it.

"Whatever the case, his disappearing act meant we had nobody looking after us and nobody fighting our corner as far as record company decision went," she added. "There seemed to be lots of hanging around and not knowing what was going on, and the main reason was that Louis seemed to have disappeared off the face of the earth."

Kimberley Walsh is set to publish her autobiography A Whole Lot Of History on 26th September.
