Sugababes to split?

Rumours of the 'babes' splitting popped up a few weeks ago when Amelle Berrabah reportedly went missing for several days, following a bust-up with fellow member Keisha Buchanan. Keisha and Heidi Range were forced to perform as a duo, while Amelle was nowhere to be seen...

The buzz on Amelle quitting then reached a high last week when Heatworld announced that Eurovision singer Jade Ewen would be replacing Amelle. Jade Ewen's record label Geffen even sent out an official statement which said that Jade Ewen would be taking time off from all promotional activity for a while.

So what is really going on? According to a message by Amelles sister on Twitter, Amelle is with Heidi and Keisha in LA shooting the video for their next single. Keisha has claimed the rumours of Amelle quitting and her being a bully are not true, however this morning a new source has claimed that all three existing Sugababes have been sworn to secrecy by their label.

It also emerged today that the Sugababes are all attending the MOBOs but not as a group. Keisha is there to present an award and Amelle will be performing her duet with Tinchy Stryder. All this confusion is making our heads hurt An official statement is expected from the babes record company in the next few days, thankfully.

The Sugababes have already seen two line-up changes. The band formed in 1998 with original members Keisha Buchanan, Mutya Buena and Siobhan Donaghy. Siobhan quit in 2001, claiming she was bullied out by Keisha. The girls saw massive success with new member Heidi Range, and kept going despite Mutya leaving the band in 2005. Can the band really survive their newest band member Amelle leaving?
