All girl group the Pussycat Dolls have split amid continual rows, it has been reported.
Tensions have been mounting over the increasing popularity over lead singer Nicole Scherzinger.
The remaining members Ashley Roberts, Jessica Sutta, Kimberly Wyatt and Melody Thornton are reported to have been unhappy about the rise in profile of the star, who is also the girlfriend of British racing champion Lewis Hamilton, and the greater focus given to her in the line-up.
A source said to be close to the Pussycat Dolls told The New York Post: "It is war. They have broken up for good.
"None of the other girls are speaking to Nicole, who they believe took the limelight, then went off to do her own thing."
Reports of an impending break-up have escalated since the group announced they were "taking a break" in September to each pursue their own projects.
However the claims have been denied by the girl band's founder, dancer and choreographer Robin Antin, who is releasing a Pussycat Dolls fitness DVD next month.
Antin told told US website Hollyscoop: "The Pussycat Dolls are very much alive and there is no truth to the silent treatment statements.
"Nicole and the Dolls have always been close. Nicole is and always has been a strong creative force within this group and I cherish the way we collaborate."
The girl band started out as a burlesque act in Los Angeles in the mid-90s before finding international fame with the smash hit 'Don't Cha' in 2005.
