When did Melody Thornton join The Pussycat Dolls and why did she quit?
Melody, who was nicknamed “Baby Doll” for being the youngest member, joined The Pussycat Dolls after she saw the group on MTV Diaries and heard they were looking for a new member.
She joined the girls in 2003 and was added into the mix to bring “vocal strength”.
They had worldwide success with hits including Don’t Cha, When I Grow Up, Buttons and Jai Ho!
In 2010, reports confirmed that the talented performer had left the group to pursue a solo career.
Speaking at the time, Melody said: "I got into the group to sing. That was made very clear to me. But it became more and more apparent what was going on. Roles were being minimised and minimised, and then by the time it got on the show, it was very much like, 'Y'all play your part and this is what it is’. It was tough because you don't want to sh*t on your own opportunity."
Does Melody Thornton have a boyfriend?
Melody is currently thought to be single.
In 2017 she dated a string of strangers as part of E4 reality show, Celebs Go Dating, but didn't meet anyone special.

Reports claim she once also dated rapper Kanye West.
