The Danity Kane star shared the info in a new YouTube video
Aubrey O’Day, the singer and reality television personality, says her former mentor, Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs, asked her to sign an NDA to never disparage the rapper and his label, Bad Boy.
O’Day revealed the info in a YouTube video and said that she wasn’t going to sign the NDA and told her fellow Danity Kane band members not to sign it either.
The host of @SOHTV channel asked, “So that you just got recently?”
“I got it a few months ago when he started doing this,” the singer said.
O’Day and her group, Danity Kane, worked with Bad Boy records for six years, producing two platinum albums.
Combs recently shared that he is giving back rights to artists he has signed through the years.
O’Day noted that, adding, “So what’s happening is, artists — some of them, not all of them — are being given streaming royalties and ownership back over our publishing on songs that we wrote at a time when you know that you have to stream a song a million times to make a cent. It’s hundreds of dollars.”
“And me, as somebody that’s a girl’s girl, I hit everyone in my group and said, ‘Absolutely do not take this deal. I can get us a show on Hulu right now,” she said.
Reports have said that O’Day wants to make a documentary-style show about the inner workings of the entertainment business and share her experiences.
Combs, who was recently presented with the Global Icon Award at the 2023 VMAs, shared more about the reason behind his decision to reassign publishing rights back to artists or their estates, as was the LOX, Ma$e, The Notorious B.I.G. and others. Combs’ criticism of the Grammys was the first step.
"You have to look within and be a part of that change,” he told site, Hot New Hip Hop. "This actually was done two years ago," he described. "It was more of me just evolving as a businessman, you know, a person that really wants change in the world."
O’Day first rose to public prominence in 2004 as she competed on Combs’ Making the Band 3, eventually being chosen to join girl group Danity Kane.
But, in October 2008, during the finale of Making the Band 4, Combs confirmed that O’Day had been kicked out of the group. According to MTV, he went on to tell her on-air that “your attitude is gonna have you in a dark and lonely place. … What you need to do at the end of the day is humble yourself.”

“I just want to work with the young lady that I signed, not the person that fame has made her,” he continued.
Most notably, the singer appeared on season 5 of Celebrity Apprentice in 2012, where she met Trump Jr., and on Famously Single in 2016, where she met her ex-boyfriend, Jersey Shore’s Paul “DJ Pauly D” DelVecchio.
