Dawn Richard Talks Breaking Up With Que, Cheating & Leaving Bad Boy On The Breakfast Club

The newly independent Dawn Richard stopped by The Breakfast Club this morning and explained why we haven't seen her with Que (formerly of Day 26) lately--as they used to be attached at the hip.  She alludes to some cheating going down, which ended their 5 year relationship, and dished on why she left Diddy & Bad Boy to do her own thing....

Dawn is officially an independent solo artist.  She discussed this morning with The Breakfast Club on Power 105 that once Diddy said he was done with their group Dirty Money, she asked Diddy & Jimmy Iovine to let her go.

She just released her new EP Armor On as a prelude to her upcoming full length studio album.  And she revealed the ups and downs with that, saying it's a difficult journey.

Dawn also revealed she's a single lady, but dating.  And as for what went down with her ex-boyfriend Que--she said she never wants to put anybody in a bad light, but she's a woman who deserves more.  When asked if he cheated, she didn't confirm...but definitely didn't deny.  Actually sounded more like a Yes to us.  Tisk tisk tisk.

Check out the interview in full below:

Just saw the "Bombs" video on youtube. It is the first video I've seem in a while that I actually watched more than once. Loved the choreography. I'm surprised Natasha hasn't posted it yet. Side note... Carl Thomas new CD "Conquer" is in stores. Support real music.

On the Que issue. I remember

On the Que issue. I remember when I was obsessed with those two. One day Que left some classless tweet about being a free agent right as Dawn was on the radio doing promo with Dirty Money, I remember listening to the interview and Dawn must have read her twitter, got really emotional and Diddy made a reference to boys and men. It was like asif he saw it and got angry. Needless to say, I lost respect for Que, interest in their relationship and saw that Diddy did indeed have Dawns back. I wish her well, admire her for taking the high road and believe Diddy did have her best interest at heart. Que can kick rocks.

Dawn comes from an jazz based

Dawn comes from an jazz based upbringing with a rock influences. If you've got an R&B voice like she has and its new to you who else was she going to reference? She has never made any bones about finding Bran later on in life, respecting, wanting to work with and not being worthy of Brandy so why would she want to do her dirty? They are very different.

There was one moment on Dawns

There was one moment on Dawns mix tape where she sounded exactly like Bran, but honestly, apart from learning from the only female like her in the entire industry.....I do not see any rip off here.

One reason why i like Dawn so

One reason why i like Dawn so much is cuz her material is very Brandy/ James Fauntleroy inspired. from the vocals, to the layering of the vocals, harmonies but i prefer Bran's tone overall.

Definitely love Dawn! I met her in DC and she was beyond genuine! Shout Out to New Orleans and all of Louisiana. I love how eloquent and business-minded she sounds. She definitely learned a lot in this experience (you can tell). PS> everyone knows Louisiana has a french background that's why her name is pronounced "Rishawd" and not "Richurd"!

Dawn has a great voice and personality, but she just needs a stylist... or a better one. She is a beautiful black woman and I wish that her clothing would accent her beauty rather than distracting from it. But I wish her the best of luck within her career.... God bless you lady!

I hope Dawn is successful on

I hope Dawn is successful on her own, she was IMO the most talented one in Danity Kane. Based on this interview I now like her even more as she conducted her self like a true lady with style, charm & grace. I remain confused as to why after Diddy's success in orchestrating the destruction/stagnation of so many promising artists careers, Total, Shyne, 112, Carl Thomas to name a few, why he is still able to attract real talent, when its clear the only 1 that always comes out on top is DIDDY!! He should change the name from Bad Boy to The Black Hole of Records.

Dawn gets a BIG who cares.

Dawn gets a BIG who cares. She left her GAY boyfriend....BIG shock there. She left Bad Boy....bigger "SHOCK". Everyone leaves Bad Boy when they discover the contracts they signed were terrible and that they can't grow under DIDDY. Dawn the problem is nobody cares about you or your LAME music. You won't sell more than 7 thousand copies and i'm being very GENEROUS with your fan base. Just go away please. Thanks!

You sound stupid...or just want to start ish! why would you suggest that an African American Pretty Brown skin sista go away. Its clear she WRITES her OWN music and can dance...has Talent. Why would she go away. and People do care ppl are buying her music......everybody cant be on the cover of a L'Oréal box selling false hope of looking white and having blonde hair. That ish a reality. Now you go have a seat!

Rihanna is not selling false

Rihanna is not selling false ANYTHING sweetie. Let's get that straight. What Rihanna does SELL is MUSIC and a lot of it. How are you comparing a NOT like Dawn to Rihanna? GIRL have a SEAT. Dawn won't sell 7 thousand copies of her TIRED CD nobody is waiting to hear her brand of R&B which as a category is DOWN. Dawn is not any musical talent that can sell on her own. Dawn is a reality star not any person with any vocal talent and she is nothing to even look at. So what do you come away with listening to Dawn? If you support her GR8 but I will never believe that she has a viable fan base at all. Stop being jealous of Rihanna. Rihanna is the QUEEN of this. Dawn is not even a vassal in her COURT. Dawn is the monster in the moat sucking rock algae. NEXT!

Correction......not to take

Correction......not to take nothing form nobody as I heart music, and RIRI does her thing. But, at the end of the day RIHANNA SELLS SEX>>>>NOT MUSIC. Theres a difference OK!!!

Your entire comment is

Your entire comment is invalid. Dawn independently released an EP to Itunes on March 27th. Her EP is sitting at #1 on the Itunes R&B chart and #26 on the Itunes overall charts. Since it was independent with NO label backing that means Dawn pockets ALL of that money. She's #1 and #26 which means she probably ahead of alot of your favs. Apparently, alot of people are buying her EP for it to be doing so well with NO promotion. She is even charting in other countries. Have a seat hater while Dawn laughs all the way to the bank.
