The all-female singing group G.R.L, – consisting of Lauren Bennett, Emmalyn Estrada, Natasha Slayton and Paula van Oppen – has broken up.

“Nearly 9 months following the tragic death of band member Simone Battle, girl group G.R.L. announces today that they are disbanding,” Kemosabe Records, RCA Records, Larry Rudolph and Robin Antin wrote in a statement (via Billboard). “We wish them continued success in each of their next creative endeavors.”
