If you have tickets for any of the upcoming Josie and the Pussycats reunion concerts, you better get in line for a refund. The bands agent, Alexander, has released a statement saying that the reunion tour has been cancelled due to internal conflicts within the band.
Sources close to the band say the conflict is partially due to the triangle love affair going on between Melody (drums), Valerie (tamborines), and Captain Caveman. All three have denied the rumors, but friends of the girls say the on again-off again affair has turned abusive again.
Paparazzi caught Melody leaving Captain Caveman's upscale apartment last month appearing to have a black eye. She was also yelling into her cell phone "...the hairy bastard hit me again..."
Captain Caveman and Valerie had a relationship in the late 70's and at one time were engaged to be married. The engagement was broken off after Valerie found out about a late night affair in the Mystery Machine between Melody and Captain Caveman. It is believed the Captain traded a box of Scooby Snacks to Norville "Shaggy" Rogers for the use of the van. After this affair, the Pussycats touring days were over.
Soon after the split, Valerie became involved with Tinker, the Speed Buggy mechanic. This relationship was short lived and Valerie began taking on a solo music career. She had a modest hit in the 80's with "The Captain Doesn't Fly Here Anymore" . Subsequent singles failed to chart and Valerie got involved with helping the homeless.
Melody and Captain Caveman had a tumultuous relationship over the years. Melody has also been plagued by an eating disorder, as well as being bi-polar. The Captain has long been rumored to have anger issues and has been arrested several times for assault and domestic abuse. He and Melody seem to have had a healthier relationship over the past 3 years. However, with the recent reunion tour kicking off, emotions from the past, between Valerie and Melody, resurfaced. Melody's insecurities led to accusations of an affair between Valerie and Caveman. These accusations enraged Valerie and has caused her to pull out of the reunion tour.
Alexander, their manager, says refunds will be issued if the tour can not be righted. He says he is hopeful Josie can talk to her band mates and come to some sort of resolution. Josie could not be reached for comment.
