MANILA, Philippines – The Mocha Girls has disbanded after 4 of the 5 band members formed a separate  singing group.

Hershey Delas Alas, Bez Lacanlale, Grace Oracion, and Heart de Guzman left lead singer Mocha Uson to form a new group called Girlz Ink.

The announcement was made during the group’s launching Monday night.

Delas Alas, Lacanlale, Oracion and De Guzman denied that professional jealousy and money issues were behind their move to ditch Uson. They maintained that it is about time for them to make their mark in the music scene.

Uson, for her part, merely wished them good luck. As for her career, the sexy singer said she already tapped back-up dancers-singers.

The first time the all-female sexy singing group created a stir in the music scene was when they cried foul after photos of them kissing each other were leaked to the press and landed in a tabloid.

The girls filed a libel complaint against the publication. The complaint was dismissed after both parties reached an agreement.

They also posed nude for men’s magazine Maxim Philippines.
