Belinda Chapple, in her memoir, The Girl in the Band, claims that they were forced to leave the band as Sophie Monk decided to leave. Because she wanted to pursue her career solely. The former member also stated that her heart was completely shattered when she heard that Sophie, Sally, Katie, and Tiffany had separated their paths. She also explained the feeling when the band split. She said that she felt as if she was thrown out of the bus on the road by the whole group, the group that was everything for Belinda. Not only did they throw her, but also continued their journey. 


In a podcast, Belinda also said that all the girls in the band were shocked when they found out that the band was splitting, just to give Sophie a chance so that she could pursue her solo career. She also said that she never thought that things were going to go that way, and one of them would be pursuing a solo career.
Talking about the changes Sophie made. Belinda said that Sophie started to isolate herself from the other group members. She also began to go on solo shoots and used to get the best outfits in film clips.


Former manager’s stance


The band's manager, David Caplice, also gave his stance on this entire situation. He stated that before the Mardi Gras performance in 2002, the girls got into an explosive fight with each other. This fight had adverse effects on the group as it became the reason for the envy and hatred they carried for each other. He further stated that the group could be one of the biggest girl bands in the world if that fight had not occurred. The media asked the girls about the fight which their manager claimed, but they all denied it and said that nothing like that happened.

Bardot was one the biggest girl groups formed in 1999 on a TV reality series. The band was successful and gave bangers like 'Poison.' However, due to their personal clashes, the band disbanded at the beginning of 2002.
