Dawn Robinson spent most of her career singing in the group En Vogue, but according to a judge her En Vogue days are over. Dawn Robinson and Maxine Jones have been stripped of their En Vogue titles and are no longer allowed to promote themselves as part of said singing group. The name En Vogue officially belongs to Cindy Herron and Terry Ellis. Now Maxine and Dawn will have to tour as the Singers Formerly of That Girl Group.


I guess business is business, even when it’s not fair. This now gives Cindy and Terry the right to add “replacements”, if they so choose. Get the details when you continue:

According to legal docs, a judge granted “EV” founding members Cindy Herron and Terry Ellis the exclusive right to use the name “En Vogue” while performing and touring … after a long, drawn-out legal battle with former bandmates Maxine Jones and Dawn Robinson.

Here’s what happened … Cindy and Terry sued Maxine and Dawn for the name plus $1 MILLION in damages back in 2012. They claimed M & D were illegally touring under the “EV” name after the band broke up … but had no right, since C&T owned the LLC.

The judge recently sided with Cindy and Terry — giving them the name — but said the duo failed to prove damages, and were awarded no money.  {via TMZ}
