Posted By on January 6, 2010

    Hit producer slash rapper slash singer Pharrell Williams has reportedly decided to drop Rhea, the female singer, from his rap slash rock group N.E.R.D., according to multiple reports. Although there hasn't been an official statement released, the website Bossip is reporting that Rhea was kicked out of the group "because they didn't think her sound matched with N.E.R.D.'s style, which I don't understand, because she never really did. Her sleeping around was also a problem." The source for Bossip confirmed that although Rhea claims to be in her twenties, she is actually thirty-two. [Rhea Sings On Webcam – Watch Here]

    In related news, just last October Pharrell confirmed that Rhea was added to N.E.R.D. "Musically, we're just somewhere else [with her]," Pharrell said in an interview. "The music is now very 3-D. It's something you have to hear. But you'll see. We're definitely somewhere else. I want to leave that impact moment for when you purchase your download and you purchase your CD. The music is very three-dimensional. We're just really excited. We feel like N.E.R.D. has always been the punks of hip-hop and the outcasts of alternative music — just a little different. But this time, we're taking no prisoners…Now you have this little Tinkerbell that's just stepped in and has been amazing…It's made it a fun process. We can go in so many more directions, because we have the vocal support." [Ex N.E.R.D. Singer Rhea – Sings – Listen/Watch Here]
