R&B singer Tank has addressed what recently broke up his supergroup TGT with fellow veteran crooners Tyrese and Ginuwine this week.
Approached by paparazzi this week, Tank pointed the finger at Tyrese for causing the group to split.
“Nope, nope, nope,” Tank said about the group breaking up. “Nope. Tyrese still doesn’t want to split the money equally so we’re going to [have to stop]. We’re done. [laughs] We’re good.” (TMZ)
Tyrese has already responded to Tank’s comments on Instagram.
Initial reports claimed group member Ginuwine wanted to ditch TGT instead of going into production for another album.
Sources close to TGT tell us the plan was for Tyrese, Ginuwine and Tank to hit the studio early next year to record their second album — but just a few days ago, Ginuwine told them he wanted out of the group. We’re told he offered no explanation for his departure, and Tyrese and Tank were especially saddened by it because they owe their record label, Atlantic, two more albums — and it wasn’t easy to score that deal.

The music veterans went at each other on Instagram in mid-December.
Instead of feeding into the situation, Tyrese acknowledged the media’s wandering eyes.
Back in summer 2013, TGT came together for their first album.
Six years have elapsed since Tyrese, Ginuwine and Tank conceived the idea of teaming up as TGT. But the R&B supergroup isn’t wasting any more time. This week, TGT announced its Atlantic debut album, “3 Kings,” will arrive at retail on Aug. 20. In fact, the trio has already hit the road with its “3 Kings” Tour. (Billboard)
