*Well, it’s a wrap for “R&B Divas Atlanta.”

At least that’s what Jawn Murray’s AlwaysAlist is reporting. Murray says that on Tuesday afternoon (01-13-15), several members of the cast were notified that the show was officially cancelled. The story also noted that last week, at the Television Critics Association in Los Angeles, TV One’s new President, Brad Siegel, did not present “R&B Divas Atlanta” as one of the returning series.

The situation is also kinda messy because of litigation surrounding the “R&B Divas” franchise. Nicci Gilbert, former executive and creator of the show filed a lawsuit about the spin-off “Hollywood Divas.” We’ve also learned that there could also be additional litigation from the existing executive producers, who were initially told that “Hollywood Divas” was not a spin-off of “R&B Divas,” but then the network released a press announcement calling it a spin-off.

“R&B Divas Atlanta” came to be in 2012. The original cast members were Faith Evans, Nicci Gilbert, Syleena Johnson, Keke Wyatt and Monifah Carter. Angie Stone joined the cast in season two and appeared for two seasons. Additionally, Xscape member LaTocha Scott, original Destiny’s Child member LaTavia Roberson and former 702 lead singer Meelah Williams each appeared for one season.

AlwaysAList says it reached out to TV One, but the network would not confirm the cancellation. However, a spokesperson did reply with this message via email:

“Both ‘R&B Divas’’ series are important to TV One and at this time, the network has made no definitive decision as to the future of ‘R&B Divas Atlant.,’”
