As we reported here, Sugababes founding member Mutya Buena has indeed left the band.
The 20-year-old singer (pictured), a part of the band for seven years if certain reports are to be believed (since she was 13... what?), felt that she was unable to commit to the group for another 12 months.
Sugababes have so far achieved four number one singles, and Buena had her first child in March of 2005. She'll be replaced by a new member - not the first time the group has seen a founder member replaced - within the next 24 hours. Place your bets, now.
