If you didn’t know or have heard by now, but the 6 members of New Edition are having some internal STRIFE.  This riff has causes 4 of the members to embark on their own.  Ronnie DeVoe, Mike Bivins, Ricky Bell and Bobby Brown are touring collectively as ‘RBRM’. Some have been wondering why all 6 members are not touring together and there has been a lot of speculation and innuendo and rumors about the STRIFE between the FELLOWS. ‘RBRM’ went on ‘The Breakfast Club’ to air out some of their dirty laundry. They let it be known that there are some ISSUES amongst the guys that is keeping all 6 from touring together. They also revealed among a lot of other stuff, that Ralph Tresvant and Johnny Gill actually OWN the ‘NEW EDITION’ name and no one else cam use it because it is TRADEMARKED by THEM. So of course this has the other 4 members a bit IN THEIR FEELINGS…some even feel that Gill shouldn’t have any ownership in the name because he was ADDED well after the group was founded and had made a name for themselves… Check the FULL INTERVIEW!
