Girls Aloud singer Nadine Coyle has not spoken to the rest of the band for months, Nicola Roberts said in a magazine interview.
While the redhead insisted there was no feud between LA-based Coyle and the rest of the group, she told Hello! that they have not heard from her since the autumn.
The band took a year off to pursue solo projects.
Roberts said: “If I’m really honest, we haven’t spoken to Nadine since we did the Coldplay gig at Wembley in September. I talked to the other girls about it on Monday and no, none of us have heard from her. But there’s no feud.”
The time off gave the 24-year-old the chance to have “girlie chats” while visiting the other band members’ houses – Roberts now lives in Weybridge, Surrey.
She said: “You can just go round, curl up in your tracksuit bottoms on the couch and chill and talk about anything and everything. Cheryl and I have decided that next time I go round hers, we’ll recreate the Lady Gaga video for 'Telephone'. Cheryl’s going to be Beyonce and I’ll be Gaga. It’ll be hilarious.”
Roberts, who lives with boyfriend Charlie Fennell, said the women’s partners have to earn the approval of the other band members.
“We’re like that film Meet the Fockers – we have a circle of trust and you have to earn your place in it. I wouldn’t ever want to bring someone in just because I was smitten; lust can glaze your eyes over and you can make poor judgments.”
She also hit out at criticism that she became too thin.
“I am naturally very slim and saying someone is too skinny when they’re naturally slim is just as offensive as saying they’re fat when they’re a bit plumper.”
