*Danity Kane – the girl group created by Diddy on his MTV reality show “Making the Band,” and later disbanded – has decided to reunite without his blessing, according to TMZ.

Four original members of the group — Aubrey O’Day, Shannon Bex, Dawn Richard, and Aundrea Fimbres – went out to lunch today in L.A. with a new manager to discuss the reunion, which TMZ reports will include a new album and tour.

When TMZ asked the ladies if Diddy was involved this time around, their response was, “Who’s that?” [Scroll down to watch.]

Diddy created the group in 2005 during “Making the Band 3” and later signed them to Bad Boy Records. In 2009, Diddy fired the entire group (with the exception of Dawn Richard).

It’s unclear who really owns the name “Danity Kane,” but the girls told TMZ they plan to use it moving forward.
