The drag queen “girl” group DWV, which included Detox, Willam Belli and Vicky Vox, has broken up. Detox and Willam have taken to Reddit and their social media profiles to share their frustration and discontent with each other.
@IheartCherilynS between abortions, wifi and lip tar, it was just time. Y'know before it got into Martin & Lewis territory.

Willam chimed in to the Reddit thread after a user said that a cryptic Facebook status shared by Detox seemed to be directed at Willam. Detox’s message read “Bearded snakes on the grass will always bite you in the ass. There’s a reason so many people hate working with you….”
Willam responded on Reddit to the possibility of it being about him by saying, “seems to be? I think it’s pretty clear. fuck. you don’t have to be inspector fuckin gadget to see that. lol. WILLAM p.s. she can state whatever she wants publicly. I’m cool. Don’t care. Personally, I am cool with her.”
Two hours after Detox’s Facebook status, Willam took to Facebook and posted another cryptic message that said, “Say my name, say my name. When no one is around you say baby i love you if you aint running game. Say my name, say my name…. We all know how they ended up, don’t we ;)”
Willam also addressed the issue by answering a recent Tumblr question asked by user ‘byoot-iful’. The question asked “What made you all decided to go separate for a while as the famous Vicky Vox once said ‘you 3 shit gold but solo you still shit gold just not as much gold?'” Willam responded by saying:
[quote]We never planned stuff really and we just don’t have anything coming up. We were just friends putting songs out who then turned into DWV. I would think of something and then we’d round up and do it (exception- Chow Down we all thought of and Gaycation was De’s idea but we all wrote). We no longer have time to make stuff happen like we once did. That’s the reality of it. I think when people paid us to be the supergroup DWV for their own products, the ending result video wasn’t as whoreganic and fun as what we were known for.The last two years have been a whirlwind of unexpectedness that I wouldn’t trade for anything but I am looking forward to dealing with one tranimal instead of three for a while professionally. It’s just less variables and I’m a creative despot.”[/quote]
Shortly after Detox and Willam’s cryptic Facebook messages, Vicky chimed in about the breakup by answering a question on Twitter about the break up.
@Frankistarr it was fun for a while. We are finishing our gigs and I'm going on my way.

The tension between the group has been going on for a while and it seems that they may have been splitting up since April. On Tumblr, Willam alluded to the fact that Vicky would be working on solo projects by saying “No new music on the way from DWV at the moment. Vicky has some solo stuff going on and so do I.”
Late last month, Detox also complained about being pigeonholed into DWV:
Remember when I was a very popular and fun performer before I was pigeonholed into the "D" from "DWV"?!

According to Detox, DWV will still be finishing up their currently scheduled performances.
@JohnWarner3 of course!

If you’re sad about the breakup, Willam’s got some advice for you:
“Just breathe deep and push out like you’re taking a shit.”
‘Boy is a Bottom’ is the group’s most viewed single, which currently has nearly 14 million views on YouTube.
