    The legal battle of En Vogue has come to an end and one R&B diva is on the losing side of that fight.

    When En Vogue broke up, being split down the middle, there was some dispute over which half of the group really owned the name and had legal access to the bank account. Both sides were trying to use it, but that got a little confusing, so the ladies took it to court.

    TMZ.com reports that a ruling has been finalized and Terry Ellis and Cindy Herron have won the legal rights to the name En Vogue. They argued that since they had the group’s bank account in their names and owned the LLC, they were the only ones that should be allowed to perform under the name, and apparently the courts agreed.

    No damages have been awarded.

    This means that Maxine Jones and Dawn Robinson, who will be on “R&B Divas: LA,” are no longer part of the group. Of course, Dawn may have seen this coming because TV One said that Dawn will be trying to form a new group on “R&B Divas: LA,” when the show begins.
