The release of Doggy’s Angels’ debut album led to a lawsuit by Columbia Pictures who claimed that the trio’s album cover infringed on their “Charlie’s Angels” movie franchise.

The trio’s record label, TVT Records responded by removing the cover image & promotional artwork and renamed the trio “Tha Angels,” but by 2002, they had disbanded.

In 2005, Chan Gaines sued the record label for $100 million in royalties for her performances with the trio. The suit was settled a year later.

These days, Chan Gaines appears to work as a fashion designer with her clothing line called Cyndarella Coutoure while Kim Proby and Kola Marion have their own solo music careers.
