Nightwish Fire Back Over Firing Claims From Former Singer
Olzon said she believed she was dismissed because she was pregnant with her third child and added she'd been treated the same way previous frontwoman Tarja Turunen had been.
Now the band have addressed specific comments she made in Finnish magazine Me Naiset, describing her claims as "misrepresentation and defamation."
Nightwish say via their website (in Finnish): "This 'one woman against Neanderthals' is an easy to way to take advantage of our history. Anette's departure was not due to pregnancy or illness – we found she was a misfit in our working community." They had more to say.
