Speaking at the National Lottery Stars gala tonight (September 5), Ewen insisted that Sugababes have indeed split up and continuing to claim otherwise is "unfair to fans".
"This is a tricky one because I don't feel comfortable lying, saying we're in the studio recording and we're going to bring music out next year, which seems to be the favoured line," she said. "I think it's unfair to fans and we should be honest.
"The band being over is definitely not my choice. I kind of was unlucky in that I came in to towards the end of the cycle when things naturally came to the end. There was so much drama surrounding the group, I think the music just got lost. I don't like all the drama and the negativity. We kind of fizzled out about two years ago."
Ewen also accepted that the numerous lineup changes "obviously" contributed to the downfall of Sugababes.
"I do think the lineup changes have obviously got to be a factor, you can't get away from it," she said. "I'd be lying if I didn't think the same when I was approached. I was like, 'Is this going to work? Are people going to accept it?'
"But I know it's a brand and the music industry isn't necessarily about making music."
