Popular Kiwi reggae band Tomorrow People has parted ways with a member just weeks ahead of a New Zealand-wide tour.

In a statement on Facebook band members said they were shocked to learn of an "alleged incident" that had happened on Saturday involving one of their members - and said they do not condone "domestic violence".

"The remaining members and management of TP have agreed that it's best to part ways with this person, so he can focus on these personal matters," they said.

It was a "huge shock" and the remaining members were "still coming to terms with it all", the band said.


"Please note that this matter is being dealt with through the appropriate channels ... we are fully committed to ensuring that both parties involved are given the appropriate support that they need."

They added they "did not condone any domestic violence".

The news of an impending split follows allegations made on social media from a woman who said she was the man's former partner.

Tomorrow People have a New Zealand tour planned for May and June.

Band leader and manager Tana Tupai said: "At this stage the intent is [for the tour] still to go ahead but obviously there are things we need to go through as a team."
