Camila Cabello has officially departed Fifth Harmony to pursue a solo career. Cabello had been hinting at going solo long before her Machine Gun Kelly collaboration “Bad Things” soared to No. 10 on the Hot 100 chart.
#FourthHarmony was trending worldwide less than an hour after her departure was made official, as well as speculation on Cabello’s solo prospects. There were a ton of appreciation posts, as the iteration of the group that lasted four-and-a-half years came to an end.
On Sunday, the band released a statement explained they were shocked by Camila’s decision to quit, which was delivered through her management. But on Monday, Camila returned with her side of the story on Twitter. According to the Camila’s statement, ‘The girls were aware of my feelings… and saying that they were just informed through my representatives that I was “leaving the group” is simply not true.’
The remaining four ladies of Fifth Harmony are setting the record straight once and for all on Camila Cabello’s departure. Almost exactly 24 hours after news broke that the singer would be leaving the girl group, Ally Brooke, Dinah Jane Hansen, Lauren Jauregui and Normani Kordei penned a lengthy letter on Instagram explaining their side of the events.
