UPDATE 20/12/16: Camila Cabello has broken her silence following her split from Fifth Harmony.
ORIGINAL STORY: Alongside Little Mix, US act Fifth Harmony are one of the biggest girl bands in the world which is why it has come as a surprise to fans that one of the members is leaving.
The group has announced that Camila Cabello is leaving in a statement that sounds very unfriendly.
The four remaining girls took to social media to share the statement saying, “After four and a half years of being together, we have been informed via her representative that Camila has decided to leave Fifth Harmony.”
“We wish her well.”
The girls have decided to continue to make music as Fifth Harmony despite her departure writing, “We are four strong, committed women who will continue with Fifth Harmony as well as our solo endeavours.”
It’s somewhat of a strange decision given that the group are at the height of their popularity. Their 2016 single Work From Home is their highest charting ever all around the world and their most recent album 7/27 cracked the top 10 in Australia, the UK and the US.
Cabello has recently experienced a little bit of solo success herself, scoring a top 10 hit in the US featuring on Machine Gun Kelly’s Bad Things.
It remains to be seen whether they’ll stick with the name Fifth Harmony now that there are only four.
