Camila Cabello is leaving Fifth Harmony after four-and-a-half years, and had her representatives break the news to the rest of the girls.
“After 4 and a half years of being together, we have been informed via her representatives that Camila has decided to leave Fifth Harmony. We wish her well,” the group posted on Instagram on Sunday.
“That being said, we are excited to announce that we will be moving forward with the four of us — Ally Brooke, Normani Kordei, Dinah Jane and Lauren Jauregui for our fans,” the post continued.
Cabello has not yet posted about her exit on her social media, although she posted a photo with the caption, “I’ll only have you if you’re sweeter than my solitude.”
In September of 2015, Cabello said in a Billboard interview that she expected Fifth Harmony to eventually break up.
“We’d be lying if we all said this is a picture-perfect thing, like we all completely agreed on the album track list and what the sound and the music-video treatment would be like, which usually happens in bands who grew up together. But for manufactured bands, it’s harder,” she said.
Fifth Harmony was formed in 2012 on the second season of “The X Factor.” Their debut single was titled “Miss Movin’ On,” while their debut EP was titled “Better Together” (2013). Their first album, “Reflection,” included platinum singles “Boss,” “Sledgehammer” and “Worth It,” with their most recent song being “Work from Home.”
