When five became four! Camila Cabello has quit Fifth Harmony, but according to the girl group’s official statement, she didn’t tell them in person.
In a statement released on Twitter on Sunday, December 18, the remaining members of the group confirmed the 19-year-old was leaving the band, but said they’d heard about her departure through her spokesperson.
“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,” they wrote.
“You Harmonizers have been there with us since the beginning, you’ve supported us, you’ve rejoiced and cried with us, you’ve grown with us, and with your love and support, we will continue on.”
The lengthy statement continued: “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. We are four strong, committed women who will continue with Fifth Harmony, as well as our solo endeavors.”

They concluded: “We are excited for our future, and we can’t wait for what the new year brings. Harmonizers, we are in this together. We love you with all of our hearts. Love Ally, Normani, Dinah and Lauren.”
As Us Weekly previously reported, in September Cabello left a Fifth Harmony concert in St. Louis early, citing “anxiety.”
“Hi Missouri, sorry I couldn’t finish the set last night,” the singer wrote on Snapchat after the show. “Was having too much anxiety and couldn’t finish it. I love u. I’m truly sorry.”
Feud and split rumors have been swirling around Fifth Harmony for months, particularly after Cabello teamed up with music producer Benny Blanco earlier this year for a solo song.
