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.
