Fans were shocked to read on the group’s Twitter feed that Camila Cabello would be leaving the group. This news broke on Sunday. Silet until now, Cabello has a rather different spin on the story. “I was shocked to read the statement the Fifth Harmony account posted without my knowing,” She said in her tweet. “The girls were aware of my feelings through the long, much needed conversations about the future that we had during tour.

Saying that they were just informed through my representatives that I was ‘leaving the group’ is simply not true. Just like the other girls said in their statement about their plans, I had also planned to continue with my own solo endeavors in the new year but I did not intend to end things with Fifth Harmony this way. “As sad as it is to see this chapter ending this way, I will continue to root them all on as individuals and as a group, I wish nothing but the best for them, all the success in the world and true happiness.”

There has been much speculation and rumour since the news first came out. It is clear that the relationship has been on the rocks for some time. They even tried to enlist the help of L.A. Reid. Head of Epic Records to try and intervene and mend the relationship of the group’s members. Sadly, Cabello was a no show for this meeting. Fifth Harmony formed back in 2012 after the five members were put together in a group by Cowell on the American X Factors second season.

They have released two top 5 albums they also had a top five Billboard Hot 100 hit (“Work From Home”). At the same time Cabello has enjoyed success without the group with the top 20 song “I Know What You Did Last Summer” with Shawn Mendes as well as her latest hit with Machine Gun Kelly “Bad Things,” which made the Hot 100 top 10 last week. Her statement makes for some interesting reading and puts a whole new perspective on her departure.

It starts: When I turned 15, I had the blessing of being put into a group with four very talented girls. We were 5 strangers that weren’t even aware of each other’s existence that were given a shot at one dream together. It’s been almost 5 years and the most important chapter of my life thus far. I am so proud of everything we’ve achieved together as a group and will always be proud of being a part of it. The remaining group members intend to go one without her.
