EARLIER // DECEMBER 18:
Fifth Harmony announces Camila is no longer a member of Fifth Harmony.
It’s a classic move we’re pretty accustomed to from pop groups these days. After a year of flexing her solo skills on a few duets, the 19-year-old is moving on from the group that made her famous.
Fifth Harmony have just announced formally on Twitter that Cabello’s representatives notified the group of her official exit. Ouch:

Camila has already been unfollowed and removed from the group’s Twitter bio…
5H has been plagued by rumors of in-fighting and rivalry, as Cabello was constantly framed as the breakout solo star. While Lauren and Normani have also made solo moves, Cabello has so far released two solo efforts – the Shawn Mendes duet I Know What You Did Last Summer and the Machine Gun Kelly track “Bad Things”, which is currently a top ten hit.
Fifth Harmony were formed on the US version of The X Factor in 2012. They finished third and have had a string of successful singles since then, including Worth It, Work From Home and Sledgehammer. Remaining members Lauren, Normani, Ally and Dinah will continue on as a four piece.
