Fifth Harmony announced during the last days of 2016 that Camila Cabello is out of the group. Currently, the group released their first photo as a quartet and it looks like the female girl band is ready for 2017 even without the Latina member.
Dec.19- this was the date when the X Factor founded group announced that Cabello is indeed out of the group. On the other hand, the estranged member released a statement via social media.
“After 4 and a half years of being together, we have been informed via her representative that Camila has decided to leave Fifth Harmony. We wish her well,” quotes Entertainment Weekly.
Cabello responded to the shocking revelation, stating that she was not aware of the announcement. Some parts of her Twitter message includes:
“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.”

There have been lots of speculation about Cabello going solo. Some of the Harmonizers alleged that she was calculating her exit to pursue a solo career.
First, she made a collaboration with the Canadian singer Shawn Mendes for the song I Know What You Did Last Summer. Then, she worked with Machine Gun Kelly as well for the single Bad Things.
Sources from People also said that the girls and Cabello haven’t got along after the departure. The girls were not ready as well; stating that they want to have a group therapy but Cabello won’t participate.
As bad as it may appear, it looks like the remaining members of Fifth Harmony will continue to make music as a group. Indeed, the group officially released their very first photo as a quartet.
