Camila Cabello is Shocked by the Statement

All this news came as a total shock to Cabello. Camila Cabello’s Instagram account now shows a lengthy note, where the singer expresses her utter shock and confusion at the decision. She began the post with a heartwarming reflection saying, “It’s been almost five years and the most important chapter of my life this 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.” But the note quickly made a nightmarish turn when she added, “I was shocked to read the statement the Fifth Harmony account posted without my knowing. 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.”

The 19-year-old sensation wrapped up the note expressing her sadness at the end of her chapter with Fifth Harmony, but showed her support for her Harmonizing sisters, wishing them the best in the future. “The memories we’ve made together will last a life time. Now I gotta walk the walk… as scary as it is to take the leap, I am excited and full of joy because I know that no matter what happens, I am following my heart.” Read the entire letter below.

It is sad to see things unfold this way, but we’re hoping the transition will be smooth for both parties. The girls have all shone in their own ways during their time in Fifth Harmony and we wish them the best for their futures!
