Camila Cabello Quits Fifth Harmony, Group Vows to Continue: "We Are in This Together"
And then there were four.
Camilla Cabello has quit Fifth Harmony, the girl group announced in an Instagram post early Monday morning, hours after the group played the final Jingle Ball show of the year in Cabello’s hometown of Miami. However, the remaining members—Normani Kordei, Lauren Juaregui, Dinah Jane, and Ally Brooke—vowed to continue on as a foursome.
“After 4 and a half years of being together, we have been informed via her representatives that Camila has decided to leave Fifth Harmony. We wish her well,” the remaining members wrote to their fans—“Harmonizers”—in the post.
“We are excited to announce that we will be moving forward with the four of us … We are four strong, committed women who will continue with Fifth Harmony as well as our solo endeavors.”
The announcement comes weeks after Cabello, 19, released the music video for her latest solo track “Bad Things,” featuring Machine Gun Kelly.

Months earlier, Cabello abruptly left a St. Louis, Missouri, concert mid-set due to anxiety.
“Hi Missouri, sorry I couldn’t finish the set last night,” she wrote in a September Snapchat after the incident. “Was having too much anxiety and couldn’t finish it … I love u. I’m truly sorry.”
She took to Twitter before the performance to share her exhaustion, writing, “just wanna sleep for 3 days.”
