Ex-Fifth Harmony member Camilla Cabello speaks on her depature from the all girl group, stating that being in the group wasn’t the maximum expression of herself as an individual..
Back in December the other members confirmed that Cabello quit the group, releasing a statement on Twitter about the departure:
“We were truly hurt. We’ve been together for almost five years, been through ups and downs,” the remaining members later wrote online. “While this isn’t the way any one of us would have wanted this chapter in our lives to have ended, we had to begin to formulate a plan and constructive path for Fifth Harmony to move forward, beyond Camila.”
Cabello is on the cover of the March issue of Seventeen Magazine and she explains why she left:
“Fifth Harmony wasn’t the maximum expression of me individually,” she says in Seventeen. My fans are really going to know me from the music I’m writing. My goal is to be brave and open up my soul.”
Cabello responded to her former bandmates’ announcement, posting on social media: “The girls were aware of my feelings through the long, much needed conversations about the future that we had during our tour … 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.”
