The 19-year-old singer – who made up one fifth of the girl group alongside Ally Brooke, Normani Kordei, Dinah Jane and Lauren Jauregui – has left the band after almost five years together, and the ‘Work From Home’ hitmakers were informed of Camila’s departure through her representative.
The group – who were formed on ‘The X Factor USA’ in 2012 – announced the news on their social media account, which saw them share a photograph of a statement declaring the information on the photo-sharing site on Monday morning (19.12.16).
The post read: “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.
“You Harmonizers have been there with us since the beginning, you’ve supported us, and with your love and support, we will continue on. That being said, we are excited to announce that we will be moving forward with the four of us- Ally Brooke, Normani Kordei, Dinah Jane and Lauren Jauregui for our fans. We are four strong, committed women who will continue with Fifth Harmony as well as our solo endeavors. (sic).”
Although the remaining four band members have hinted Camila didn’t directly inform them she was planning to leave, they appear to hold no bad blood towards the brunette beauty.
And the group have vowed to continue to work together to produce great music in the New Year and are “excited” for their future even it is without the brunette beauty.
They added: “We are excited for our future, and we can’t wait for what the new year brings. Harmonizers, we are in this together. We love you with all of our heart.”
Meanwhile, Camila has remained quiet on her personal social media account about her departure.
