Camila Cabello responds to Fifth Harmony's statement about her leaving the band
She said she is shocked by the statement.
Earlier today Fifth Harmony posted a statement to the band's twitter account which announced that Camila Cabello was leaving the group.
“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.'' part of it said.
However, Camila has released a new statement in which she slams the remaining members of the group for implying that they had not already known for some time that she was leaving, claiming that they had just been informed by representatives.
''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," She said as part on a lengthy statement.
"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." Camila said.
The singer seems annoyed by the way her leaving was handled by the other girls but adds in her statements that she does have big solo plans.
''Next year I will be working on my own music and giving you a big chunk of my heart. To our amazing fans, I will always be so thankful for the opportunities being in this group has given to me. I am even more thankful for the times we've gone to get frozen yogurt together and talk about music, for the times we've locked eyes during a lyric, for the hugs that put pieces back together in both of us, for more love than I can put into words, and for showing me the way to myself. You took 5 ordinary girls and made their dreams come true, and together, us and you guys, we've written an amazing story - of girls from all different cultures, backgrounds, colors, shapes, languages, music tastes, all going for one dream - a dream I will never forget. The memories we've made together will last a lifetime. Now I gotta walk the walk. I have always encouraged you to be fearless, to live your life in the name of love and to do what makes you happy...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. I hope to see you on my journey.''
