Ball’s in your court, Camila.
Things are getting awkward.
We never thought of Camila Cabello as a drama queen, but girl what are you doing? The *former* recently released her statement on leaving the girl group and she couldn’t help but throw some major shade at her former bandmates.
But first, let us rewind.
The first remaining members of Fifth Harmony (Fourth Harmony?) – Ally, Normani, Dinah, and Lauren — released a statement announcing Camila’s departure. They claimed,
“We have been informed via her representatives that Camila has decided to leave Fifth Harmony.”
This apparently did not go over well with Camila, however, as she quickly released her own statement and totally slammed the ladies. She wrote on Instagram,
“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 the tour, Saying that they were informed through my representatives that I was ‘leaving the group’ is simply not true.”
Notice the subtle shade?
None-the-less, she insisted that she wishes them well. End of story, right?
Not so fast. Fifth Harmony is not going to let this slide. The ladies then went back to Instagram to post their own response saying,
“The last thing we want to do is engage in a battle of we said, she said, but we’ve let our story play out in press and on social media for too long. So to our Harmonizers, who were care so deeply about, we want you to hear everything from us, unedited, not manipulate, just us, to you.
Over the past several months we have consistently made every effort to sit down and discuss the future of Fifth Harmony with Camila. We have spent the past year and a half (since her initial solo endeavor) trying to communicate to her and her team all the reasons why we felt Fifth Harmony deserved at least one more album of her time, given the success of this past year that we’d all worked so hard for. We called for group meetings which she refused. We even went so far as group counseling which she did not show up to. So no, after months of rejection from her and her team, these supposed lengthy conversations in fact never happened, although we pleaded.”
