Camila Cabello has issued her own statement about her highly publicized exit from Fifth Harmony, and she is saying that her group mates were well aware of her plans to go solo!
“I was shocked to read the statement the Fifth Harmony account posted without my knowing,” the 19-year-old singer wrote in a lengthy post on social media Monday afternoon. “The girls were aware of my feelings through the long, much needed conversations about the future that we had during our tour. 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 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.”
“Just as I said to them during those conversations, and just like I try to encourage you guys, I want to lead by example when I say to each of you guys to be courageous in the pursuit of what makes your heart pound and what makes you come alive with purpose. Our happiness is our own responsibility,” the statement continues. “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.”
