Say it ain’t so! Fifth Harmony shocked us all by announcing Camila Cabello would be leaving the group on Dec. 19, and Twitter immediately erupted with devastated fans sharing their thoughts. As expected, Harmonizers are all as heartbroken as we are!
Less than a half hour after it was revealed that Camila Cabello, 19, would no longer be part of Fifth Harmony, her name was already the top trending topic on Twitter. Although it’s been long-rumored that she would be the first to leave the group, it was certainly an unexpected bombshell announcement when the girl group posted the news on its Facebook page Dec. 19, and us Harmonizers are totally reeling about it.

One of the most common reactions seems to be fans wondering whether or not the band will change its name: After all, they’re called Fifth Harmony because there’s FIVE members! Plus, there’s the obvious comparisons to Zayn Mailk, 23, leaving One Direction to pursue a solo career, too.
Camila has already done work solo — she’s currently featured on one of the moment’s hottest songs, “Bad Things,” and also recorded a duet with Shawn Mendes last year. However, she has consistently insisted that her side projects didn’t mean her time in 5H was over, making this news even more shocking.
Sadly, it seems like this didn’t all go down in the best way either. The other four girls explained in their Facebook post that they didn’t even find out about Camila’s decision from her, they found out after being contact by her “representatives”! Way harsh. But, even without their fifth girl, Ally, Normani, Lauren and Dinah Jane assured their Harmonizers that they would be moving forward as a foursome, while also working on solo careers of their own. We are so devastated over all this!
HollywoodLifers, what do you think about Camila leaving Fifth Harmony? Did you ever think this would happen?
