Camila Cabello isn't on speaking terms with the rest of Fifth Harmony, according to the singer herself.
Cabello's exit from Fifth Harmony was not exactly handled with a lot of finesse based on what the public saw. The Fifth Harmony Twitter account announced Cabello's exit In December, noting that the rest of her bandmates were informed via her "representatives" that she was leaving.
This started a back-and-forth between Cabello and the rest of Fifth Harmony on social media, showing that there is clear tension.
Cabello is now on the new cover of Billboard magazine and says in the cover story that she hasn't spoken with the rest of Fifth Harmony since the split, even though she says she tried reaching out.
"I don't want to get into the details of all that, because it was really intense and it's hard for me to talk about. It makes me sad," she admitted.
She also admitted that the exit didn't exactly go as planned, noting that she hoped it would be a "peaceful turning of the page and we would root for each other. But I only got love for them."
Part of Cabello's decision to leave the group was simply to follow her own path and be her own artist, rather than performing what others have written for her.
"I was always super open [that] I couldn't just sing other people's words and be totally happy with that," she said. "You have to follow and honor that inner voice. I always encouraged the girls to do the same."
It's also part of Cabello's DNA, as she explained, "The easiest route would be to shut my mouth, sing the songs, wear the clothes and keep going, you know? I have it in my DNA. The way my mom raised me, it has always been: Don't settle. Jump and hope you grow wings on the way down. I feel alive!"
Cabello is expected to release her debut solo album this year, while Fifth Harmony is expected to release their own new album as well.
