Fifth Harmony just announced on Twitter that Camila Cabello will be leaving the band. The girl group released the statement on social media hours after they performed together at Y100's Jingle Ball in Sunrise, FL.

Camila's departure might not come as a surprise to some Harmonizers who recognized the success of her two solo songs, "Bad Things" and "I Know What You Did Last Summer."
