It’s no secret that singing group Fifth Harmony didn’t end things on the best of terms when Camila Cabello decided to leave the group in 2016, but the singer has plenty to say following her departure.

The Fifth Harmony break up drama started Dec. 19 when the group’s official social media accounts announced that Cabello’s team informed them one day prior that she would no longer be continuing on with the group.

The singer responded admitting that she was caught off guard by the announcement. “I was shocked to read the statement the Fifth Harmony account posted without my knowing,” Cabello wrote in a lengthy statement found on her Twitter account.

The “Bad Things” singer insisted that her group members consisting of Dinah Jane Hansen, Normani Kordei, Ally Brooke Hernandez and Lauren Jauregui were well aware of her feelings about ending her relationship with the group after having several long conversations about the matter. “Saying they were just informed by my representatives that I was ‘leaving the group’ is simply not true,” Cabello wrote in her statement.

However, the four remaining members of the group responded by calling the singer out for supplying the public with false information. “Over the past several months we have consistently made every effort to sit down and discuss the future of Fifth Harmony with Camila,” the group wrote in a statement.

The ladies alleged that they tried several times to reach out to Cabello by calling group meetings, group counseling and even asking L.A. Reid and their record label to step in, but Cabello refused to negotiate. On her part, the singer never responded to the allegations.

The following month, Fifth Harmony shared new photos of the four remaining members of the group. As a joke, talk show host Ellen DeGeneres photoshopped herself into the picture rounding out the group as the unofficial fifth member. 

Cabello found humor in the tweet and laughed off the digitally altered photo on Jan. 7. “Man!! replaced so soon!! Ellen, you were always a better dancer than me anyway,” tweeted in response to the photo.

The singer was later interviewed by Lena Dunham for a piece published to Lenny Letter on Jan.11. During the chat, Cabello mentioned that she felt sexualized during her time in Fifth Harmony. “Especially with being a girl group, there’s been a lot of times where people have tried to sexualize us to just get more attention. Unfortunately, sex sells,” the songstress explained.

Cabello revealed that there were times where she had to stand up for herself if things got too racy. “There’s definitely been times where there’s stuff that I have not been comfortable with and I’ve had to put my foot down.”

The singer noted she wasn’t condemning sexuality, but insisted it was a choice that you can share if you’re comfortable. “If you want to share that with people, that’s amazing. I love that. Look at Rihanna. She’s so sexy. She comes from Planet Sexy. I worship her. I really, really do,” she stated.

Now that she is on her own, the songstress admitted that she is still growing as a person and coming into her own sexuality. “I think the thing that I would say to young women is, if you’re not ready for it, put your foot down,” she said.

The remaining members of Fifth Harmony are expected to perform at the People’s Choice Awards on Wednesday at 9 p.m. EST on CBS.​
