Last month The Sun revealed that a split was on the cards after their record label Epic focused more on the success of former bandmate Camila Cabello than theirs. The group members - Dinah Jane, Normani, Ally Brooke, and Lauren Jauregui - have made a decision to disband the beloved 5H in order to pursue "solo endeavors". Between their mutual penchants for massive collaborations across genres, their similar industry foundations (both are signed to Sony Music Group subsidiaries), the parallel circumstances of Camila Cabello and Zayn Malik's departures from each group and the staying power of their particular forays in pop, this hiatus is just another reminder that One Direction and Fifth Harmony continue on almost identical trajectories.
On Twitter the band wrote: "We've had one hell of a memorable journey together and can't begin to express our gratitude to y'all for coming along with us on this wild journey". The day after, group member Normani Kordei released her first solo single, further fueling the rumors. Do you think the same thing will happen with Fifth Harmony?
"To our Harmonizers, thank you for everything we have been able to build as Fifth Harmony", the group's statement concludes.
At the time, the remaining members of Fifth Harmony maintained that while they were interested in solo projects, they wouldn't be breaking up any time soon.
A fifth member of the group, Camila Cabello, left the group in 2016 and has since pursued a solo career.
Fifth Harmony still has several performances scheduled, which they plan to perform despite the hiatus news.
The girl group, who have been together for six years, shared a statement online saying they are temporarily splitting to pursue solo projects. Oh, and let's not forget about Camila Cabello's 2016 dramatic exit from the girl group.
Fifth Harmony has not responded to the hysteria.
While we don't know for sure if they will actually get back together, a lot of fans predicted the move.
