Camila Cabello announced her departure from Fifth Harmony on Monday morning, beginning the "breakup" of the band (as Forbes bluntly wrote). And while the rest of the group plans to stick together, there's no denying that 5H has lost one of their harmonies.
However, most fans weren't surprised by the announcement, as Fifth Harmony has been publicly pointing toward their split for over a year. A third album may be on the way, but in past interviews, the band seemed on the same page that they'd eventually go their separate ways.
Click through to see the writing on the wall about Fifth Harmony's fate:
Back in their formative weeks on the X Factor, Fifth Harmony performed Taylor Swift's "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" in front of Simon Cowell, L.A. Reid, Britney Spears and Demi Lovato. In her critique, Lovato said, "Right now, there's only one person doing it for me."
Watch at the end of the clip, when host Khloe Kardashian pushed Lovato to reveal her favorite. Lovato points at Cabello and says, "I think you guys should all learn something from her."
