Normani Kordei Breaks Silence Following Fifth Harmony’s Hiatus Announcement (Exclusive)

By

Normani Kordei is moving on from Fifth Harmony.

Fifth Harmony announced on Monday that the group is going on an indefinite hiatus in order for the members to work on their solo careers, and on Wednesday night, ET spoke with Kordei at the boohoo.com launch of their newest Spring collection with a sneak preview of the Zendaya Edit collection at The Highlight Room atop the Dream Hotel in Hollywood. Kordei had a message for all the heartbroken fans of the girl group.

"Oh, I love you guys so much and you made it the best time of my life," she told ET's Katie Krause. "I'll never forget it."

Fifth Harmony -- comprised of Kordei, Lauren Jauregui, Dinah Jane and Ally Brooke -- was first formed on season two of the U.S. version of The X Factor. After releasing chart-topping hits like "Worth It" and "Work From Home," the group released a statement to their fans on Monday morning, sharing that they will be going on a break to "pursue solo endeavors." 

They did not note how long the hiatus would go on for or whether they plan to release more music together, but added that they still plan to perform together in some upcoming shows through the end of the year.

“After six years going hard, non stop, we also realized that in order to stay authentic to ourselves and to you, we do need to take some time for now to go on hiatus from Fifth Harmony in order to pursue solo endeavors,” the statement read. “We are all very excited and grateful to be able to take this time to learn and grow creatively and really find our footing as individuals.”

A source told ET earlier this week that Camila Cabello's early exit in December 2016 wasn't a factor in the decision, and that there's absolutely no bad feelings between Jauregui, Kordei, Jane and Brooke.

“They all decided together that the end of this tour was a natural break and they could use the time to do some solo projects, whether that be albums or something else," the source said. "They’re happy and supportive of each other. There is no drama about this hiatus.”
