Following Camila Cabello’sstatement on leaving Fifth Harmony on Monday, a source close to the group says that the singer’s claims about discussing her future with her fellow 5H members were “completely untrue.”
"The girls were aware of my feelings through the long, much-needed conversations about the future that we had during tour,” Cabello said in her statement, following the group’s announcement Sunday night. “Saying that they were just informed through my representatives that I was 'leaving the group' is simply not true."
However, the source tells ET that those conversations “never happened.”
“There was never an effort from Camila to meet with the girls about their future as a group,” the source added. “For the past year, the other four girls have been begging Camila for a meeting to discuss their future...Camila refused to meet.”
The source also claims that the remaining four members of 5H -- Lauren Jauregui, Ally Brooke Hernandez, Normani Kordei and Dinah Jane -- tried to meet with Cabello in “group therapy” as well as in meetings with Epic Records head L.A. Reid, but she was always a no-show.
According to the source, in the middle of November, Cabello’s manager, Roger Gold, told Fifth Harmony management that the group’s Dec. 18 performance -- at Y100's Jingle Ball in Sunrise, Florida -- would be her last performance and day with the group.
“The four girls just want the truth out there,” the source adds, reiterating 5H’s original statement that they will continue on as a four-person group without Cabello. “They want to move on and stay positive… they want to do what they can to honor their fans and move forward. This has been the best year of their career and they will stay strong together.”
