Fifth Harmony are set to split after their label focuses on former band member Camila Cabello, according to reports.
According to reports label Epic want to ride on the success of Camila and are “fed up” with remaining girls, Ally Brooke, Normani Kordei, Dinah Jane and Lauren Jauregui making diva demands.
Producers noted that Camila’s single Havana spent five weeks at the top of the UK charts while the latest Fifth Harmony album only just limped into number 10.
A music source told The Sun: “Things haven’t been the same since Camila’s departure and everyone has run out of patience with Fifth Harmony.
“Basically, the band feel their label is prioritising Camila and have become hard work behind the scenes.
“They’ve watched how much effort and money has gone into Camila’s career and feel they’ve been used to catapult her into solo stardom.
“Her album received more backing than their last project and they know their days at Epic are numbered.”
In an emotional statement, Fifth Harmony insisted that they were “truly hurt” by the singer’s actions – and even begged her to stay back in December.
“Over the past several months we have consistently made every effort to sit down and discuss the future of Fifth Harmony with Camila,” said the statement.
“We have spent the past year and a half (since her initial solo endeavor) trying to communicate to her and her team all of the reasons why we felt Fifth Harmony deserved at least one more album of her time, given the success of this past year that we’d all worked so hard for.
“We called for group meetings which she refused, we asked L.A. Reid and the label to step in and try to set meetings, which again, she refused. We even went as far as group counseling which she did not show up to.
“So no, after months of rejection from her and her team, these supposed lengthy conversations in fact never happened, although we tried,” they added.
