It has been a few months since Fifth Harmony announced that Camila Cabello would be leaving the group, but the 19-year-old singer admits that her strained relationship with her former bandmates is still “hard” to talk about.
“I was always super open [that] I couldn’t just sing other people’s words and be totally happy with that,” Cabello tells Billboard magazine. “You have to follow and honor that inner voice. I always encouraged the girls to do the same.”
Cabello admits that she hasn’t spoken to Ally Brooke, Normani Kordei, Dinah Jane or Lauren Jauregui since leaving Fifth Harmony, though she has tried to reach out. “I don’t want to get into the details of that, because it was really intense and it’s hard for me to talk about,” she explains. “It makes me sad.”
“I hoped that it would be a peaceful turning of the page and we would root for each other,” she adds. “But I only got love for them.”
Cabello’s main focus is on launching her solo career, but as for her love life, she tells Billboard that she doesn’t “have anything going on right now,” though she did give her phone number to an Uber driver. “We were actually talking about [La La Land] and he was like, ‘I just came out of a relationship.’ He just sounded like he was a hopeless romantic,” she shares. “And I was like, ‘You know what? I’ll get his number.’ He never texted me back. I don’t know. Maybe it didn’t go through.”
In another recent interview, Cabello talked about getting relationship advice from her pal, Taylor Swift, and also opened up about experiencing heartache and instances of unrequited love. Check it out:
