Check out the full statement from the group below:
Reflecting on the past 6 years since we started on X Factor, we’ve realized just how far we’ve come and we appreciate everything so much more now than ever. We really had one hell of a memorable journey together and can’t begin to express our gratitude to y’all for coming along with us on this wild ride!
After six years going hard, non-stop, we also realize that in order to stay authentic to ourselves and to you, we do need to take some time for now to go on a hiatus from Fifth Harmony in order to pursue solo endeavors.
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. In doing this we are allowing ourselves to gain new experiences, strengths and perspectives that we can bring back to our Fifth Harmony family.
To our Harmonizers, thank you for everything we have been able to build as Fifth Harmony. With your love and encouragement we will continue to build on ourselves, support one another in everything we do, and keep making you proud, each other proud and ourselves proud.
We do have some upcoming shows through the end of the year which will still happen as planned, and we can’t wait!
All our love from the bottom of our hearts == Dinah Jane, Lauren, Normani and Ally.
