Ally Brooke Signs Solo Deal, Further Sparking Fifth Harmony Breakup Rumors
Yes, Harmonizers — you read that correctly. Fifth Harmony’s very own Ally Brooke just announced that she signed a solo deal with Larry Rudolph and his company, Maverick/ReignDeer Entertainment. So far, this seems to be a great move for the singer, considering the fact that Larry already manages the girl group as a whole.
In the statement about the solo deal obtained by Variety, Ally expressed how excited she is about her personal career. “Larry is family. I can’t think of anyone I trust more to take care of me and my vision,” the 24-year-old said in her statement. “I now have the best of both worlds with Larry at the helm of Fifth Harmony and, and Larry in my personal career!”
To give you some perspective, Ally getting signed to Maverick/ReignDeer is a HUGE deal because, not only does the company manage 5H, but they also manage the careers of tons of other superstars, including Britney Spears, Pitbull, Aerosmith, and Miley Cyrus. See? We told you it was huge deal!
Even though this is a pretty exciting time in Ally’s life, this news is making many Harmonizers concerned for the future of the group. However, the 24-year-old singer isn’t the first current member to pursue her dreams of going solo. In recent months, all of the girls have been featured on projects outside of the group, and some of them have solo deals as well!
In October of last year, it was announced that Normani signed her own solo deal with S10 Entertainment. It was also reported by Billboard that Lauren Jauregui was allegedly considering switching from Epic to Columbia to release a solo album of her own.
While it’s still unclear at this point what these solo projects and deals mean for Fifth Harmony as a whole, fans of the group are still totally freaking out:

Fifth Harmony better have plans to make an European & USA Tour before breaking up or I won't speak for myself

Hopefully, the girls will release some kind of statement or explanation to calm us all down because we’re on the verge of a breakdown!
