Camila Cabello Addresses Rumors That Taylor Swift Made Her Quit 5H

By  | 

When Camila Cabello announced that she had quit Fifth Harmony back in December 2016, it quickly became clear that the circumstances surrounding her departure were not pleasant. Then rumors started swirling that the 21-year-old’s best friend, Taylor Swift, was the one who encouraged her to say goodbye and pursue a solo career and sh*t hit the fan even more. But, according to the “Never Be the Same” singer, this speculation has no validity.

Cam appeared on the The Dan Wootton Interview podcast yesterday and shut the rumors down once and for all.

“Absolutely nobody could ever persuade me to do something,” she explained. “If I don’t want to do something the whole world could be telling me and I won’t do it. And if I do, then the whole world could be telling me to not do it and I’ll do it. I’ve always been that way.”

In fact, when the brunette first heard that people accused Tay of making her leave 5H, she got “annoyed.”

She continued, “It annoyed me that people said that she was encouraging me because I know she probably got a lot of flack for that or a lot of negative criticism for that and that annoys me because I’m really protective over my friends. To be honest with you, she’s never, ever had anything to do with that.”

And if that’s not #BFFGoals, we don’t know what is.

Camila is joining the 28-year-old on her Reputation stadium tour this summer, which she says is “a dream come true.”

Cam wrote on Instagram after the news was announced, “As a fan, I’m going to be singing every song at the top of my lungs. As a friend, it’s a GIANT SLEEPOVER. As the girl who had a Taylor Swift poster in her room when she was 14 and wanted SO BADLY to go to the Speak Now tour (distinctly remember my friends going to school the next day raving about it and me like), I’TS A DREAM.
