Good News — The Fifth Harmony Girls Are Still Friends Despite Hiatus
The moment we’ve been prepared for — but absolutely dreading — for several months now happened yesterday. The girls of Fifth Harmony announced that after six years of working together, the group is going on an indefinite hiatus so they can “pursue solo endeavors.” We know…heartbreaking.
“After six years going hard, non-stop, we also realized 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,” Ally Brooke, Lauren Jauregui, Normani Kordei and Dinah Jane wrote in a statement posted to Twitter.

They continued, “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.”
While 5H’s decision to take a break was seemingly planned for a long time, there’s always a question if the members of the group decided to go their separate ways because of something more dramatic. But according to Variety, this is not the case at all.
A source close to the group explains that there is “no disharmony” among the girls and they’re still best friends even though they’re going to be working on solo careers.
The girls promised they’ll use the “new experiences, strengths and perspectives” they learn as they branch out on their own to eventually come back to the group better than ever. But who knows — bands that go on hiatus don’t have the best record of getting back together, ya know?
