In fact, some fans on social media have been talking about this for years. (Yes, years.)
No one knew exactly when it would be announced (although some guesses were close), but the release of “Bad Things” with Machine Gun Kelly was definitely an early indicator.
In case you missed it, see photos from the group’s final performance together.
Check out some tweets of fans predicting Camila‘s exit from 5H long ago:

My biggest fear isn't Camila going solo it's that if she goes solo ot4 might not return and just call it all quits
