“…And so with an amazing night in São Paulo, tonight was the end of our South American tour. This tour meant so much to me because Latin America has such a special place in my heart – getting to speak to u guys in my native tongue (and also getting to learn Portuguese for these shows everyday hehe) was so fun and made me feel at home,” Camila wrote to the group’s fans on Instagram. “Every time I felt your guys’ love it gave me the energy to give you all I’ve got – it didn’t matter if at any point I was sick or exhausted – seeing your faces gave me all the energy I needed to keep going.”
She continued, “I know so many of you have been saving up your money for such a long time – doing bake sales, working double shifts, running through the streets just to see us at the venue even if you didn’t have tickets. Coming from all different parts of South America to make it to these shows and bring us the sweetest most thoughtful gifts – drawings, music from your countries, paintings, Brazilian, Argentinian, Chilean and Peruvian candy! I don’t take that lightly at all and I am so grateful for all of you guys here. I can’t tell you thank you enough times. You put so much thought into everything and I really appreciate you welcoming us into your cultures and teaching us about them. You are really a beautiful and unforgettable group of people.”
The girls of Fifth Harmony released a lengthy statement defending their bodyguards, who saved them in a scary incident.
“We have been really busy working and making sure that you guys have as amazing of an experience with us as possible,” the statement released on Twitter began. “But we feel like sometimes you guys forget that there are only 5 of us versus the hundreds of you.”
“Our security team is set up and in place to protect us and out privacy when people go beyond normal boundaries. We’ve seen all over Twitter outrage over one of our security guards attacking and trying to inappropriately touch one of our fans and we wanted to put out a statement calling out this lie,” the statement continued. “We were there. The girl tried to come to Lauren and Dinah‘s doors and the security we hired were with us speaking to us and making sure we were safe. We saw this girl lie to them about where she was staying and where her actual room was, tell them to ‘shut the f*** up and stop talking’ and then proceed to try and lunge towards Lauren‘s room so she could get a note to her.”
“The security guards who ushered her away and made sure she didn’t follow through were doing their jobs of protecting us,” the group added. “Especially in light of recent events like the shooting, we can’t ever be too safe with our personal space and protection. The security guard did nothing but try to make sure the girl went back down the stairs to where she was actually staying. She combated and fought to break free of their directing her and in the process was shouting that they were touching her and trying to take her clothes off.”
