Camila Cabello is leaving Fifth Harmony but says the girl group shouldn't be shocked by her departure.

Cabello wrote in a statement on social media sites that she has repeatedly talked with the other group members about her plans to focus on a solo career.

Group members released a statement on Twitter early Monday saying they were just informed of her plans. They wished Cabello well and said the group will continue as a quartet.

Fifth Harmony was formed on the second season of the "The X Factor" in 2012 and scored its biggest hit last year with "Worth It."

Cabello has been branching out on her own with collaborations with Shawn Mendes on "I Know What You Did Last Summer" and a duet with Machine Gun Kelly, "Bad Things," that reached No. 10 on the Billboard Hot 100.
