In their statement, Fifth Harmony says, "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." 

They add, "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."

Fans, of course, are sharing their emotions via social media:

 

However, there is a silver lining. The statement seems to make it clear that the hiatus is only temporary.

Fifth Harmony also took time to thank their fans, "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..."

Fifth Harmony will perform their remaining shows throughout the year as a group before they begin their solo careers so there is still a chance to see them live and bid farewell.
