Fifth Harmony have announced a hiatus so its remaining members can pursue their respective solo projects.
Posting a statement on Twitter, the girl group thanked their fans for their support and said they would continue their remaining scheduled shows as planned.
"Reflecting on the past six years since we started on X-Factor, we've realised just how far we've come and we appreciate everything so much, more now than ever. We've really had one hell of a memorable journey together and can't even begin to express our gratitude to y'all for coming along with us on this wild ride!
"After six years going hard, non stop, we also realised 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 endeavours.
"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, strangths 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.
"We do have some upcoming shows through the end of the year which will still happen as planned, and we can't wait!
"All our love, from the bottom of our hearts, Dinah Jane, Lauren, Normani and Ally."
The Independent suggested in a recent feature that it was likely Fifth Harmony would break as a group - at least for a while - in a similar way to One Direction and other groups before them.
Former group member Camila Cabello left the group in 2016 and has since embarked on a successful solo career with her debut album Camila.
Meanwhile Lauren Jauregui teamed up with Halsey on the LGBT+ anthem "Strangers" along with a track with Steve Aoki; Ally Brooke worked with Lost Kings on a single and Dinah Jane featured on RedOne's collaboration with French Montana and Daddy Yankee for "Boom Boom" last October.
