We have been reporting on a possible Fifth Harmony split for the last few weeks ahead of their UAE gig on 16 March, as they scrap tour international dates and delete references to the band from their social media. But this week singer Normani Kordei has declared the girl group is "resilient" and united as split rumours swirl.
The band became a four-member troop after Camila Cabello left at the end of 2016 to pursue a solo career, and each of the remaining stars have since pursued solo endeavours of their own, with Normani releasing her long-awaited Love Lies duet with Khalid on Wednesday.
The side projects have caused fans to speculate Normani, Ally Brooke, Dinah Jane, and Lauren Jauregui are close to breaking up, but Kordei insists the girls have a bond with each other that could never be broken.
"Everything that we've been through, I feel like literally it's us against the world and that's together and apart," she told Billboard. "We'll always have some place to call home, which is Fifth Harmony."
The pop stars cancelled their Australian concert tour last week, adding fuel to the split rumour fire, and Normani continued to highlight the strength of their commitment to the group without confirming or denying whether the singers plan to part ways.
"It (Fifth Harmony) will always be the biggest part of our lives," the 21-year-old noted. "I'm thankful for those girls. We've literally been through anything you could possibly imagine. We're resilient. It's us against the world."
