... and that's exactly what they've just gone and done.
The four-piece girl band have taken to Twitter to reveal that they are taking an indefinite break from the band.
"Reflecting on the past six years since we started on X-Factor, we've realized 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 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 realized that in order to stay authentic to ourselves and to you, we do need to take some time for now to go on hiatus from Fifth Harmony in order to pursue solo endeavors."
The girls went on to insist that they *will* reunite in the not-too-distant future, but let's be real, we've been burned by that line before...
"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," they continued. "In doing this we are allowing ourselves to gain new experiences, strengths 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," they said. "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," they promised. "All our love, from the bottom of our heart, Dinah Jane, Lauren, Normani and Ally xoxoxoxo."
While the news doesn't totally have us shook as we ~all~ saw this day coming, it's still so sad to hear that the woke 5H era is coming to an end (this chapter of it, anyway).
Thanks for the good times, baes <3
