Following all the D-R-A-M-A surrounding her exit from Fifth Harmony, Machine Gun Kelly has come to the defence of Camila Cabello, the co-artist of his Billboard Hot 100 top 10 duet “Bad Things.”

Earlier this week, it was revealed that Camila Cabello had left Fifth Harmony after over four years in the band. The remaining members of the group alleged that they’d been informed of Cabello’s departure by her “representatives,” something that Cabello herself vehemently denied.

This, however, caused another response from Fifth Harmony members Lauren Jauregui, Ally Brooke, Normani Kordei, and Dinah Jane, who said that Cabello had been unresponsive to their attempts to sort out any drama in the group.

Now Machine Gun Kelly has come to the defence of his Camila Cabello.

Cabello and Kelly have worked together on the track “Bad Things,” which has been climbing the charts. The pair have been performing the track, which sees Cabello sing the chorus and Kelly rapping in the verses, at various radio tours around the country, some of which also saw performances from Fifth Harmony (when Cabello was still in the band).

Well, in a recent radio interview, Kelly said that he felt that Camila was being “picked on” by the other members of the group.

Kelly went on to say that the rest of the band, given that they were put together on a reality show, should be grateful for the times that they have had rather than focusing on the negativity of the current moment.

Watch the interview below.

Since leaving the band and releasing her own statement, Camila Cabello has yet to respond to the remaining members of Fifth Harmony’s accusations that she was unresponsive during any mediative attempts.

However, a source told Billboard that Camila “could not have been clearer about her desire to leave the group.” Indeed, there had been some signs that she hadn’t been happy in Fifth Harmony.

While we don’t know for certain what went down between Camila and the rest of Fifth Harmony, we do understand that it can’t be a pleasant or nice experience to have it all aired out on social media. We get that fans need to be informed, but it must be really hard to lose a member of a group you’ve been part of, as it must making the decision to leave said group. We just hope that all parties are doing okay and that they can manage to sort out and diffuse the situation.
