The members of Fifth Harmony know what it’s like to rocket to fame as part of a group, so HuffPost Live was curious to hear what the performers thought about the earth-shaking recent departure of Zayn Malik from One Direction. Watch the video below.

“[Our] only opinion is that we respect him and his decision to [quit],” said Lauren Jauregui. Her group mate Camila Cabello added, “Yeah, I mean I think that One Direction was such a, I mean is, such an important part of some people’s lives, and I think it was just a dream for a lot of people. I was a huge One Direction fan, I think we all are, so I think it made people sad, but at the same time happiness and health [are] the most important thing. At the end of the day, he’s a person, and he’s a human being, and he needs to take care of himself.”

Interestingly, Cabello herself was recently the subject of unfounded band breakup rumors, when backed-up garbage disposal HollywoodLife floated a bogus story about Taylor Swift allegedly telling her to leave Fifth Harmony. There was no truth to the report, as Gossip Cop exclusively reported. Watch the video of Fifth Harmony discussing Zayn Malik below.
