Lauren Jauregui Addresses the Rumors She and Camila Cabello Were Romantically Involved: “It made me feel like a predator “

Lauren Jauregui shot down fan rumors that she was romantically involved with Camila Cabello.

Jauregui spoke Becky G on her En La Sala podcast about how rumors that she and her former Fifth Harmony bandmate “were into each other” made her “feel like a predator” before she came out.

“I was 18 and absolutely not trying to come out to the public. This is gonna be a controversial acknowledgment but whatever,” the 24-year-old said. “People thought Camila and I were into each other. And that made me so uncomfortable, like disgustingly uncomfortable because I was queer but she was not.”

“It made me feel like a predator because of the type of clips people would put together and the type of stories people would write,” she added. “I was always the aggressor and I was always the one turning her … I also did not have that connection with her.”
