Reports surfaced last year that Taylor Swift had chosen Fifth Harmony’s Camila Cabello as a sort of protegé and wanted her to leave the group. A relative of one of the members allegedly confirmed on Twitter this week that those reports were true, only to blame a hacker when the tweet hit media.
Lani Hansen, great aunt to Dinah Jane, took to Twitter on Monday to throw her own shade at Taylor Swift who is already under fire for drama with Kanye West and Kim Kardashian.
“I always knew Taylor Swift was a SNAKE!” Hansen tweeted. See the full post below.
The controversial tweet was picked up by reporters Monday night after being spread by Fifth Harmony fans. Afterwards, Hansen deleted the tweet and apologized for being hacked.
We’re not so sure the account was hacked, however. 1) Who hacks a Twitter account just to expose Taylor Swift? 2) Why would someone hack Hansen’s account and not a more recognized account? 3) The tweet was written in the same style as tweets Hansen takes credit for.

This isn’t the first time that Fifth Harmony has been shook by Taylor Swift “rumors.” In April 2015, HollywoodLife reported that Swift was trying to convince Cabello to put out a solo album.
“Time and time again, Taylor has brought to Camila’s attention that she has an amazing solo career ahead of her. It’s gotten to the point where she keeps trying to convince Camila to do a solo album,” a source told the website last year.
Perez Hilton speculated earlier this month that a feud had started between Camila and the rest of the group. Ally Brooke, Normani Kordei, Dinah Jane, and Lauren Jauregui celebrated the Fourth of July together, but Camila was absent.
We’re hoping the drama ends soon. Fourth Harmony just doesn’t have the same ring to it.
