Fifth Harmony's Lauren Jauregui has hit back at Tiffany Haddish for her swipe at the band during the MTV VMAs.

The 'Girls Trip' actress was presenting the Best Hip Hop award with Kevin Hart when she praised former member Camila Cabello and lashed out at the remaining members of the band, which went on hiatus in May. 

Tiffany said: "She's nominated for five VMAs tonight, five of them.

"I'm super proud of her. So those of you watching at home, hi Fifth Harmony."

However, Lauren - who is in the group with Normani Kordei, Ally Brooke and Dinah Jane - was upset.

She tweeted:

While Lauren hit back at the comments from home, Nicki Minaj stood up for Fifth Harmony's Normani at the ceremony.

After Kevin and Tiffany announced that Nicki won the Best Hip Hop prize, she used her speech to defend her pal.

She said: "Tiff, don't be coming for Fifth Harmony, because Normani is that b***h."

And Normani tweeted in response: "I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you. You perfect queen you! Thank you for lifting me up. God is real. Now y'all know I love me some Nickiiiiiiiiiiiiii. Congratulations on tonight!!! Proud of you always (sic)."
