Legal Question in Landlord & Tenant Law in California

My roommate and I signed a lease agreement (both names are on the lease as "residents") and both have signed and initialed Agreement. One of us wants to exercise early termination which means a $2000 fee. Are both of us liable to pay the $2000 fee (split 50/50) or just the roommate that wants to leave?
