When it comes to relationships, Camila Cabello is most known for her long-term love with Shawn Mendes. The couple first revealed that they were dating in July 2019 and were together for more than two years until calling it quits in November 2021. Before going from friends to lovers with the “In My Blood” crooner, the former Fifth Harmony member was rumored to date some other famous faces in the past.
Camila knew Shawn for a long time before he became her beau, but it took years for her to think of him as more than a friend. “You know, I thought he was cute but I was like, ‘He’s doing other stuff, so whatever,’” Camila said during Shawn’s 2020 Netflix documentary In Wonder, recalling the first time they met. “And then, I guess it must have been about four or five years ago, we were backstage at this Taylor Swift show. I went to his dressing room to say hi. And we, like, started writing this song. Then after that, we like, spent a lot of time with each other because we had the song together and we did a whole Jingle Ball tour together. And that’s really when the f–king saga started. I really liked him. I guess he liked me, but I don’t really know.”
During the time they weren’t together Camila was romantically linked to Austin Mahone, Louis Tomlinson, Jacob Whitesides and Michael Clifford, among others in the past. After years of insisting they were nothing more than friends, Camila and Shawn confirmed their relationship in July 2019.
“Honestly, this past year and a half was the first time I really experienced falling in love with another person. I think there is so much more depth to love when you know you are in it with another person,” Camila told Elle magazine in September 2019. “You have so much more to say — I think that’s what makes me emotional.”
Since they first got together, the pair has packed on the PDA and shared their romance with fans. In fact, fans even thought the couple got married in October 2020, but Shawn was quick to set the record straight. “We haven’t [tied the knot], but I did buy her a beautiful ring and I think she might have just wore it on this finger at some moment, just because she’s fun,” he told the Capital Breakfast with Roman Kemp radio show. But things came to an end in November 2021, when the pair announced that they had officially split.
“Hey guys, we’ve decided to end our romantic relationship but our love for one another as humans is stronger than ever,” they shared in a joint social media statement. “We started our relationship as best friends and will continue to be best friends. We so appreciate your support from the beginning and moving forward.”
