Camila Cabello has taken the world by storm since she emerged as a solo artist after leaving her former girl group Fifth Harmony, giving us the massive hit that is “Havana” and a debut album that truly left a mark. She sings about love and heartbreak and is very open about all the emotions she’s going through with her fans and as someone who seems to love the idea of being in love, everyone is wondering what is her relationship status? Does she have a boyfriend?
The 21-year-old songstress recently attended the 2018 MTV EMAs with her lovely mom as her date and not too long before this awards show, she went to the 2018 American Music Awards with her dad her plus one. So what’s the deal with her love life? Which leads us to…
Does Camila have a boyfriend?
YES, she does! It’s obvious she likes to keep her personal life as private as she can, but Camila is a taken woman. She’s dating relationship guru Matthew Hussey, and she’s been seeing the 31-year-old Brit for months now after they first met during an appearance on the Today Show. Although they keep things rather low-key, the songstress has finally opened up about their relationship and it’s safe to say she’s head-over-heels in love.
“He’s so similar to me. In person, we’re just weird and silly and stupid together. He makes me the happiest I’ve ever been in my life,” Camila said to Marie Claire. “Any time he’s [in the audience at one of my shows], I get super nervous. I stutter or my hands are shaky. It’s annoying, because we’ve been together for kind of like a long time now, but every time, I’m like, ‘Oh my God, I have to talk now.'”
And she was a longtime fan of his too! Camila admitted she’s been listening to Matthew’s life advice long before she ever met him.
“I’ve always been really interested in human dynamics and I’ve always listened to a lot of self-improvement stuff. I think that it’s something that rubbed off on me from my mom. I used to listen to his podcast before I even met him. My mom actually listened to his podcast a couple of years before we met each other. I’m really interested in that stuff,” Camila said in an interview, although she didn’t really want to give away too much information about their relationship. Back in 2017, the songstress did explain why she often chooses to keep the details of her dating life to herself.
“I get why people are interested in my love life, but I don’t want to give people that piece of me because it is the most important part,” she said. “Here’s my dream life: I want to make songs and have incredible experiences with people. I don’t want to be locked up in a hotel room and just do press and red carpets. That’s not the kind of life I want to live. I want to make music, but I also want to go on road trips with friends. I want to go backpacking around Europe. I want to meet a Spanish boy in Spain and fall in love.”
Well, she did fall in love with a guy from another country, so she made that part come true! Fans did spot the pair recently in an airport and insisted that they kiss for everyone. So, the songstress went up to her bae and planted one on him.
So yeah, they’re totally happy and in love! And since they’re both so hush-hush when it comes to their relationship, this major PDA moment with so many onlookers came as quite the surprise. But as Camila explained to Billboard, she simply felt comfortable enough to share a private moment with those who loyally support her.
“Those were my biggest, biggest, most hard-core fans and they know him anyway because they know that we’re together. I thought it was really cute when they did that, and it’s like a trusted circle. They’re chanting my mom’s and my manager’s and my dad’s and my sister’s name, so they know a lot, so I thought it was really cute when they said that, and I was just like, ‘Let’s give them a kiss,'” she said.
Aww, how cute is that? And while they both haven’t really publicly shared many details about their relationship and the singer said she doesn’t plan on parading around with her bae on a red carpet anytime soon, Matthew isn’t out here denying their love story either. When he was asked if he is dating Camila, he responded honestly but kept things short and sweet.
“I’m in a relationship. I’m having a good time, she’s great,” he said. Aww, so cute!
Does Camila have other famous exes?
While many fans totally ship her and Shawn Mendes, these two are just friends and have been the best of buds for years. She might’ve written and recorded a duet with the 20-year-old singer that was obviously about a romantic relationship, but it wasn’t between them! In fact, they first met while they were both on tour with Austin Mahone, 22, and he was Camila’s first public relationship. And while their breakup had plenty of drama surrounding it, that seems to all be water under the bridge now and they’re totally cool with each other. They briefly dated when they were teens, and they’ve both moved on now. Oh, young love. But now, she’s doing better than ever when it comes to her love life.
