Dating rumors have been swirling around Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello for years now, and we are finally here to break down their entire relationship once and for all. The singers got close after they released a song together back in 2015, and since then they have continuously supported each other’s work, gushed over each other in interviews, hung out a bunch of times and had the cutest little moments — so it’s only natural that fans have been shipping them.
And although they insisted for years that they were nothing more than friends, their recent interactions have a ton of fans convinced that they’ve finally become boyfriend and girlfriend. Get this, you guys — the “Havana” songstress and the “In My Blood” crooner have been spotted kissing, holding hands and going on a bunch of steamy dates recently — from late-night dinners to beach getaways to romantic strolls. Oh, and did we mention that Camila has attended a bunch of Shawn’s recent concerts? Yeah, they’ve definitely been spending a lot of time together, and it seems like they cannot keep their hands (or their lips!) off each other.
And on Wednesday, September 11, after internet trolls started attacking the duo for their constant PDA, the singers finally made their love Instagram official! Shawn posted a video of himself and Camila smooching, and our hearts were bursting.
“We saw on Twitter and stuff, you guys talking about the way we’re kissing, [saying] how it looks weird and that we kiss like fish. We just wanted to show you how we really kiss,” Shawn said.
OMG. And before his show at Mohegan Sun on Saturday, August 31, Shawn finally confirmed that he was in a relationship! Yep, when a fan asked him if he was in love, he replied, “Honestly, I wanna talk to you guys about this stuff but it’s not just me in the relationship! There’s another person involved. I can’t say things that I feel… It’s not just me deciding you know?”
