Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes have split after two years of dating.
The pop singers announced this in a joint statement posted to both their Instagram accounts.
“Hey guys, we’ve decided to end our romantic relationship, but our love for one another as humans is stronger than ever,” they said, per E! News. “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.”
Rumors of a Camila Cabello–Shawn Mendes relationship floated around for years, but the two finally confirmed their status in 2019. That year they also released their duet “Señorita,” which topped the charts worldwide.
Cabello recently opened up to Glamour about her relationship with Mendes for our October 2021 global cover. “For better, for worse, we’re very transparent with each other. I think that’s why we can trust each other so much, because it’s a very 3D human relationship,” she said. “I’ll be venting or ranting about something, and he’ll be like, ‘Have you talked to [your therapist] about it?’ And I’ll be like, ‘No. I’ve got to do a session.’ And he’ll do the same thing to me. I think even just the language of being like, ‘Hey, I’m sorry that I’ve been distant with you or snappy with you. I’m just struggling and I’m feeling kind of anxious.’ That level of transparency really helps a lot.”
Mendes said something similar to Glamour via email. “Camila and I give each other an extreme amount of patience and understanding,” he said. “I think the truth is that when you’re struggling with mental health, it turns you sometimes into the version of yourself that you don’t like to be—and kind of loving and accepting your person through that, and being there for them through that, is life-changing. We give each other so much space and understanding and patience.”
