Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes first met in 2014 when they were both opening acts for Austin Mahone’s tour. However, it wasn’t until they collaborated on the hit song ‘I Know What You Did Last Summer’ in 2015 that rumours of a romantic relationship between the two began to surface.
For years, the pair insisted that they were just good friends, but in July 2019, they were spotted holding hands and kissing while on a beach vacation in Miami. From that point on, they were open about their relationship, frequently sharing affectionate photos and videos on social media.
In September 2019, they made their official red carpet debut as a couple at the MTV Video Music Awards. They continued to attend events together and perform duets, including a steamy performance of their hit song ‘Señorita’ at the 2019 American Music Awards.
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Camila and Shawn spent a lot of time together, often posting photos of themselves cooking, playing music and doing other activities at home. They also participated in several virtual concerts and fundraisers together.
In July 2021, Camila celebrated her birthday with Shawn and their friends in Los Angeles, and Shawn posted a sweet tribute to her on Instagram. They eventually broke up in November 2021 due to unrevealed circumstances, but the moment that everyone has been waiting for is finally here. The couple was spotted holding hands and kissing at Coachella, so maybe, they are back together after all.
