Some romances in the hip-hop industry are founded by the powers that be for advertising, while others are so genuine that fans often get caught up in them. For two years, stars Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello have been touting their love around the world, but on November 17 they announced their split.
Long before dating, Shawn and Cabello were close friends. They were two rising stars whose trajectories met, on the set of James Corden’s show. “I was completely in love with him,” says the singer from Havana. “It’s almost scarier because [in this kind of situation] you have more to lose, ” she said.
It is therefore understandable that in doubt and uncertainty, the actress for a long time made the choice of silence for the benefit of their friendship: “ I thought it was he who did not love me in return . […] I have loved people from afar, but falling in love with someone and having feelings for someone without them knowing… .. It’s different. ” Six years later, the statutes evolved and their romance could be felt in a now famous Instagram video, in which two musicians exchange a kiss.
“We will continue to be best friends”
A few weeks ago, an unverified post on DeuxMoi, the gossip Instagram account, spoke of the 24-year-old discussing her break-up with Shawn on a flight. The post had sparked rumors that she and Mendes had ended their relationship. This Thursday, November 18, Camila took to her Instagram page to write a statement announcing the news: “ Hey guys, we’ve decided to end our romantic relationship, but our love for each other as a as humans is stronger than ever we started our relationship as best friends and we will continue to be best friends. We appreciate your support so much from the start and moving forward. Camila and Shawn ”. A post posted by Shawn on his Instagram story.
The two stars released their first song together I Know What You Did Last Summer in 2015 and they released their second track Senorita , just before they started dating. Camila Cabello became a household name with Fifth Harmony and her first single Crying was released in May 2017. She is best known for her tracks such as Bad Things , Havana , Never Be The Same, to name a few. She was last seen in the reboot of the classic Cinderella, released this year on Amazon Prime Video.
It wasn’t until Halloween that the couple introduced themselves as spinning the perfect love affair, but apparently appearances are deceptive. Regardless, we’ll be hearing a lot more about it over the weeks, as fans have already taken to social media to dissect the relationship. Rumors of what led to the split are already circulating the internet, but overall it seems most comments lament the fact that another Pop couple have passed away.
