The friendship shared by Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes has been a thing a long time now. Lately what surprised their fans is the change in their relationship status from being best-friends to officially dating. Fans always wanted this but thought of it as an impossible affair. They have been working together for quite a few years but there have always been rumors surrounding them. People started taking them as a couple, a long time ago. Such assumptions from people resulted in numerous statements from both sides, on different occasions, which were meant to clarify that they are only together for their work. Now both have been setting off the dating scene on fire ever since they came out with their single “Señorita” in June, and there’s a lot of proves indicating that when there’s smoke, there’s fire!

It is said that you can never satisfy all people at once and in this situation, rightly so. Now that they have clarified their relationship status, some of the fans think that the couple posting mushy stuff that shows they are madly in love is nothing but a tool for marketing. The others believe this as true & think that the relationship has been building for a long time.  Their story can be trailed back to 2014, September when a flirtatious tweet meant for Shawn was posted by Camila, in which she labeled him ‘ShawnyBoy’. This was followed by Shawn’s appearance on Camila’s Instagram in 2015. Soon afterward they both were seen having fun together at a number of public events and parties.

There were plenty of pieces of evidence that fueled the thoughts of people regarding their sparkling chemistry.

In November 2015, Cabello spoke about their professional relationship during an interview with Elvis Duran, as they both performed together on The Tonight Show, at the release of “I Know What You Did Last Summer”.  Till then Cabello only talked about their relationship as a bond of two professionals.

She said that they have been very passionate about their work and song. She told that the coolest part of working together was that they both were so professionally involved in the making of the song, as artists, and were so consumed in it that it resulted in such an intense experience.

Well in November 2017 the rumors of Mendes dating Hailey Baldwin broke out. Both were seen together attending the 2018 Met Gala. The rumors dropped down when Baldwin went on in her life by getting married to Justin Bieber.  Mendes confessed about sending her a congratulations text on her wedding. He also talked about their relationship saying this is all that was between us although people wanted more of it even though in reality, there was nothing more.

Meanwhile, it was observed that Cabello had a break up with her boyfriend Mathew Hussey, whom she has been dating for almost one and a half years. After the split was announced, Cabello requested her fans that if they really loved her, they must not send hateful material to people she has once loved.

She told them that this type of activity really hurts her and it only results in adding to the pain and agony to what she was already suffering. She mentioned that people who are facing hate coming their way are by all means real humans and it is not funny at all to send them such insensitive messages. Camila also stated that such hateful acts are against the values that she makes a point of talking about.
