FORMER celebrity couple Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello had been fan favorites for years.
It was reported in November 2021, that the couple had called it quits.
Why did Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello break up?
On November 17, Mendes, 23, took to Instagram to inform fans about his relationship status.
"Hey guys, we've decided to end our romantic relationship but our love for one another as humans is stronger than ever," Mendes wrote on his Instagram story to 64million followers.
"We started our relationship as best friend and will continue to be best friends. We so appreciate your support from the beginning and moving forward."
Mendes and Cabello had regularly gushed about each other in interviews and on social media throughout their relationship.
Just three months into their romance, Cabello revealed they initially kept the relationship private "to protect it."
At this time, it remains unclear why the two split but the decision appears to be mutual.
How long were they together?
Prior to their split, Mendes and Cabello, 24, had been together for two years.
They first met in 2014 while performing as opening acts for Austin Mahone’s tour. At the time, Cabello was a member of Fifth Harmony.
From there, their friendship grew and so did the relationships rumors.
In June 2019, the former couple collaborated on Señorita and fans were convinced they were a pair but Mendes did not confirm a relationship until September of that year.
Almost one year later, Mendes opened up about his music in the trailer for the upcoming Netflix documentary, Wonder, and revealed that all of his songs are about her.
“My song comes on the radio or something, and I’m like, ‘Everything’s about you. They’re all, they have always been about you,’” he says in the clip.
“She goes, ‘What do you mean?’ Like, ‘They’re all about you. Like every song I’ve ever wrote.’”
Were they engaged?
In December 2020, the Life of The Party singer spoke with Entertainment Tonight and sparked engagement rumors telling the media outlet he was considering asking Cabello for her hand in marriage.
He said at the time: "I think for me it’s always been if I’m not willing to talk about that stuff then I kind of check out a little bit, and I don’t know, I really think when you know, you know.
"She's been one of my best friends since I was, like, 15 years old. I don't know, at the same time, I know we are really young so I don't want to jump, like, insanely fast, but I think when you find your person, you feel and you know that you have found your person."
Despite starting rumors, Mendes never popped the question.
