Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes announce split after 2 years

The pair announced the news on Instagram.

Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes have announced their split after two years together.

The couple, who have said they will remain “best friends,” announced the news on Instagram with a joint statement.

It read: “Hey guys, we’ve decided to end our romantic relationship but our love for one another as humans is stronger than ever.

“We started out relationship as best friends and will continue to be best friends. We so appreciate your support from the beginning and moving forward.”

Cabello and Mendes had been friends for several years before becoming romantically involved.

Their first collaboration on Mendes’ track I Know What You Did Last Summer in 2015 came ahead of Cabello’s departure from Fifth Harmony.

They later reunited for Senorita in 2019, not long after confirming their relationship status.

The couple were last seen together earlier this month on a trip to Miami, Florida. They had previously both moved to Miami during the pandemic to be closer to Cabello’s family.

Mendes later said that the move was a “beautiful experience.” He said: “It was the first time I was quiet and I was able to be like, ‘What is happening in this world and how do I feel about it and what can I do and where does this go from here?'”

“That was the best gift I think I’ve ever, ever been given in my whole life.”

Cabello also spoke candidly about her relationship with Mendes online. The Havana singer wrote in an Instagram post that her relationship with Mendes had made her “braver, wiser, and better.”

She said: “When you’re in a relationship with someone, it feels like they are this mirror reflecting yourself back to you—I constantly have to confront my fears, my anxieties, my insecurities, my patterns of thinking, my beliefs about life and about myself.

“It’s not as simple as it looks in pictures sometimes. sometimes, it’s messy and uncomfortable and ugly lol. But there’s nothing like the pull, the FORCE that is love.”
