Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello announced on social media they have broken up after two years of dating. The two shared a joint statement to their respective Instagram stories on Wednesday night, sharing that they plan to stay best friends. The joint statement read: “Hi guys, we’ve decided to end our romantic relationship but our love for one another as humans is stronger than ever. We started our relationship as best friends and will continue to be best friends. We so appreciate your support from the beginning and moving forward.”
The two met while on tour as opening acts for Austin Mahone in 2014, when Cabello was part of the band Fifth Harmony. Mendes and Cabello have collaborated on music over the years and released their first song together, “I Know What You Did Last Summer,” in November 2015. They officially started dating in July 2019, and when they took the stage at the American Music Awards in Los Angeles later that year to perform a rendition of their collaboration, “Señorita,” that proved they were more than just friends.
There were no obvious signs recently that the couple were on the rocks; just this past Halloween, the duo shared pictures of their costumes together on social media, and shared a kiss while performing in New York in September.
