One of pop’s most famous couples has split up. In a joint statement released on their Instagram Stories, Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello declared that their relationship was over after two years of dating. “Hey guys, we’ve decided to stop our romantic relationship,” their posts said. “However, our love for one another as humans is stronger than ever.” “We started our relationship as best friends, and we’ll keep it that way. We have been grateful for your support from the beginning and will continue to do so in the future.”
Cabello and Mendes originally met in 2015, when Mendes opened for Cabello’s band Fifth Harmony, which she left at the end of 2016. In November 2015, the duo released their debut single together, “I Know What You Did Last Summer,” which reached the top 20 on the singles list. They reunited nearly four years later for “Senorita,” which went to No. 1 on the charts. They won an American Music Award for collaboration of the year and were nominated for a Grammy for best pop duo/group performance for the album. Mendes and Cabello announced their relationship in an Instagram post shortly after the release of “Senorita.”
As for their personal careers, Cabello is wrapping up her third album, Familia, which is led by her summer single “Don’t Go Yet.” Mendes, on the other hand, will kick off his Wonder: The World Tour in March.
