Camila Cabello And Shawn Mendes Break Up Story Explained By Camila Cabello (Senorita):
Camila Cabello has revealed why she and Shawn Mendes called it quits after a two-year relationship.
The pop stars announced their split in November 2021 via a joint statement on their respective Instagram pages.
“Hey guys, we’ve decided to end our romantic relationship, but our love for each other as humans is stronger than ever,” they wrote in their posts.
Cabello has now revealed the reason for their breakup in an interview with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe.
“As I get older, my priorities shift,” she explained, adding, “and I think it was the same for both of us.”
“We both started when we were so young.” It’s almost as if we’re learning how to be healthy adults.”
The singer and Cinderella actress went on to say that her “focus has changed throughout her life.”
“I adore Shawn and feel as if there is nothing but love for him.” I’m finally at the point where I feel like I’ve had experiences – I’m doing therapy and putting in a lot of effort. My priorities have shifted dramatically.”
Mendes, 23, and Cabello, 24, began dating in July 2019, shortly after their hit single “Seorita” was released in June.
Rumours of a romance first surfaced after they collaborated on the 2015 single “I Know What You Did Last Summer.”
Mendes previously admitted that he didn’t realise he had been in love with Cabello for quite some time.
Mendes responded to a 2015 video of him denying they were dating in an interview with James Corden last year.
“At the end of the day,” the singer said at the time, “we’re just friends.”
“I didn’t even accept that I was completely in love with her for another three years after that point,” Mendes said of the video, “but it’s so obvious on my face right there.”
Mendes and Cabello stated in their breakup posts that they “began their relationship as best friends” and “will continue to be best friends” now.”
“We so appreciate your support from the beginning, and moving forward,” they added.
