Shawn Mendes announces split from Camila Cabello

Following his split from Camila Cabello, music’s teen dream Shawn Mendes took to Instagram to announce that although they split earlier this year, the former couple remain close pals.

“We decided to break up over a year ago. We will always have a lot of love and respect for each other and our fans. It’s unfortunate that we have to accept that we will never be together romantically but we are super committed to our careers and seeing other people. We wish each other nothing but the best and plan to stay friends.”

Mendes and Cabello, both 20, dated for over two years, before they called it quits at the end of 2018. According to E! News, in October, Mendes and Cabello, who were once part of the girl group Fifth Harmony, “were still close friends. Both seem like they are well-adjusted and continue to make time for each other.”

Mendes first confirmed he was dating Cabello in November 2016. Cabello then confirmed her relationship with Mendes in December of the same year.

Many Mendes and Cabello fans took to Mendes’ Instagram page to express their sadness.

Cabello responded shortly after, via Instagram Stories, announcing that she was “shaking.”

The two were last spotted together on stage on November 26 during a performance of Cabello’s hit song “Havana” for the CMT Artists of the Year awards show.
