Are Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello a professional couple or a couple-couple? That’s the question that folks who see them together are asking. Their professional hookup started back in 2015 when they combined for the hit “I Know What You Did Last Summer,” which they sang together at the LA Jingle Ball that year. He was 16, she was 18 at the time. They got together again in 2016 to host the iHeartradio MuchMusic Video Awards.
Now it’s 2019 and they have combined yet again for their smash hit “Senorita,” which is causing them to perform together as they did at both nights of his LA Staples Center concerts last week.
That’s all professional, but the 4th of July pool party, the brunches with his family and the late night grub grabs around LA suggest there’s more, which is added to by the touchy, feely public intimacy they share at these sightings. Though Shawn has denied a dating relationship, Camila’s Instagram says something different; in it she refers to Mendes as “amazing” and “unreal.”
Spokespeople lay cover with obtuse statements to HollywoodLife like, “They aren’t putting any labels on what they are or are not right now because they have been friends for so long. They also can’t deny the attraction they have for each other and the genuine feelings of liking each other more than just friends. They both are eager to try something more. But are also scared to dive in because they don’t want to ruin their friendship and hurt each other’s feelings down the road if it doesn’t work out.” Translation: They’re a couple-couple.
