Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes Reportedly Split Again Following Their Coachella Reunion
Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello have reportedly decided to break up again following their Coachella reunion in April. A source told Entertainment Tonight that the singers “gave things a try, but ultimately the timing isn’t right for either of them.” The exes are reportedly now “staying busy and doing their own things.” Reps for Cabello and Mendes did not immediately respond to POPSUGAR’s request for comment.
The question on Cabello and Mendes’s fans’ minds now is whether or not this breakup will be final. The pair’s relationship dates back to 2014 when they met and became close friends while on tour with Austin Mahone. While their chemistry was undeniable to fans from the start, they remained just friends and dated other people for years. They also collaborated on two hit songs: 2015’s “I Know What You Did Last Summer” and 2019’s “Señorita.” The two finally began dating in 2019, with Mendes admitting he was always in love with Cabello.
“It takes a lot of courage to tell the woman that you love that you love her,” Mendes told Access Hollywood in December 2020. “I had five years of fear of getting rejected by her that just stopped me from doing it every time, or just confidence. It just took a lot. It took a long time of preparing. I had a five-year warmup to finally be able to tell her how I felt.”
After two years of dating, Cabello and Mendes would ultimately split in November 2021. Cabello went on to date Austin Kevitch throughout 2022, while Mendes was briefly linked to Sabrina Carpenter (though they never officially dated).
By early 2023, the “Señorita” singers had reconnected, as a source told ET that they had been talking long before their 2023 Coachella hookup. “Camila and Shawn were talking and spending time together for months before Coachella,” the source said. “They always had a lot of love for each other, even while they were broken up. They still care about each other.”
While Cabello and Mendes’s most recent split seems final, considering their history, fans will likely be hoping for another reunion down the line.
