Who is Camila Cabello Dating: Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello broke up on November 17, 2021. They said so in a joint post on their Instagram Stories. They had been seeing each other for two years. “Hey guys, we’ve decided to end our romantic relationship, but our love for each other as people is stronger than ever,” Cabello and Mendes wrote. “When we started dating, we were best friends, and that’s how it will stay. We are so grateful for your help from the start and going forward. Camila and Shawn.”
When they were seen walking their dog together in Miami in January, rumors spread that they were getting back together. But soon after, Mendes was seen in Hawaii with a woman who looked like Cabello, and Cabello was seen with her Cinderella co-star. Camila Cabello talked about her breakup with Shawn Mendes for the first time since she told the world about it. She did so on Apple Music 1’s New Music Daily with Zane Lowe.
“My goals and priorities have changed over the course of my life,” said Cabello (per Elle). “… And the same thing happened during the years we were together. My main goal was to figure out how to have a happy life and a healthy, happy relationship. I went to therapy often.”
Cabello said that the breakup was caused by a change in focus, not by problems in the relationship. “My focus has really changed,” she said. “And even now, when I’m trying to promote myself, what’s the f—ing point if I’m not having fun? I think that as I get older, the things that matter to me do change. I think it was the same for both of us.”
She also said that both she and Mendes are getting older. “We’re really learning how to be healthy adults because we both started so young,” Cabello said. “And sometimes that means not making your job your top priority. That’s fine.”
Camila Cabello Early Life
Camila Cabello was born in March 1997 in the Cuban city of Cojimar. Camila and her family moved between Mexico City, where her father, Alejandro Cabello, was from, and Havana, Cuba, when she was a child (where her mother, Sinuhe Estrabao, was from). When Camila was five years old, she, her mother, and her sister Sofia all moved to Miami. Her father couldn’t get a visa at the time, so he didn’t come to live with the family until about a year and a half later. In 2008, Cabello became a U.S. citizen. She went to Miami Palmetto High School, but she dropped out in the ninth grade to become a singer. She later got her high school diploma.
Shawn Mendes Early Life
Shawn Peter Raul Mendes was born in the Canadian city of Pickering on August 8, 1998. Karen, his mother, is from England, and Manuel, his father, is from Portugal. Aaliyah is the name of his younger sister. Mendes finished high school in June 2016. He went to Pine Ridge Secondary School, where he played ice hockey, soccer, and was in the glee club.
In 2012, when he was 14, Mendes learned how to play guitar by watching tutorial videos on YouTube. He then started putting his own cover videos online. In 2013, he posted a cover of Justin Bieber’s “As Long as You Love Me” on the social video app Vine. Over the next few months, millions of people watched and followed him.
As his six-second covers of popular songs got him more attention, he had the third-most fans of any musician on Vine by August 2014. In January 2014, his manager, Andrew Gertler, got him signed to Island Records. In April 2014, he won Ryan Seacrest’s “Best Cover Song” contest. In May of the same year, he signed with Island Records. Before he was signed, Mendes went on a two-month tour of the United States with other well-known Vine users as part of MAGCON.
