Fans and paparazzi alike have been speculating on Cabello and Mendes’ possible relationship after their single “Señorita” was released on June 21st. The video features the couple slow dancing before moving to a bedroom, where they took their clothes off and kissed passionately. On July 7th, they were caught holding hands while going house-hunting with a group of friends. The musicians were later spotted at a local restaurant by themselves. During their outing, the Stitches singer wrapped his arms around the former Fifth Harmony member. Even more, they remained clearly affectionate the entire time.
The alleged couple continued to add fuel to the fire during their 4th of July celebration. They were seen at the 6th annual Red White and Bootsy July 4th party at Nobu. Sources reported that the couple looked very cozy and remained intimate during the event. Nonetheless, both singers have clearly denied their relationship’ rumors several times. Last time rumors were was during a Fan Q & A after a concert. On a Youtube video shared by a fan, you can see Mendes as he is asked, “Are you dating Camila?” He responds by shaking his head and emphatically denying their relationship.
However, the press has questioned the validity of their alleged relationship; many have deemed it a PR strategy to promote their latest music video. Cabello, on the other hand, has contributed to their dating rumors on a couple of social media posts. On her Instagram stories, Cabello wrote after one of his performances, “@shawnmendes you couldn’t be more amazing. Wow,” She also added a red heart emoji. Consequently, she wrote, “You’re unreal. @shawnmendes.”
The Havana singer and former boyfriend, Matthew Hussey, ended their relationship days before the release of “Señorita” Mendes was previously linked with Haley Baldwin(now Haley Bieber).
Regardless of how real their relationship is, Cabello and Mendes appeared happy in all of their encounters. Time will tell if it is all an act or a true romance.
