Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello have decided to call it quits after two years of a fairytale romance. The couple announced their break-up through a joint statement published on their respective social media accounts:
“Hey guys, we’ve decided to end our romantic relationship but our love for another as humans is stronger than ever. We started our relationship as best friends and will continue to be best friends. We so appreciate your support from the beginning and moving forward. Camila and Shawn.”
The separation comes a few days after the couple sparked engagement rumors as Camila was photographed with a ring on her finger. However, the Havana hitmaker denied the rumors while speaking to Jimmy Fallon in August:
“I swear to God, I don’t know what hand the engagement ring goes on, so sometimes I’ll just, like, put it on the ring finger.”
Their sudden break-up comes on the heels of their very public romance during a Miami Beach vacation earlier this month and has sent fans into a meltdown on social media.
