Shawn Mendes Finally Confirmed That He And Camila Cabello Are Dating

    "It's not just me in the relationship. There's another person involved."

    Ever since they teamed up in April to record their smash hit single, "Señorita," Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello have been pretty much inseparable.

    However, it's safe to say that they've kept everyone guessing at precisely what the status of their relationship is.

    Because while they may have been filmed and photographed getting very ~cosy~ by fans and photographers alike, anytime the question of their relationship comes up, they instantly refuse to divulge anything.

    In fact, just last week at the MTV VMAs, they seemed to troll the hell out of everyone — including Joe Jonas, Sophie Turner, and Taylor Swift — by ending their performance as though they were about to kiss.

    They pulled away at the very last second.

    However, Mendes appears to have now put a stop to all the speculation by finally confirming that he and Cabello are in a relationship — but refused to elaborate any further out of respect for her.

    In a video shot and shared by a fan on Twitter, Mendes was asked during a Q&A: "You've said you've never been in love. Has that changed recently?"

    “Honestly, I wanna say I wanna talk to you guys about this stuff but it’s not just me in the relationship! There’s another peron involved. I can’t say things that I feel... It’s not just me deciding you know?” #ShawnMendesTheTourUncasville

    The question was in relation to an interview Mendes gave back in 2017 in which he said he couldn't wait to fall in love and write music about a girlfriend. Speaking to Clash, he said: "The day I can actually write a song about my girlfriend who I am truly in love with — because I've never actually truly been in love — I don't know what type of music's going to come out of me when I am."

    And he replied: "Honestly, I wanna say I wanna talk to you guys about this stuff, but it's not just me in the relationship. There's another person involved, and I can't say things that I feel. It's not just me deciding, you know?"

    And many fans responded to the tweet, saying they respected Mendes's answer and thought he and Cabello should have the right to speak about their relationship in their own time.

    @TrackingSM Ahhh so he is in love she just wants it to be private

    @TrackingSM Matters of the heart, between two people, are sacred. Therefore, private. If Shawn and Camila wish to discuss their relationship they will do so on their own terms. 💌

    @TrackingSM Aww lol respecting her i wish i could have a man like that

    So I guess we'll have to sit tight for any further details.
