Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello have decided to end their two-year relationship.

The singers announced the news on Wednesday, posting their joint statements to their Instagram stories.

“Hey guys, we’ve decided to end our romantic relationship but our love for one another as humans is stronger than ever,” the statement read. “We started our relationship as best friends and will continue to be best friends.”

“We appreciate your support from the beginning and moving forward, Camila and Shawn,” the statement ended.

The pair were friends for several years before they started dating in 2019.

Mendes and Cabello have created two different songs together. Their first collab, “I Know What You Did Last Summer,” was released in 2015 when the two were friends. Their second duet “Senorita” was released in 2019 when they announced they were an official couple.

They were photographed throughout the summer sharing several PDA moments and made their first major public appearance as a couple in August at the MTV Video Music Awards, performing “Senorita” on the main stage.

In November of the same year, they performed the Grammy-nominated song at the American Music Awards.

Cabello and Mendes quarantined together in Miami during the Covid-19 pandemic, which Medes said in August was a time they used to get closer together.

Mendes said his single “Summer of Love” was inspired by the time he and his love spent together.

“It feels good. It was like writing about the first couple of months actually in lockdown. Camila and I were so lucky because we were able to just kind of be in a still moment, and it was the first time in the past six years that we’ve been just able to relax and not work at all,” he told Audacy Check In. “We were able to go on bike rides around Miami, and it just felt really beautiful.”

Cabello has also spoken about how the Covid-19 lockdown brought them closer and how Mendes helped her with her anxiety.
