Shawn Mendes confirms relationship status without mentioning Camila Cabello
After months of fan speculation about his relationship status, pop crooner Shawn Mendes, 21, has finally confirmed that he is indeed taken. He just won’t say by who.
“Honestly, obviously, I want to talk to you guys about this stuff,” Mendes said during a recent fan Q&A, according to CNN. The video has been viewed by more than 73,000 on Twitter. “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?”
It seems something is still holdin’ Mendes back.
Though the Canadian pop star — known for songs like “Mercy” and “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back” — stopped short of naming his significant other, Mendes has been photographed throughout the summer looking cozy with “Havana” singer Camila Cabello, who’s 22.
Their steamy duet “Señorita” is among the songs of the summer and the pair’s performance at MTV’s Video Music Awards last week was predicted to culminate in a kiss. Despite the candle-lit stage, the see-through dress and the intimate dance moves, the two ended their performance rubbing their noses and nothing more.
