Camila Cabello & Shawn Mendes were seen making out in a diner

Towards the end of June, Camila Cabello broke up with her boyfriend Matthew Hussey. Hussey and Cabello had been dating for over a year, although I’m not sure many people were like “oh, they’ll last forever!” It seemed like a placeholder relationship until she moved on. And boy, did she move on. Her breakup seemed especially interesting given that it came around the same time as her single and music video for “Senorita” dropped – she worked on “Senorita” with Shawn Mendes, a young man who has been trying to sex up his image for the past few years. It seemed perfect: Mendes and Cabello clearly belong together, for love and record sales and PR. And now it’s all happening!

For the past few weeks, Camila and Shawn have been spotted out and about together rather consistently. All of the photos are mega-exclusives (meaning, big $$ to license the pics for publication), but it’s been interesting to watch the flurry of photo-ops from the outside. Most of them are clear set-ups and someone from Camp Cabello or Camp Mendes (or both) is clearly building up this story and this romance. Until this weekend, it was just “photos of Camila and Shawn spending time together.” But now we have evidence that they’re romantically involved. Behold, the KISSING VIDEO.

Yeah, it looks like a cartoon, but it really happened – you can see the photos here. E! News also had some gossip:

Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello have left their hearts in San Francisco! As fans continue to speculate as to what’s really going on between the pop stars, the duo popped up in the Bay Area on Friday ahead of Shawn’s upcoming concert stops in Oakland, Calif. Shawn and Camila, who eyewitnesses revealed to E! News didn’t shy away from showing affection, enjoyed an intimate breakfast at a local café in the area.

A source said the performers were holding hands throughout the date and looked “flirty and very close.” Another eyewitness said Shawn and Camila enjoyed a spread of pancakes, omelettes and bacon, adding, “They looked like really good friends… He paid the bill.”

“They definitely looked like a couple,” added the first source. At one point, fellow restaurant goers caught Shawn, 20, wrapping his arms around 22-year-old Camila’s waist.

The lovebirds celebrated the Fourth of July together, and Camila gushed over her “amazing” and “unreal” boo while documenting his L.A. tour stop on social media. Shawn and Camila were most recently spotted holding hands after grabbing brunch in West Hollywood. Ever since, an insider previously told E! News, “They don’t seem to want to spend any time apart.”

“They’ve been completely inseparable over the last week,” the sourced explained.

I’ve been hoping for a major celebrity summer romance, but we haven’t gotten one, so I’ll take this. I mean, it would be rude to NOT pay attention to them. They really want us to talk about them and understand on a deep level that they are not kids, that they are the Justin & Britney of this new generation. And I’m fine with it? They’re cute kids. Let ‘em have a summer romance.

    Gawd, he’s hot (and not too young for me, ergo my comment haha).

  2. Snazzy says:

    She’s pretty, but boy do I find her voice grating. Like zero vocal talent. It’s amazing who we consider to be singers these days …

    • Jb says:

      +1000 They auto tune her to hell and then she breathy sings or baby voices her lyrics to sound “sexy”. Please next!!!

    It’s just so obviously PR, I can’t not laugh every time I see their pictures. She sure learned from Taylor Swift, didn’t she. Her voice is so bad, it makes TS sound like an opera singer though. I like Shawn, he doesn’t need these stunts though to be popular.

    • Arizona says:

      Yeah, it seems extremely fake. Combined with all those rumors of him bearding, I’m raising an eyebrow at the very suspiciously convenient timing of this romance.

  5. Dani says:

    This is so forced it hurts me.

  6. Zee says:

    I hope they’ll be the new Ariana and Pete. We need as many messy celebrity couples as we can get. It’s raining like crazy and I am stuck at home so they are all the entertainment I get these days.

  7. BANANIE says:

    I think it’s cute they’re kind of reuniting after their I Know What You Did Last Summer song a few years back, though I don’t remember anyone speculating romance back then.

    I always thought the Matthew Hussey choice was weird- why would you ever want to date a dating coach??

    I hope there’s was no overlap between the relationships.

  8. SuperStef says:

    I like these two together, it works somehow.

    She’s not a great singer but I have a fondness for her. He’s a major talent and one of Canada’s best musical exports lately. I’m here for this union!

  9. Chelsey says:

    Can someone buy them some chemistry, please? What a snooze.

  10. JM says:

    I hope the contract they drew up is favorable to them both! He gets no respect from me with this painfully obvious fake relationship. Barf.

  11. Zazu says:

    He’s so earnest and cute in interviews. The speculation around his sexuality/virginity because of his noticeable lack of girlfriends clearly got to him- he’s said so in interviews- that it’s hurtful he gets dragged for not dating enough. Hailey Baldwin is the only person he’s been linked to.

    I’m not surprised he would be super extra about wanting everyone to know he found lust/infatuation with a real-life, attractive, female celebrity. It’s good for his brand, PR and he seems genuinely into her. It’s hard to fake the goofy grin he has around her. And of course she has a new album coming out soon so it’s win-win for them both.
    Hollywood love is so romantic 😋

    I watched get videoclip just because of all this talk and boy is he stiff. And he looks like a 13 year old playing grownup. She gives it all, sexes it up, and makes the think less embarrassing to watch. It’s still like looking at a wood board and an Alexa trying to get it on.

  13. Lizzie says:

    i don’t care if it is fake. they’re beautiful. all of my summer flings were kind of fake too…

  14. Eribra says:

    My 9 year old is here for this!

  15. Daisy says:

    If I cared about any of them, this would dethrone Harry Styles and Taylor Swift from my list of favourite fake relationships. This kissing video was peak acting, I loved it.
    But Camila still is the most annoying pop artist out there to me right now.

  16. Leriel says:

    Stans Twitter forced him to play Prince Eric in live action Little mermaid, but judging by this video he is horrible actor, lol.

    I don’t find her sexy, she is pretty, clear, and she’s looks natural on photos and videos, she doesn’t “pose” like some other celebs, she has “it” factor, I think. But they don’t have chemistry at all, they don’t look awkward like Tiddles, because they are young, I think.

    I guess they want be like Ariana/Pete, because they are not problematic like those two were before dating.

  17. SM says:

    I may be too old, i don’t even know who she is ( and he is not my jar of jam) but those photos are as old, as in old school staged PR stunt. Can’t kids these days figure out something more innovative to promote their music?

  18. iconoclast59 says:

    This looks very staged. I noticed in the kiss video that she wasn’t kissing him so much as letting him kiss her. She kept her arms at her sides, didn’t lean into it, etc.

    And boy, she’s really channeling Penelope Cruz on that V Magazine cover.
