Don’t worry, we have been watching this closely and will tell you everything you need to know about Shawn Mendes and the girls.
He was in contact with Camila Cabello after they worked together on their 2015 hit “I know what you did last summer”. Shawn and Camilla were seen separately in public, and most people came to the strong conclusion that they were together when the duo published photos they had taken together in social media.
The public was on the verge of completing their search for his relationship status only when Shawn Mendes came out and said he didn’t have a girlfriend. He said that. Then what has Camilla meant to him all this time?
Well, Camilla didn’t comment on that because the news was spread much to the surprise of his loyal fans. People kept asking: Who is the girlfriend of this Mr. Handsome?

This accusation was more likely fuelled by the lyrics to one of his hit songs. I know that I can treat you better than him. That was the refrain of his 2016 hit Treat You Better. It didn’t go down well with him when he made a YouTube video in which he said: “First of all, I’m not gay”, “Secondly, it shouldn’t make any difference whether I’m gay or not. The focus should be on the music and not on my sexuality”.
