Camila Cabello Reveals When Her Friendship With Shawn Mendes Turned Into Something More

Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes are no strangers to PDA now that the two of them have finally confirmed their relationship. Last week they were seen making out court-side at an LA Clippers game and show no sign of slowing down. In a new interview with Rolling Stone magazine, Cabello reveals just how and when her friendship with Mendes evolved into a romantic relationship.

The two singers have been friends for years and worked on a song together in 2015 called “I Know What You Did Last Summer.” Cabello revealed that back then things were a bit awkward between them.

“During ‘I Know What You Did Last Summer,’ I really bonded with him as more than a friend. I think he did, too, but we were both really young, and he was experiencing the pressures of his career,” said Cabello. “I don’t think we knew what to do with those feelings. It was this awkward thing where we both liked each other, but we weren’t together. It was just weird.”

She also said that there was “an energy there from the beginning” but the pair “didn’t spend much time together’ after they released their 2015 hit song.

“Our paths just didn’t cross in that way romantically until we started hanging out again and writing [Senorita]. For me, it just brought it back,” said Cabello.

Mendes also confirmed the exact date their relationship became official during a recent fan Q&A event. He says they officially began dating on July 4th. They clearly are still in that adorable honeymoon phase of their relationship as they have no problem with PDA and showing people just how in love they are!
