After breaking hearts worldwide with the announcement of their split in November 2021, Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes have returned to instill some hope back in the people. Spotted locking lips at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival over the weekend, the internet was lit alight with excitement. What does this mean for the musical lovebirds? Are they officially back together? Here's all the intel we could gather in the immediate aftermath!
Taking it back to the very beginning, the two pop stars began dating in July 2019. After sharing some steamy moments on stage and hiding out together in Covid lockdown, the two jointly announced they had parted ways in November 2021. "Hey guys, we've decided to end our romantic relationship, but our love for another as humans is stronger than ever," they wrote on Instagram. "We started our relationship as best friends and will continue to be best friends. We so appreciate your support from the beginning and moving forward. Camila and Shawn." The #shawmila ship had seemingly sunk for good.
Since their split, the two have been romantically linked to various partners, most notably the rumored relationship between Shawn and Sabrina Carpenter. And then, just when we'd given up hope, the Señorita singers are seen embracing and kissing at the hottest music festival of the year. The two stood together among the crowds as if no one else was around, staring into each other's eyes intensely.
"They were flanked by bodyguards and had a big group around them. They weren't holding hands but stayed together all night," Eyewitnesses at the festival told Us Magazine. "They were at a VIP table, trying to stay out of sight. Camila was nuzzling her face into Shawn's shoulders, and they looked like a couple. They also kissed and were making out during Burna Boy's final song." Whether or not this steamy make-out means the two are back together is yet to be seen. Reps for both Shawn and Camila have refused to confirm or deny the apparent reunion, but we're keeping our fingers crossed in the meantime! Stay tuned.
