We don't know about you guys, but our worst nightmare has just come true: the iconic pop couple that is Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello have called it quits. And we've got the full story for you.

The breakup announcement comes after more than two years of Cabello and Mendes romance, which brought about some seriously repeat-worthy tracks in addition to adorable Instagram posts. But all that has come to an end, following their joint statement they dropped on their Instagram stories earlier this week. "Hey guys, we've decided to end our romantic relationship," they each shared on their social media accounts. "But our love for one another as humans is stronger than ever."

The two musicians had a fairytale-like romance, that first kicked off as a platonic friendship. From touring with Taylor Swift to hyping each other's music up, Camila and Shawn raised the BFF bar way before they even caught the feels. And it seems they're hoping to keep that same connection moving forward. "We started our relationship as best friends and will continue to be best friends," the Señorita duo continued to share on their joint statement. But it wouldn't be a heartfelt message from Camila and Shawn without a little love for their loyal fanbase...

"We so appreciate your support from the beginning and moving forward," the pair of exes wrote, followed by three heart emojis. Despite how devastated we were to hear about the split, Cabello and Mendes were there to remind us that this was one seriously amicable breakup. No red scarves, no #teamcamila or #teamshawn, you guys. Just two loving people who decided they were better off as pals. And TBH, we couldn't be more proud of them! It can't be easy breaking up in the public eye, but Camila and Shawn are showing how to do it as kindly and lovingly as possible.
