Why Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello Broke Up: ‘It Was Time to End Things’

Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello confirmed their breakup last night amid split rumors, but the two singers did not offer any insight into why they ended their two-year romance. Now, a source is giving a little background to Entertainment Tonight about what led them to decide it’s better to not date anymore.

It was both of them deciding it just didn’t work anymore, the source said: “Shawn and Camila’s breakup was mutual. They realized they are in totally different places in their lives at this point, and it was time to end things. They’re both sad about the split, but doing their best to take care of themselves, stay busy and surround themselves by loved ones.”

Mendes is 23, while Cabello is 24.

Mendes did reveal the two argued regularly in their romantic relationship though back in August, but things were still “really good” then.

“We definitely fight, and we get in like the worst little arguments, but like, I think that we definitely are pretty good at picking up on when it’s just ego talking,” Mendes told SiriusXM’s The Morning Mash Up. “And we usually like, call each other out. It’s we have a really honest and open relationship, but, but yeah, no, we definitely fight. I think like, especially like, I think the longer the relationship goes, it’s like the easier it seems to be to fight. So, yeah, it’s definitely not that holding hands all the time, but we’re really good with each other. It never gets bad. It’s always like a little fight.”
