Camila Cabello Spilled All The Deets On Shawn Mendes... And Drake

I have two Roman Empires: Camila Cabello’s Coachella reunion night with Shawn Mendes and her vacation photos with Champagne Papi. As a Harmonizer turned Camilizer, I’ve spent a large percentage of my life listening to this woman’s flawless pop music and watching her iconic interviews and performances. I’ve been there through “I Know What You Did Last Summer,” her friendship with Shawn, their years of adorable flirting, and finally, the dating x “Señorita” era. (That almost-kiss at the 2019 VMAs still gets me.)

When Shawmila announced their breakup in 2021, my heart stopped. My jaw was on the floor. I genuinely thought these two were endgame. But the love story didn’t end there! They had the steamiest Coachella 2023 reunion followed by a date night at the Eras Tour and some gallivanting around New York City. Devastatingly, round two of the romance was short-lived. Then, Camila appeared to be moving on with Drake after she and the rapper were photographed in Turks and Caicos. So, why did Camila and Shawn break up — and, uh, is she dating Drake?? Here’s all the tea she spilled on Call Her Daddy.

You may recall Camila and Shawn’s major PDA moments at Coachella in April 2023. How did that night come to be? Camila admitted to Alex Cooper that she’s in favor of getting back together with exes. “I, personally, I think it’s known, I’m a fan,” she joked, explaining that it can be “helpful.” The singer added, “I’m kind of impulsive in that way, I would say. If I feel it, I say it and I’m not really good at not doing that. Because the worst place for it to live is my mind, and then I’m like Ryan Gosling in The Notebook, building a house for this person.” Real.

She acknowledged the billion TikTok videos of their reunion. “I would rather say it and see what happens, and then wake up the next day and find out that it’s been heavily documented,” she said on the podcast. “I opted for that route. It is what it is. It was a great route, it was a fun time. It was a fun moment.” Hey, girlies just wanna have fun.

Why Did Camila Cabello And Shawn Mendes Break Up A Second Time?

It seems like the sparks just weren’t there anymore. Sobbing. “You’re just kind of like, it’s not a fit, it doesn’t feel right,” Camila told Alex. “And I think, luckily, I was in a place in my life where it took me less time to realize that. It took us both less time to be like, ‘This doesn’t feel right and we don’t need to try so hard to make it work. It’s all good.’” I daresay the silver lining is… Shawn is available and needs new songwriting material.

“I will always care about him and love him. He’s such a good person and I’m lucky because some people have exes that are awful, and he is not. He’s a really kind, good person.”

Thank goodness we got some details about the Turks and Caicos getaway with the “God’s Plan” rapper. “It was vacation plus some work,” Camila revealed. But then she WINKED and took a sip of her wine. Ummm, what does that mean? “I love that man,” she said. “I love him.” When Alex pressed her about romance rumors, Camila replied cheekily, “Have I ever had what? A beautiful artistic collaboration with him? I may or may not have.” She giggled.

Apparently, their **friendship** started when Camila slid into Drake’s DMs, wanting him to hear her album. He loved it, so they started… collaborating? hanging out as BFFS? Dating? It’s very unclear. But a Camila and Drake song would absolutely slap.
