Camila Cabello apparently wasted no time in showing herself off again.
The singer-songwriter is back on the dating scene following the alleged collapse of her rekindled — and short-lived — romance with Shawn Mendes. The former couple, who first met in 2014, sparked reconciliation rumors in April when they were snapped at Coachella. Several sources claimed that the couple practically lived together after the six-week reconciliation.

Even though Cabello and Mendes have been seen together in public several times since their fling in April, it looks like their romance is officially over. PEOPLE confirmed that the “Bam Bam” hitmaker is is already in a relationship with someone else after she and Mendes’ last-ditch attempt to save their relationship failed.
A source told the outlet that the former couple decided to give their romance another chance after their first breakup because they “always seemed to have a special connection” while remaining “friendly for months.” Similarly, The Blast documented another insider speaking out:
“Shawn and Camila have a long history and they tested the waters again after coming back into each other’s lives. But that was just a blip, and now they’ve put an end to it.”
The source added that the exes “realized that it was probably a mistake to rekindle things” and that “things ended between them for a reason in the first place.” They also pointed out that the former Fifth Harmony singer and the 24-year-old Canadian “knew” that they “were not right for each other romantically and now they just want to move on.”
While neither party has spoken out about the chat following their relationship in recent months, it’s worth noting that they released a joint statement when they first called it quits in November 2021. Then they wrote the following:
“Hey guys, we’ve decided to end our romantic relationship, but our human love for each other is stronger than ever ❤️ . We started our relationship as best friends and will continue to be best friends.”
Months later, Mendes hinted at how he handled the breakup in a vulnerable video he shared with his Twitter followers. In the clip, the “Treat You Better” singer revealed that there was an untitled song that touched his feelings, stating:
“A lot of things that I also like that resonate in the lyrics for me are like… oh f**k… You know, you don’t realize when you break up with someone… you don’t realize all the s**t that doesn’t come after.”

The dark-haired man took another vulnerable step when he unexpectedly dropped a new song, “What the Hell Are We Dying For?” with title. on Friday, June 9. The tune caused a huge stir online, with fans immediately trying to dissect the inspiration behind the lyrics and how they related to Cabello.
The “Senorita” hitmaker took to Instagram to announce the release of the single. writing, – ARE WE DYING FOR THE SAINTS? WHO NOW. I started writing this song with my friends in upstate New York yesterday morning and just finished it a few hours ago. I felt it was important to share it with you in real time ♥️♥️.”
Although parts of the song referred to the wildfires in her native country, and the lyrics encouraged people to donate to the Canadian Red Cross, several people said she used the sad event to talk about her breakup. In the words of one fan:
“Shawn I love you but are you fr?? I’ve been a fan since I was 9 and I just can’t believe you would use this tragic event to write a breakup song?”
“I mean I love Shawn but he prolly should have left the recent tragic events out of a song about Camila. at this point the song’s profits should go to the Red Cross/at least to fight the climate crisis,” another person commented.
A third suggested: “Did you start the forest fires to promote your album? Be honest,” and a fourth asked why he aestheticizes people who “die in wildfires and get sick from bad air quality.”
A person on Twitter he pondered“So you’re going to use a climate crisis to release a breakup song about Camila Cabello… ikyfl,” and a second he argued that Mendes was “so frivolous as to frame this as a climate action song and it’s literally just about Camila Cabello.”
