Just days after Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello announced their breakup, People got more intel from a source about what went into their decision to end their two-year romance. The quarantine and coronavirus pandemic played a big role in their fate as a couple and why things stopped working, the outlet’s source explained.
“They had this intense relationship last year and spent months together during the lockdown in Miami,” the source said. “They both seemed very happy and looked like they enjoyed having a break from working. Things are different now, though. It’s more back to normal life. They have careers that are taking them in different directions. They went from spending every day together to now not really spending any time together.”

Last week, E! revealed it was Mendes that started the talk that led to their breakup. A little over a week ago, Mendes “initiated the conversation” with Cabello, the outlet’s source said. Although she was “very upset over the split,” she “agreed” it was for the best, that source added.
“The relationship was getting stale and complacent and they decided they are better off being friends,” E!’s source said.
Entertainment Tonight was also told by a source that the breakup wasn’t one-sided. “Shawn and Camila’s breakup was mutual,” the source said. “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.”
In joint statements, Cabello and Mendes emphasized their intention to remain friends:
Hey guys, we’ve decided to end our romantic relationship but our love for one another as humans is stronger than ever ❤️
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
