Mendes and Cabello met in 2014 during a tour with Austin Mahone, the couple revealed during an interview with V magazine. Over the next few years, dating rumors began to swirl about them, but it wasn’t until 2019 that things seemed to heat up after the release of their hit song “Señorita.” The couple were spotted kissing in Miami soon after, and wound up showing a lot of PDA over the next few years.
In 2021, though, the duo called it quits. “Hey guys, we’ve decided to end our romantic relationship but our love for one another as humans is stronger than ever,” they announced in a joint statement on social media. “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.”
In April, they were spotted kissing at Coachella, sparking reconciliation rumors. In June, though, Entertainment Weekly reported that they’d broken up once again. A source told the outlet at the time that the pair “gave things a try, but ultimately the timing isn’t right for either of them.”
