Shawn Mendes has opened up about his break-up with Camila Cabello. The two singers ended their two-year relationship in November last year. Mendes reflected on his life post-breakup while speaking about his new music in a video explaining lyrics that he posted to Twitter on Friday (18 March).
Mendes took to Twitter to share a short clip speaking about how life has been now that he is alone, and he mentioned he hates it. He expressed his feelings about not having someone to call when he is having a panic attack, or when he is ‘on the edge’. But mentioned that this was now his ‘reality’.
He said, “You don’t realise when you’re breaking up with someone … all the s*** that comes after it. Which is like, ‘Who do I call when I am in a panic attack? Who do I call when I am f***ing on the edge, you know?’ And I think that’s the reality that kinda I am on my own now after like… finally I am actually on my own and I hate that… that’s my reality, you know.
Mendes, 23, and Cabello, 24, began dating in July 2019, shortly after they released their hit single “Señorita” in June. In November 2021, the much-loved duo announced that they were splitting up, shocking their fans and followers. In a joint statement, they shared on their respective Instagram pages, “Hey guys we’ve decided to end our romantic relationship, but our love for one another as humans is stronger than ever,” their posts read.
