The couple had not been shown together on Instagram since November 1, during the celebration of the Day of the Dead. They both shared two photos and a video from that day. Therefore, the fans of the now ex-couple were shocked when they heard the news.

Previously, the singers had been publicly shown during the delivery of the VMA’s a few weeks ago. And during the performance of their smash hit “Señorita” they gave each other a passionate kiss while singing on stage in the middle of Central Park.

The secrecy with which they were handled at that time makes it difficult to stipulate the exact date of the beginning of the relationship. At the time, both Mendes and Cabello were reluctant to talk to the press about what they felt and whether their thing was serious or not. They were seen very much in love on the streets of Los Angeles or New York, but they avoided giving their word to the media.

His first collaboration was in 2015 with the theme “I Know What You Did Last Summer”, A story of heartbreak sung by two young people who, perhaps without knowing it, began to write their own story that was not formalized, at least publicly, until 2019. And with the sensual video of “Señorita” they recognized what all their fans suspected.

During an August appearance on Jimmy Fallon’s show, Cabello said that she and Mendes “they weren’t engaged “ after rumors of an engagement spread after she wore a ring on her left ring finger. In late 2020, they adopted a dog, named Tarzan, which Mendes took home to Canada when they returned to their hometown in Ontario to vacation with Cabello that year.

The two musicians had a love story that seemed like something out of a Hollywood romantic comedy. For years they were great friends, until in 2019 the friendship turned into love and they formally joined. From that moment on, they were one of the favorite couples on the music scene.

In the documentary “In Wonder,” which is about his life, Mendes said that Cabello was one of the reasons for his professional success.

“For four years we were just friends and we couldn’t see each other very often, until we finally got to be together. She was always there to take care of me as a human being. He supports me, and I think that’s what your partner is for ”, confessed the singer.
