“The [original plan] was that Camila would go back to Los Angeles with [Shawn] […] But they decided they needed to take a break from each other,” an insider told In Touch Weekly in a previous interview.
“Despite their busy careers, they’ve spent much of the past year together. They were in love and were best friends — they still are […] The past year was a whirlwind for them and they supported each other so much. Nothing really went bad between them, they just realised they need some time apart,” the source went on to say.
The statement triggered wide-spread panic among fans.
“DID SHAWN AND CAMILA REALLY BREAK UP?” asked a person.
“so shawn and a camila are taking a break?” tweeted somebody else.
Not everyone was phased by the unexpected turn of events, however.
“SHAWN MENDES AND CAMILA CABELLO ARE TAKING A BREAK?! CMERE SHAWN BABY I LOVE YOUUUU” wrote a person.
