The statement concluded appreciated their fans for their overwhelming support and love from the start before signing off as “Camila and Shawn.” The shocking split comes more than two years after the pair began dating.
Shawn and Camila’s romance first made headlines in 2019, and the release of their joint hit song, “Senorita,” only fueled the romance. However, the pair initially denied the speculations, making fans label it as a publicity stunt.

Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the lovebirds quarantined together in Miami, proving that their relationship grew stronger by the second. Since getting together, Camila and Shawn have shared several heartwarming details about their romance.
Shawn Helped Camila With Anxiety Eating
In October, Camila credited the “Treat You Better” singer for helping her overcome her struggle of binge eating. The “Havana” singer, on the cover of Glamour Magazine, shared that Shawn was her ultimate support system.
She noted that the Canadian artist helped her be vulnerable with her anxiety while remaining patient with her. She explained, “I have this pattern of eating a lot when I’m anxious or uncomfortable. It’s a comfort thing for me. I’ll just kind of become unconscious and zombie-eat a lot, and then I’ll feel sick.”
She recalled that she found herself binge eating again at the VMAs party and spoke to Shawn about it. Sharing his response said, “And he was like, ‘It’s okay. You’re doing it. That’s okay. Let’s just take a breath and not do that. It’s really good for me to be able to talk about my patterns with someone.”
