A source close to Camila Cabello said that it was Shawn Mendes who “initiated the conversation” with the former Fifth Harmony artist about the breakup last week. According to E! News, although a source described the Cinderella star as “very upset about the split,” they note that she “agreed” that it was for the best.
An insider said, “It was really hard for a few days, but she spent a lot of time with friends and was busy. She has a huge support system and now she feels renewed. ” As difficult as it was, the source shared that Camila and Sean “are still in touch and want to be friends,” adding that “it was not a bad breakup at all.” According to an insider, their romance simply came to naught: “The relationship was getting stale and smug, and they decided they were better off being friends.”
The 23-year-old Canadian and 24-year-old pop star made it clear that they were ending their two-year relationship on good terms when on Wednesday, November 17, they posted relevant statements on their respective Instagram Stories.
“Hey guys, we decided to end our romantic relationship, but our love for each other as people is stronger than ever. We started our relationship as best friends and will remain best friends, ”the singers wrote.
Although Sean and Camila have parted ways, they leave their romance with only the best memories and many valuable lessons. As recently as October, the Havana singer announced that she and Sean could help each other with their mental health.
She told the magazine that “for better or for worse,” they learned to be honest with each other about when it was time to talk to the therapist, explaining, “I’ll voice my opinion or rant about something, and he’ll be like: “Have you talked about this with X?” And I say, “No, I need to have a session.” And he will do the same to me. ”
According to E! News, in the process, Camila helped Sean with his indecision to show emotions. He told Dax Shepard that he had a tendency to restrain his feelings, and this habit only ended thanks to his relationship with Camila. As he put it, “Guys just need to be vulnerable. We need to cry. Stop thinking what it means to be brave and strong, and start thinking that the opposite is actually true. We are holding back these emotions, not crying and not … holes. Nothing good about that. “
