Announcement: The 23-year-old Canadian hitmaker revealed the news on Instagram, writing that he and the 24-year-old songstress have ‘decided to end our romantic relationship

‘Hey guys, we’ve decided to end our romantic relationship but our love for one another as humans is stronger than ever,’ the singers wrote. ‘We started out relationship as best friends and will continue to be best friends.’ 

In photos obtained exclusively by DailyMail.com earlier this month, the pair looked very much in love as they shared a passionate kiss on the shore. 

The pair first met in 2014 while serving as supporting acts for Austin Mahone’s Live On Tour’ concerts and Camila was at the time still a member of the X-Factor derived girl group Fifth Harmony.

Instantly connecting, the pair decided to collaborate on a song, titled I Know What You Did Last Summer, which was released in November 2015.

The rumors went into overdrive when the pair dropped the steamy music video for their second collaborative single Senorita in June of 2019. 

The music video captured several ultra romantic moments between the supposed ‘friends,’ including one scene that saw Shawn rip off his shirt as he sang just inches away from Camila’s face.

Though the pair would officially confirm their romance in August, Camila and Shawn were photographed kissing on a number of occasions in the weeks leading up to the confirmation.
