Now that one of the most popular couples in the industry is possibly rekindling their romance, here’s Camila and Shawn’s quick relationship timeline for you.

First meeting

Most people will probably agree with the assumption that in almost every relationship, there is a meet-cute. In 2014, Shawn and Camila met on an Austin Mahone tour where the former Fifth Harmony member did an opening performance. During those times, Camila revealed that she wanted to hang out with Shawn, but did not have a chance because he was the kind of guy who spaces out with his guitar inside a tour bus.

First collab

It was in 2015 when the two officially collaborated through a song titled “I Know What You Did Last Summer,” which happened backstage at a Taylor Swift’s concert. While they did promo interviews for the song, Shawn shared that they only considered each other as close friends.

From friends to lovers

The friendship between Shawn and Camila didn’t stay platonic forever, and since the June 2019 release of “Señorita,” they became more public about their relationship than ever before. The song’s drop marked the start of their steamy interactions as a rumored couple. Proving this transition is Camila being spotted in the crowd of Shawn’s Miami tour. Also, close-up paparazzi shots were taken of the pair as they enjoyed the summer heat.

Later on, the Fifth Harmony alum declared her love for her then-beau on Instagram with the caption, “Happy birthday to this magic human, I love you!!!!”

Due to displaying affection in public, the former couple was not exempted from experiencing issues in the relationship as they also dealt with constant social media gossip. Despite all these, Shawn and Camila worked hard to keep the fire in their relationship. Apart from their sensual body language towards each other, what fans loved about their relationship was they managed to keep their friendship as its main foundation. 

From lovers to exes

After more than two years together, Shawn and Camila made headlines after they announced their break up on Instagram last November 2021. Several fans were shocked and saddened by the split as Shawn took to Twitter a story about his new life apart from Camila. Some of Shawn’s statements in the video included his reality of being alone. “Like, who do I call when I’m in a panic attack? Who do I call when I’m on the edge? I think that’s the reality that kind of hit me,” he candidly shared.

With that said, it just proves that their relationship was more than any type of rumored publicity as they became each other’s blanket amidst the chaotic world of Hollywood. Camila, on the other hand, shared in an interview that her decision was because of her mental health status during the pandemic. She was exhausted in many ways and likened her status to running in a marathon with a broken leg. 

From exes to?

More than a year after their split, eagle-eyed fans spotted Shawn and Camila hanging out at Coachella, quickly leading up to nothing but shock. The singers-slash-former lovers were spotted kissing in the crowd, which fired up rumors that the two are back in a romantic relationship.
