Shawn Mendes finally comments on the Camila Cabello dating rumours in a new video.

Shawn Mendes has finally explained why he hasn't discussed his relationship with Camila Cabello publicly in a new video.

It's no secret that Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello appear to be dating. Ever since the they released their Number 1 song 'Señorita' in June, fans have speculated that the two stars are together. First there was that steamy 'Señorita' lyric, ('You say we're just friends/But friends don't know the way you taste'), then there were the pap pics and videos of them kissing and, last but not least, Camila essentially confirmed the rumours by saying she's fallen in love for the first time.

Shawn is currently in the middle of his self-titled world tour and, at a Q&A ahead of a recent concert in Connecticut (Aug 30), a fan asked him about his love life. They cheekily said: "You’ve said you’ve never been in love. Has that changed recently?” And, as opposed to ignoring the question and walking out, like he recently did when he was asked about the inspiration behind 'Señorita', Shawn actually gave a pretty candid answer.

Shawn responded to the question about his love life saying: “Honestly, I wanna… talk to you guys about this stuff but it’s not just me in the relationship.” He then explained: “There’s another person involved and I can’t say things that I feel. It’s not just me deciding you know?”

In other words, Shawn just confirmed that he's dating Camila but he's staying quiet to protect Camila and their relationship. No. I'm not crying you are.

Seeing as Camila is now tweeting things like: "Happy birthday to this magic human, I love you!!!!", Shawn's sentiment about keeping things between themselves may change. Regardless though, it's their relationship and they have every right to be as private about it as they like.
