Fans have been mixing up Camila Mendes and Shawn Mendes’ last names, leading them to believe the stars are related.
We’re here to explain the confusion and why some people might think this is the case.

Shawn is from Canada and is of Portuguese descent, whilst Camila is from the US and is of Brazilian heritage.
Camila has an older sister named Kiara Moreno, who posts regularly with the star.
Shawn’s younger sister is called Aaliyah, who he has previously branded on social media as his ‘best friend’.
