Camila Cabello had fans asking if she’s friend-zoned boyfriend Shawn Mendes again after she called him ‘my best friend’ when watching the trailer for his new Netflix documentary.

Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes took six years to crank their friendship up to a romantic level, becoming boyfriend and girlfriend in summer last year and staying strong ever since.

However, when Camila excitedly shared a clip of Shawn’s documentary when it appeared at the top of her Netflix homepage she had fans joking she’d friend-zoned him all over again.

Of course, besotted Camila was definitely not implying they’re back to where they first began but that didn’t stop some hilarious reactions from her Twitter followers.

It all kicked off when she tweeted: “Crazy getting into bed & seeing this on the tv!!! Das my best friend !!! I love you @ShawnMendes so proud of you & how vulnerable, beautiful, open & honest you are in this documentary & in every moment!

Another person added a meme of a man laying on the beach, writing in the caption: “Shawn when you friendzoned him again.”

“Notchu friendzoning him even after all these years [sic],” replied another follower.

Shawn and Camila became more than friends last year, after growing even closer when they teamed up for their second collaboration ‘Señorita’.

After months of facing claims their relationship was a PR stunt, the couple put a firm end to the doubts when Camila appeared in Shawn’s Netflix film, proving just how loved up they really are.
