Fans of Becky G and Austin Mahone were definitely caught by surprise when the “Shower” singer shared that their relationship is only on “pause.” While they previously confirmed that they broke up for good back in August, it seems like they are willing to give their relationship another chance.
As Becky G graced the cover of Latina‘s March, 2016, issue, the singer opened up about her relationship with Austin Mahone, her debut album and her acting stint as Valentina Galindo on FOX’s Empire.
The “Break A Sweat” singer shared that they had to sacrifice a couple of things to make their relationship work. She, however, pointed out that it was definitely fun and exciting during the early stages.
“I thought, ‘OMG, I’m living the teenage dream, a pop star dating a pop star.’ “
Unlike other celebrities who chose to hide their relationships, in an attempt to protect themselves from the media, Becky G and Austin Mahone decided that they wanted to share what they have with the fans. She explained that they did not want to play games and wanted to be open on what is going on with their lives.
After only a couple of months, the couple decided to end their relationship. They both insisted that there is no third party involved, adding that they just wanted to focus on their respective careers.
Becky G shared that they both did not want to stay in a relationship only to hate each other in the end. The singer, however, hinted that they may eventually get back together soon, after all their issues have been resolved.
“We both knew what was coming in our careers, and that we just have to press pause for now. Yeah. Keyword: pause.”
After the break up, Austin has been linked to several women, including Katya Henry, a fitness model and trainer from Miami. He even shared a photo of them together in front of Cinderella’s Castle in Disney World. The two definitely looked cozy, with with Mahone’s arms wrapped around his new girl.
Although Becky G hinted that she and Austin Mahone are only on a break, it seems like the “Mmm Yeah” singer has moved on. Early this week, J-14 reported that Austin and Katya rented an entire theater for themselves for a romantic date.
When asked how she felt about Austin finding someone new, Becky G admitted that it was difficult at first. She, however, added that she would not stand in his way.
“When you let go of it, you’ve got to let go. As tough a pill as it is to swallow—if he finds happiness in another person, then it just is what it is.”
Speaking to Seventeen magazine, Becky G shared that she took the break up hard, especially since she has always been open to fans about how happy they were as a couple. The singer said that Austin has been nothing but amazing and inspiring, but the timing was just not right for the both of them. She explained that they had to focus on their priorities, especially their career.
“We had so many dreams and aspirations before we started dating and you can’t forget those. Honestly, it sucked really bad, but he’s so awesome and there’s no bad blood,” she explained.
While Becky seemed to have nothing but love for his ex-boyfriend, Hollywood Life pointed out that their recent tweets proved otherwise. In January 7, Becky tweeted, “Honestly I can’t be mad … I may have to tip my hat.” The outlet speculated that the singer may just be trying to throw some shade at Austin and his new girlfriend.
Interestingly, Mahone soon tweeted, “Don’t be sad that it’s over, be happy that it happened.” Becky G, however, had to have the last word and tweeted, “Throwing shade like its sunny.”
