Camila Cabello is gushing over longtime friend and duet partner Shawn Mendes.
Camila was asked about her relationship with Shawn in a new interview with Radio Disney, where she sweetly revealed that she “loves” the Canadian singer after the two have repeatedly shut down dating rumors due to their close friendship.
Speaking about the “There’s Nothing Holding Me Back” singer in the new interview, Camila revealed that she loves Shawn like a brother. She also confirmed that she and Mendes are still very close after getting to know each other during a joint tour between Mendes, Fifth Harmony, and Austin Mahone back in 2015.
“I love him, he’s like my brother. I love him,” Cabello said of Shawn during the radio interview, revealing that Mendes has been throwing his support behind her solo music venture after she left Fifth Harmony back in December.
“He was super nice and super encouraging,” Cabello continued of the support she’s received.
Camila’s sweet words about her friend come shortly after the duet partners reunited on Snapchat on February 15 after the twosome – who hadn’t been spotted together for a while – took to social media to post a snap of themselves enjoying some quality time together while seemingly waiting for an appointment at the doctor’s office.

Cabello posted the photo with Mendes to her Snapchat account, telling her fans that she and the singer were “reunited at Dr. Nasseri’s.”
Shawn and Camila have been sharing sweet messages ever since Cabello confirmed her plans to go solo last year. Mendes sent his “I Know What You Did Last Summer” a message of support on Twitter in the wake of her solo announcement.
Quoting Camila’s confirmation that she was leaving the group late last year, Shawn told her via social media, “‘Pursue what makes your heart pound, happiness is our responsibility’ beautifully said.”
Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes have constantly spoken out about their sweet friendship ever since they grew close in 2015. They have also repeatedly shut down rumors that their platonic relationship is anything more than that.
Both Mendes and Cabello have been hit by numerous dating rumors over the past few years after E! News alleged in late 2015 that the two were officially dating after growing close on tour.
However, both Camila and Shawn have hit back at the dating rumors, with the Canadian singer most recently quashing the dating allegations by confirming once and for all that he and Cabello are not and have never dated.
Shutting down the dating rumors, Mendes made it pretty clear to People that he and Cabello had never been romantic. However, he couldn’t help but gush over their close friendship.
“We’re just really close friends. She is one of those people who is just very easy to connect with and still, to this day, is one of my greatest friends,” Mendes said of the former Fifth Harmony star back in October, admitting that he and Camila had an “instant connection” when they first met.
Mendes even went on to tell the site that he’s hoping to get back in the studio with Cabello following the success of their hit duet “I Know What You Did Last Summer,” which earned Shawn and Camila acclaim from around the world.
“Even if we just wrote for other people, I would be happy to do that because she’s such a thrill to write with and work with,” said Shawn, calling Camilla Cabello a “f***ing great writer.”
While Cabello hasn’t revealed if she and Shawn have collaborated again recently – even just in the writing room – Camila has revealed that her much-anticipated debut solo album is coming soon.
Camila confirmed the news with an emotional post on Instagram earlier this week, giving fans an insight into her first solo album, The Hurting The Healing The Loving, which she described as being “the story of my journey from darkness into light.”
