Camila Cabello is making her feelings for Shawn Mendes pretty clear amid reports the singer is getting closer to actress Chloe Grace Moretz.
As reported by Hollywood Life, Shawn and the Fifth Harmony star, who have long been rumored to be dating, exchanged some pretty flirty tweets on social media on October 14 after sources suggested that Mendes could be dating Moretz.
Shawn commenced the love fest on social media, tweeting out to Cabello amid the latest dating rumors, “.@camilacabello97 so incredibly proud of you. I love this!” alongside a link to Camila’s new duet with Machine Gun Kelly, “Bad Things.”
Camila then replied to Shawn’s gush by telling the “Stitches” singer, and the world, that she “loves” him.
“That means so much to me!!! love you Canada,” Camila then replied to Shawn, alongside three heart emojis.
Cabello’s big love confession came just one day after Shawn also exchanged some pretty flirty tweets with Chloe Grace Moretz, shortly after slamming rumors that he and Cabello were dating after months of speculation that the two, who collaborated on the duet “I Know What You Did Last Summer,” were a couple.
Mendes and Moretz exchanged some flirty tweets on the social media site earlier this week after Shawn shared a topless photo of himself from his recent photoshoot for L’uomo Vogue magazine on October 11.
Chloe then tweeted back a GIF to show her approval of the topless shot, sending Shawn a moving image of herself biting her thumb and blushing, to which Mendes replied, “Hahahahahahaha genius use of gifs x”
Hollywood Life then reported that the twosome’s flirty message could have been suggesting that the two could soon be dating, claiming that Mendes had had a crush on Moretz for some time after the two met at the 2015 American Music Awards last year.
“Shawn has had a crush on Chloe for the longest time,” an insider told the site. “In addition to being absolutely gorgeous, Shawn loves her quirky sense of humor and outspoken nature.”
“[Shawn’s] always had his eye on her,” the site’s source continued of Mendes’s feelings for Moretz. “It wouldn’t surprise me if he’s already asked her out on a date.”
But as the dating rumors swirled between Shawn Mendes and Chloe Grace Moretz, a number of social media users were quick to point out the timing of Shawn Mendes and Camila’s loving messages, tweeting out support for the two using Cabello and Mendes’s couple pseudonym, “Shawmila.”
“I ship Camila and Shawn NOT Chloe and Shawn,” Twitter user @AmeliaMD1 tweeted out, while @ughrjane wrote on the social media site amid the dating rumors, “SHAWMILA FEELS” alongside several heart emojis.
“If Camila and Shawn don’t date they’re dumb,” Fifth Harmony fan @KnewBetterMiIa added as the dating rumors swirled around both Mendes and Cabello and Mendes and Moretz. “They’re both talented, sweet and hot as f***. Plus they have great chemistry.”
Notably, rumors began to swirl around Shawn and Chloe just days after Mendes publicly shut down reports that he and Cabello were dating, or ever have dated, in an interview with People despite seemingly confirming just last month that he and Camila once kissed.
“A thing? No, we weren’t, actually,” Shawn responded when asked by the site about dating Camila, adding that he and Cabello, who E! News claimed were officially dating last year, were actually “just really close friends.”
“We’re not dating — nor did we,” Shawn told the site, just days before Hollywood Life hinted that Mendes could soon be dating Chloe Grace.
“[Camila] is one of those people who is just very easy to connect with and still, to this day, is one of my greatest friends,” Shawn continued, adding that he and Cabello had an “instant connection” when they first met.
“You find that instant connection with people, and she’s one of them,” Shawn said of Camila. “That’s a friendship that you have to hold on to forever.”
