Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello have fuelled rumours they’re more than just friends, after being photographed hand-in-hand while out together on Wednesday night.
The pair first sparked speculation of a romance when they teamed up on the track Senorita, for which they appeared in a steamy music video.
Camila’s subsequent split from boyfriend Matthew Hussey did little to halt the rumours, and images have now emerged of the potential new couple enjoying a cosy date night together in West Hollywood, California, on Wednesday.
The snaps, posted on Entertainment Tonight Canada’s website, showed 22-year-old Camila, wearing a sexy backless black jumpsuit, holding hands with In My Blood star Shawn, 20, who looked smart in a striped shirt and trousers.
The pair also spent the Independence Day holiday together on Thursday, with a short video clip shared from a pool party on Instagram Stories that showed Camila and Shawn cuddling up by the pool away from the rest of the revellers.
The former Fifth Harmony star previously revealed she had to “drink a lot of wine” to get some courage ahead of shooting the steamy Senorita video with Shawn.
In the video, the duo cuddled up in some intimate scenes as they acted out a night of passion between Camila’s diner waitress and Shawn’s customer, including a motorcycle ride, some sensuous dances and a night in a hotel.
“The whole music video was funny because we were both really nervous, I had to drink a lot of wine!” she laughed in a live chat ahead of the track’s release.
Camila and Shawn also gushed about their love for one another in the chat, with the stunning brunette smiling: “We’ve known each other for about four years now, and I really love Shawn as a person and he’s always been there for me.
I’m lucky I found someone like that early on when I started this. While Shawn gushed, “She is the most creative most fun most empathetic person I know! Working with her is a dream.”
