At the ripe age of 19 years old, Shawn Mendes has basically taken over the world. But in addition to performing at stadiums with Taylor Swift, selling out his own tours and winning awards, he somehow manages to stay a (somewhat) normal teenager who likes to hang out with friends, play guitar and go on dates.
The “Youth” crooner has been linked to his fair share of girls (and even a dude) over the years. And if the rumors hold true, Shawn certainly has a thing for the older ladies, which would also mean a couple of illegal relationships.
Though the word “badass” doesn’t necessarily come to mind when you hear the name Shawn Mendes (because he’s just too adorably sweet!), the looks of his supposed dating history beg to differ. See for yourself here:
Shawn has never confirmed he dated hometown friend Lauren Arendse, but fans widely acknowledge her as his girlfriend of two years that he often references. In fact, his song, “Three Empty Words” was reportedly written about her, which can be ~proven~ by the line about her little brother.
SM and LA went to prom together back in 2015 and the singer posted this adorable picture along with the caption, “Me and my beautiful prom date!”
Seems like they were legit, if you ask us!
At the core of this dating rumor, you’ll find none other than Shawn Mendes himself! Last summer he posted a song titled “Cameron Dallas” featuring another one of our favorite Vine hotties, Jack Gilinsky. The song is basically an ode to Cameron’s smile and “voluptuous” locks where he flat out says, “Cameron Dallas is my boyfriend.”
Okay, okay… when taken within the context, we’re about 95% sure that this was just the 19-year-old playing around, but there’s another 5% in us that thinks they would make a super cute couple.
If Shawn and Cameron are as good of bros as they appear to be, we can only hope that this rumor is false. Formally known has “Princess Lauren,” this social-media sensation allegedly had a fling with Cameron, which is why it would be the ultimate breaking of the bro code if she did get together with the “Youth” crooner like some fans think.
We’re wondering if everyone in the World of Vine/YouTube inter-dates because that would be the only reasoning behind this rumored duo. Sure, Shawn and Bethany Mota once ran in the same circles and most likely cross paths occasionally, but as far as romance goes, we don’t think there’s anything to these rumors. Despite all this, the Mendes Army would LOVE to see theses two together and there are countless fanfictions to prove it!
Taylor Swift 2018 reputation Stadium Tour
When Shawn and Taylor Swift toured together back in 2015, they formed a bond that goes beyond friendship. The Canadian crooner was even one of the chosen few at T.Swift’s December ’15 birthday party (still experiencing major fomo) and has stayed in touch with her ever since.
We know that Tay has a dating list that seems to grow on the reg, but we doubt she and Shawn were ever an item. This is mainly because there is a HUGE age gap of nearly 10 years between the two and they simply seem like BFFs.
People’s Choice Awards 2016 – Backstage And Audience
Camila Cabello, along with her Fifth Harmony gals, joined Shawn and Austin Mahone on a summer tour in 2014. Everyone knows all about the beef between Cam and Austin, but could there have been a Shawnmila fling, as well?
When given the choices of Camila, Chloë Moretz or Jade Thirlwall, the 19-year-old said he’d “probably wife Camila” because they’re so tight already. Then, when the pair collaborated on “I Know What You Did Last Summer” at the end of 2015, the dating rumors started flying hardcore.
But the celebs have said it time and time again — they’re just friends!!
Shawn’s relationship with Hailey Baldwin may seem confusing, but it’s actually not. The pair was first linked romantically after they were allegedly seen holding hands at a Halloween party last year and then picked up a couple months later when they were photographed getting cozy in his hometown over the holidays.
