Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello have not fully reconciled yet, no less than in line with tabloid reports. But their exploration of their relationship is ongoing—and it’s going well enough that they are going to hold hands in public. Paparazzi captured the pair hand-in-hand in Recent York City on Tuesday. Each wore jeans, with Mendes wearing a dark tank top and Cabello wearing a leather jacket and white crop top. The 2 musicians were on a coffee date, per TMZ.
The sighting this week comes a couple of month after a source told Entertainment Tonight on April 25 that Mendes and Cabello are determining whether or not they should try dating again. “Shawn and Camila aren’t officially back together, but they’re having fun with one another’s company and seeing where things go,” the source said.

Mendes and Cabello first sparked romance rumors again after they were filmed kissing at Coachella in mid-April. Entertainment Tonight’s source acknowledged on the time that there was nothing too serious behind the festival PDA.
“After they met up and kissed at Coachella, they were having fun and being within the moment together,” the source said. “They’re each interested in one another and care about each other loads. They’re having fun.”
Cabello and Mendes were friends before they dated for 2 years. They announced their breakup in November 2021 with a joint statement. They wrote: “Hey guys, we’ve decided to finish our romantic relationship but our love for each other as humans is stronger than ever ❤️ We began our relationship as best friends and can proceed to be best friends. We so appreciate your support from the start and moving forward ❤️❤️❤️ Camila and Shawn.”
