Mendes officially put those ongoing romance rumors to rest at a Q&A event on Sunday (August 31), during which one fan asked the crooner: "You've said you've never been in love. Has that changed recently?"
The question may sound familiar to fans, as the "Lost in Japan" star admitted to Clash in 2017 that he'd "never actually truly been in love," but was optimistic about the day he'd write a song for "my girlfriend who I am truly in love with."
In answering the question, Mendes seemed to validate that he had found his other half with the "Havana" songbird. "Honestly, I wanna say I wanna talk to you guys about this stuff, but it's not just me in the relationship," he replied. "There's another person involved, and I can't say things that I feel. It's not just me deciding, you know?"

It’s not just me deciding you know?”#ShawnMendesTheTourUncasville pic.twitter.com/xyqP0I3r6h— Shawn Mendes Updates (@TrackingSM) August 31, 2019
Even without name dropping his beloved, Shawmila fans got the point and respected the Canadian artist for wanting to wait to address their relationship as a couple. "Matters of the heart, between two people, are sacred. Therefore, private. If Shawn and Camila wish to discuss their relationship they will do so on their own terms," one user tweeted.
This vow of secrecy might also explain why Cabello and Mendes didn't seal their live televised debut of "Señorita" at the 2019 MTV VMAs with that much-anticipated kiss celebrities and fans anticipated.
