We were a little shook last week when the news came that Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes decided to break up after two years together. But since then, it seems we’ve got a little insight into why they actually decided to part ways.

Announcing the news on Instagram last week, the pair wrote:

“Hey guys, we’ve decided to end our romantic relationship but our love for one another as humans is stronger than ever. We started our relationship as best friends and will continue to be best friends. We so appreciate your support from the beginning and moving forward. Camila and Shawn.”

Now, a source close to Camila has revealed that the break-up itself happened last week, with Shawn initiating the conversation about them parting ways.

Speaking to E! News, they shared that Camila was “very upset over the split,” but she “agreed” that it was probably the best thing to do.

“It was really hard for a few days but she has been spending a lot of time with friends and keeping busy,” they continued, before adding: “She has a huge support system and is feeling renewed now.”

Although both Camila and Shawn are serious about making their friendship work, that according to the insider it was “not a bad break up at all” and just came down to the relationship running its course.

“The relationship was getting stale and complacent and they decided they are better off being friends.”
