Rumours of romance between Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello have been heating up this week as the Canadian pop sensation, 20, and the former Fifth Harmony member, 22, were spotted holding hands in Hollywood on Wednesday.
While ET Canada yet to receive a response from the singers’ reps after reaching out for comment, it appears that Mendes is shutting down reports the two are an item.
In a video posted on Twitter by Pop Crave, Mendes is seen answering questions from fans, one of whom asks him point blank, “Are you dating Camila?”
Mendes responds by shaking his head emphatically, indicating the answer is no.
In the second part of the question, the fans asks Mendes, since he’s not dating Cabello, if he would date her.
“That was the best set-up,” Mendes quipped with a laugh. “I won’t,” he added. “I don’t know you, that’s why. I need to get to know you first.”
Mendes and Cabello have been denying romance rumours for years.
In fact, Mendes shut down dating rumours in a 2016 interview with Seventeen.
“She’s one of the sweetest girls I’ve ever met and super, super-smart,” he said. “We aren’t dating, but musically she just blows my mind.”
