A Fan Divides Over Shawn Mendes Romance Rumours With Sabrina Carpenter After He Breaks His Silence
Shawn Mendes clarifies his relationship status with Sabrina Carpenter. Asked whether he was dating the “Nonsense” singer, the Grammy nominee denied the rumour in an interview with the Dutch television show RTL Boulevard: “We’re not dating.” Although Mendes and Carpenter did not walk the red carpet together, they both attended Vanity Fair’s Oscar party on Sunday. Several fans speculated Carpenter’s green David Yurman pendant was a nod to his birthstone, the emerald. On a walk in Los Angeles last month, the two enjoyed each other’s company. Celebrity gossip account Deuxmoi first reported the musicians were dating, sparking rumours of a romance. Following the release party for Endless Summer Vacation, they were seen leaving together on March 9. In response to Mendes’ denial of the dating rumours, the Internet reacted quirkily. Shawn Mendes’ comments ranged from fans cheering for Sabrina to sparking rumours that he was gay. One user wrote, Sabrina deserves better. One person commented cheekily, Omg guys he’s dating me, stop spreading rumours. Another fan mourned, and jokingly said We lost.
Another user commented, He’s not helping the gay accusations, to which another replied, He shouldn’t be ashamed of it. It is time for more men to follow. Some celebrities, such as Cavill, rumoured to be gay, have found new girlfriends to show off and then broken up when the rumours have died down. Shawn is free to do whatever the f**k he wants. Previously, Mendes was linked to singer-songwriter Camila Cabello. Following the release of “Senorita” in June 2019, they began dating. The two quarantined themselves together in Miami and adopted a dog called Tarzan. In a joint statement shared via Instagram on Nov. 17, 2021, they announced their separation. Previously, he was linked to High School Musical: The Musical: The Series actor Joshua Bassett.

In July 2022, she delivered her fifth studio album Emails I Can’t Send, which reported a portion of the love and heartbreak she went through the beyond two years as well as the public scrutiny she reportedly faced online.
