Separation from Shawn Mendes: For the first time, she talks about the reasons
The fans were horrified when the news got around a few days ago that Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes had split up. For two years they were the dream couple in the international music scene, now their love for each other has died – at least the romantic one. In human terms, love is greater than ever before, both say. They want to become best friends again, as they were before their relationship.
For the first time, Camila Cabello, 24, spoke about the real reasons for breaking up with her boyfriend, Shawn Mendes, 23, as part of her collaboration with Apple Fitness + and her “Time to Walk” program.
Camilla Cabello talks about her mental problems
The origin lies with herself, in her mental health, which was endangered for a long time by the enormous workload as a musician.
“Before the pandemic, I felt really burned out. I’ve worked practically non-stop since I was 15. And with the harshness I started working with, there was just no free time. I was hardly home. I didn’t have time to get to know me outside of my career. […] I was just exhausted in every way and at that point felt like I was running a marathon with a broken leg. I kept going, but it was extremely tough.
The corona pandemic changed everything
Camila had a strong need for a break, but couldn’t bring herself to do it. Then the pandemic came and made the decision to step on the brakes for her. All of this came too quickly for the 24-year-old.
“I felt so scared, paralyzing fearful. I just felt very unstable and confused because suddenly this thing that was distracting me, my work and filming, was no longer there. And so I was just left with my fear and my mind back. And that got in the way of my relationship. It got in the way of my friendships, my time at home. “
The singer got out of this crisis by asking for help and reorganizing her life. She started meditating, exercising, and changing her diet. In addition, Camila took more time for social contacts and friendships again. Only one relationship could ultimately not save Camila, the romantic one with Shawn Mendes.
