"They had this intense relationship last year and spent months together during the lockdown in Miami. They both seemed very happy and looked like they enjoyed having a break from working," the source said. "Things are different now though. It's more back to normal life. They have careers that are taking them in different directions. They went from spending every day together to now not really spending any time together."
That would be hard on any couple, so understandable! And if you're wondering who initiated the split, a source previously told E! News that it was Shawn who got the convo going—but they both ultimately agreed it was for the best: "The relationship was getting stale and complacent and they decided they are better off being friends."
Shawn and Camila announced their split in a joint statement on November 18, saying, "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."
Reminder: Camila and Shawn began dating in July 2019 (after the music video for "Señorita" dropped and caused everyone to start speculating)—but they were BFF for years before then, so something tells us their plan to remain friends will actually work out.
