They added, “We started our relationship as best friends and will continue to be best friends. We appreciate your support from the beginning and moving forward”.
Mendes and Cabello, ever since making their relationship official, never shied away from expressing their love for each other. During joint appearances or events, they were often seen indulging in PDA and used to share lovey-dovey pictures on social media as well. Take a look at a few pictures here:
While the musicians have decided to remain best friends, their fans are not at all happy with this development. Not just Cabello and Mendes, we have found out other singer couples as well who were once together and ended their relationship leaving everyone in shock.
Rihanna and Chris Brown
Long before being linked romantically, the pair first met each other as teenagers in 2005 when they were just starting out in the music industry. After the success of Rihanna’s Umbrella, Chris teamed up with her for the first time on a remix. Later, they even performed the remix version during her Asia tour and people could see their on-stage chemistry. Later, in 2008, it was finally revealed that the duo was dating each other.
However, in 2009, everything changed. As per reports, a night before the 2009 Grammys, Chris brutally assaulted Rihanna and left her with multiple bruises. He was then arrested and was sentenced to five years of probation. Rihanna even filed for a restraining order, according to which, Chris wasn’t allowed within 50 years of her.
Several years later, RiRi forgave Chris and dropped the restraining order in 2011. They rekindled their romance in 2012 and broke up again in 2013. After their split, both of them moved on with other partners.
Rihanna and Drake
In 2009, the duo was first spotted together after which their relationship rumours started doing the rounds on social media. In 2010, Drake confirmed that they were together for a brief period. However, later in the same year, they collaborated for What’s My Name and rekindled their love. Then, in 2011, they parted ways again. Rihanna and Drake again teamed up for the song Take Care and their fans were happy to see them together. But, they stated that they were just friends.
Later, in 2014, the love birds were again snapped together holding hands. Till 2017, the pair was in a happy space together, however, they soon went separate ways. Since then, they haven’t yet collaborated.
Miley Cyrus and Nick Jonas
As per Miley Cyrus’ autobiography, Miles To Go, she met Nick in 2006 for the first time and they immediately hit it off. In 2007, the Disney heartthrobs were pretty serious about each other and were spotted together at various events. As mentioned by Cyrus in the book, she and ‘her Prince Charming’ parted ways on 19 December 2007 which was the hardest day for her.
Even after ending their relationship, Miley and Nick had to cross paths several times due to professional reasons. A year after their split, they were snapped having lunch together which sparked rumours of the reunion. However, eventually, she ended up dating Liam Hemsworth and they exchanged wedding vows in 2018 after being together for years. Liam and Miley then parted ways in August 2019 and finalised their divorce in January 2020. On the other hand, Nick is happily married to Priyanka Chopra.
