Shawn Mendes and Hailey Baldwin had a casual relationship for a few months between October 2017 and May 2018. They attended the 2018 Met Gala together, although both denied dating rumors.
In November 2018, during an interview with Rolling Stone, Mendes admitted that there was some romance happening, but said “I don’t even wanna put a title on it. I think it was more of a zone of limbo.”
He also shared that even though Hailey got engaged to Justin like a month after they took their situationship public, he’s not bitter about it.
“I get it, you know. I texted Hailey, ‘Congratulations,’ and I really am happy for them. She’s still one of the f*cking coolest people ever — she’s not just a beautiful person visually, but she’s one of the most beautiful hearts I’ve ever met,” he gushed.
Shawn then finishes the interview, saying cryptically: “I think I’m an idiot to not, you know. . . . But you can’t control your heart.”
