When you’re an A-list celeb, denying those pesky relationship rumors only lasts so long when a smartphone can turn even the most innocent of bystanders into an instant paparazzi. So when a fan spotted Shawn Mendes and Hailey Baldwin attending a concert together, it was only a matter of time before the footage reached the Twitterverse and reignited romance rumors that have been swirling around the two “friends” for months.
Mendes has been linked to Baldwin as early as August of this year when the model was spotted attending one of the singer-songwriter’s sold-out concerts. Following Baldwin’s public show of support for Mendes’ blossoming career, the duo were seen leaving an exclusive Halloween party hand-in-hand as well as “feverishly french kissing” each other at a 2017 MTV Europe Music Awards after party.
Despite the fact that #Shailey shippers have come through with the receipts, Mendes has repeatedly denied or deflected allegations of their rumored romance, even going on the record at the 2017 American Music Awards to state that he’s single.
However, it seems like Mendes’ continued denial is just a plea for privacy as the two were recently spotted cuddling up together while attending a Daniel Caesar concert in the singer’s hometown of Toronto.

With Baldwin, 21, nestled up close to her rumored beau with her head comfortably resting on his chest, the #Mendies were quick to celebrate the relationship confirmation on Twitter.

“Their relationship has grown and they don’t care if anyone sees them now,” said a source close to the “Treat You Better” singer. “Hailey is not one to make things a huge deal, but Shawn worships her. He is definitely considerate of her busy schedule and her feelings. They are really cute together.”
Whether or not the two are officially an item (although tbh, all signs point to yes) it looks like Baldwin is definitely over her nasty, public breakup with J-Biebs.
