In 2017, Camila Cabello had everyone singing along to her incredibly successful hit song – Havana. Between that and her dramatic exit from Fifth Harmony, it is safe to say 2017 was the year everyone knew her name and ever since, her fame has continued to grow.
With more successful music, modelling gigs and her rumoured relationships (especially with Shawn Mendes), Camila Cabello has become a certified celebrity. Here’s more information about her life, her dreams and everything in between.
Camila Cabello Bio
Camila Cabello was born to Alejandro Cabello and Sinuhe Estrabao and on the 3rd of March, 1997 in Cojimar, Eastern Havana, Cuba. Her mother is from Cuba while her father is from Mexico. For her early years, Camila and her family alternated between Havana and Mexico City before they relocated to Miami when she was five.
Growing up in Miami, Florida, she attended the Miami Palmetto High School but she left school in the 2012-2013 school year to pay more attention to her singing career. However, she made the effort to gain her high school diploma, of which she has been successful.
Her decision to pay more attention to her music career also paid off seeing as she is considered one of the biggest pop stars in the world alongside Ariana Grande, Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez and the rest.
Career Beginnings and Rise to Fame
Camilla got her start in the music industry when she auditioned for The X Factor. For her audition, she sang Aretha Franklin’s ‘Respect’, although the audition never aired because The X Factor was unable to get rights for the song. Unfortunately, she was eliminated during the ‘bootcamp’ stage of the competition.
However, in a lucky twist of events, she was called back to form an all-female pop group alongside Lauren Jauregui, Ally Brooke, Dinah Jane and Normani Kordei. The female group would later become popularly known as Fifth Harmony. Despite finishing third place, the group were able to sign a deal with Simon Cowell under his Syco Music label.
As a member of Fifth Harmony, she released Better Together (an EP), Reflection (an Album) and 7/27 (an album) with the group. Their albums featured hit songs like Worth It and Work From Home. During her time in the group, Camilla’s star began to shine and continued to rise over the years. However, on the 18th of December, 2016, Fifth Harmony officially announced that Camilla had left the group.
Since then, she has worked as a solo artist and has developed a successful solo career with hit songs such as Havana, Crying In The Club and Never Be The Same. She has also featured on songs by other artists such as Bad Things by Machine Gun Kelly and I Know What You Did Last Summer by Shawn Mendes
Relationship with Shawn Mendes
Despite consistent rumours of their supposed relationship, Shawn Mendes and the Havana singer have consistently insisted they are just friends. The two have frequently shared certain details of the friendship online, posting photos and sending supportive messages – this occasionally only serves as fuel for their fans who wish they were together.
The pair wrote their hit song, I Know What You Did Last Summer during a Taylor Swift show where they both performed. At the time, Camilla was still with Fifth Harmony and she performed with her band. Since then their relationship has only grown and they both now identify as each other’s BFF.
However, considering how affectionate their relationship is, fans continue to hold out hope that they will eventually get together despite the two regularly dating other people. But to be honest, currently, the possibility of a relationship between the two does not seem that farfetched and is entirely plausible.
Who’s Camila’s Boyfriend, Is She Dating Anyone?
Camilla has made the effort to keep her relationships and boyfriends very close to the vest, as she likes to keep her personal life private. However, some of her relationships have managed to make the news.
From 2013 till 2014, Camila was in a confirmed relationship with a fellow pop singer, Austin Mahone who got his start by posting videos on YouTube before becoming a pop star.
In 2015, the songstress was rumoured to be dating Michael Clifford, an Australian musician and drummer, who gained fame as a member the boy band 5 Seconds Of Summer.
In January 2018, Camila was confirmed to be in a relationship with noted relationship guru, Matthew Hussey, who is ten years her senior. Matthew is also a British Television personality and writer for Cosmopolitan Magazine. Their relationship came to light after photos of the private getaway in Mexico emerged online.
