Regarding rekindling old flames, Camila Cabello is open to the idea if conditions are right.

On a recent episode of Call Her Daddy, the 27-year-old pop sensation shared her honest feelings about the possibility of getting back together with an ex. Cabello confessed that her spontaneous nature has prompted her to reconnect with past partners. She revealed that she and Shawn Mendes briefly rekindled their relationship in spring 2023, two years after ending their romantic involvement in 2021.

"I'm actually quite supportive of the idea," the "Havana" artist commented on the podcast about reigniting past relationships, noting that she finds the approach "beneficial." "I can be quite impetuous in that respect," Cabello admitted. "If I'm feeling it, I'll express it. I struggle to hold back because the worst place for those thoughts is in my head, then I end up like Ryan Gosling in The Notebook, building a house for this person. I prefer to just say what I'm feeling and see what unfolds, even if it leads to waking up the next day to discover it's been widely covered."

Choosing to revisit her relationship with Mendes, the ex-Fifth Harmony star reflected, was a deliberate decision. "That's the path I chose," she elaborated, hinting at their temporary reunion last year after their initial romance from 2019 to November 2021. "It is what it is. It turned out to be a wonderful journey, a fun time. It was a memorable moment."

Cabello elucidated the reasons behind her and the "Mercy" crooner's decision to end their relationship once again. "It just becomes apparent that it's not a match, it doesn't feel right," she explained. "Fortunately, I was at a point in my life where I could quickly recognize that. We both realized sooner that it just didn't feel right, and we didn't need to force it to make it work. It's all good."

The "Shameless" singer further mentioned, "I will always hold him dear and love him. He’s an incredible person, and I'm fortunate because some people have terrible exes, but he's not one of them. He’s a genuinely kind and good person."

Speculations about their reconciliation began when they were seen together at Coachella in April of the previous year.

The brief reunion between Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes captured the public's attention, showcasing their attempts to rekindle their relationship. Spotted in various locations, including Venice, California, where they were seen holding hands, and in New York City, where Cabello was photographed leaving Mendes' apartment, the pair seemed to be exploring the possibility of reconnection. Sources at the time indicated that they were "very happy to be reconnected," signaling a hopeful phase in their relationship.

However, despite the moments of closeness and shared happiness, their reunion was short-lived. By mid-June, it was confirmed that the two Grammy-nominated artists had once again decided to part ways. An insider attributed the split to Mendes' journey of self-discovery and growth, emphasizing the need for personal space and time to pursue his own happiness and learn more about himself.

Cabello and Mendes initially ended their romantic relationship in November 2021, after two years together. Their relationship, which began as a deep friendship, blossomed into a romantic bond, highlighted by their collaboration on the hit song “Señorita.” Despite the end of their romantic involvement, they shared a joint statement on social media, affirming their continued love and respect for each other as humans and their intention to maintain their friendship. This mature approach to their breakup, along with their brief reunion, underscores the complexities of navigating relationships in the public eye and the personal growth both artists
