Shawn Mendes Posts Pic with ~GF~ Hailey Baldwin & Fans Have Thoughts

By  | 

Shawn Mendes and Hailey Baldwin first sparked dating rumors after they were allegedly seen holding hands at a Halloween party last year. The rumored couple spent lots of time together in the months that followed and even showed some PDA right before Christmas. But then the “In My Blood” singer straight-up admitted that he was single and that’s where the confusion started.

We haven’t heard much on the Shailey front since 2018 began, but then the 19-year-old cutie made an appearance on Drop the Mic, which the 21-year-old hosts, last week, and speculation started heating up again.

The model shared some never-before-seen pictures of Shawn filming the show on her Tumblr yesterday and people freaked out.

But nothing compared to what happened after the Canadian crooner decided to share something, too, but chose to post a photo of himself and the blonde on Instagram with no explanation whatsoever.

Some fans immediately saw this as a confirmation of some sort of relationship.

Other, however, don’t think it’s right to assume the relationship status of two people just because they’re in a pic together.

And then you can’t forget about those who think Shawn and Hailey have ulterior motives.

“He’s a friend of mine and we hang out, so I see why people obviously want to make assumptions,” the blonde said of the dating rumors last month. “Any guy I hang out with people are like, ‘Oh, she must be dating him,’ or ‘Something’s going on,’ but I don’t ever really feel like I have to explain myself. It’s kind of my business and the other person’s business, so I guess nobody will ever really know.”
