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

Shawn Mendes Stans need to wake up and realize that they won’t marry Shawn. I hope he dates Hailey Baldwin, proposes, and marries her one day so that you’ll scream, cry, and throw a fit

Other, however, don’t think it’s right to assume the relationship status of two people just because they’re in a pic together.
This isn’t a shawn update but this is needed to be said! Can everyone please leave Hailey Baldwin ALONE! The poor girl hasn’t done anything wrong! Like i’m sorry she’s friends with shawn and they’ve been seen out together in public like can’t friends go out & get lunch together?

I’ll admit, Hailey Baldwin isn’t my favorite person in the world but I’m not going to judge her or hate on her. WHO CARES IF SHES HOSTING A SHOW WITH SHAWN AS A GUEST. We all just have to deal with it and MOVE ON thank you very much.

There’s literally no reason to hate on Hailey for posting those pics of Shawn, nor for liking his pics, nor for being around him, nor for breathing. They’re friends and they like each other as such. You should get over it for your own health.

stupid ass shawn mendes fans trying to come for hailey with no real receipts lmao they’re all fake and photoshopped but go off i guess
— j (@nhaileybaldwin) April 4, 2018
And then you can’t forget about those who think Shawn and Hailey have ulterior motives.
The gag is that Shawn and Hailey was most likely a PA Stunt so y’all don’t have to keep crying over the fact that he was with her.

A theory: Shawn recorded the music video of Lost In Japan and Hailey is in it.

“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.”
