Shawn Mendes Just Said He’s SINGLE Amid Hailey Baldwin Dating Rumors

By  | 

Despite being spotted holding hands with Hailey Baldwin just last month, Shawn Mendes hit up the 2017 American Music Awards red carpet without the stunning model on his arm. This wouldn’t be totally shocking or anything, but the Canadian crooner left us stunned when he — wait for it — admitted that he is SINGLE during an interview. WHAT THA—?!

Just as we were starting to be convinced that Shawn and Hailey were, like, the real deal, the 19-year-old threw us a curveball. The “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back” singer was doing an interview on E!’s Live from the Red Carpet when host Jason Kennedy straight-up asked him if he had a girlfriend. Shawn stumbled a little bit but did, in fact, confirm that he’s single at the moment. He did, however, say “humor is the number one thing” he looks for in a girl.

If you remember, just last month Shawn and Hailey were said to be cozying up to each other at the Halloween party that the model hosted along with her BFFs, Kendall Jenner and Justine Skye. Not only that, but apparently, the two showed PDA inside the event and left together holding freakin’ hands.

According to Us Weekly, an eyewitness said, “At the end of the night, Hailey was with Shawn and they were holding hands and cuddling up to each other. They left together at the end of the night.” Certainly sounds like ~something big~ was happening between these two, at least at one point.

It’s pretty interesting that the former Vine star denied being in a relationship tonight, especially since sources were just saying that he “worships” the 20-year-old.

“It started out casual as they would run into each other at parties and hangout, but most recently it’s become more serious,” a source told E! News a few days ago. “They are definitely dating and spend a lot of time together. 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.”

Is Shailey a thing or not???? We are SO confused right now.
