We’re all dying to know…what in the world is going on between Shawn Mendes and Hailey Baldwin?! Are they dating? Are they just friends? Well, it seems like our questions may be answered very soon because the singer just got real about his relationship with the model, and honestly, we just don’t know what to think anymore.

In case you missed it and have been living under a rock, rumors have been swirling around the possibility that Shawn and Hailey have been dating since, like, October of last year. However, even though there were multiple reports of the two getting cozy at Kylie Jenner‘s Halloween party, going out on a few date here and there, the two never confirmed whether or not Shailey is the real deal.

Anyway, fast forward to this past Monday and the rumored couple made their red carpet debut at this year’s Met Gala. The fact that they showed up at the carpet TOGETHER led many fans to believe that this was the relationship confirmation we’ve all been waiting for and that the two are REALLY dating. Like, really really.

Unfortunately, that happiness that fans felt was short lived and if you haven’t heard yet, well, what we’re about to say will probably break your hearts. In a recent interview with W magazine, the 19-year-old did open up about his relationship with Hailey. However, he strongly insisted that the two are nothing more than a couple… of besties.

“We’re really good friends,” Shawn said. “It’s funny, she’s such a pro with this type of stuff. I want it to be amazing for her, so I’ve been trying for the past 24 hours to be really silly so that she stays on. I’m happy to walk with her — she’s amazing.” Well, there ya have it, folks! They’re still just…friends?
