She recently announced the end of her two-year relationship with Shawn Mendes.
And Camila Cabello admitted that she ‘felt really unstable’ and was filled with anxiety from her troublesome work schedule at the beginning of the pandemic.

Advocate for mental health: Camila Cabello admitted that she ‘felt really unstable’ and was filled with anxiety from her awkward work schedule at the beginning of the pandemic
‘Before the pandemic, I felt really burnt out. I had been working quite uninterruptedly since I was 15. And the rigor that I started working with, there was just no one free, ”she said.
‘I was barely home. I did not have time to learn who I was outside of my career. It was not even a meltdown, because I just wanted to work my way through it. ‘
The former Fifth Harmony star added: ‘I was just exhausted in every way and at the time I felt like I was running a marathon with a broken leg. I continued, but it was extremely hard. And I wish I had just been like, “Let me just stop for a moment and get a good cast for my broken leg and get some physiotherapy.” But I did not. COVID stepped in and did it in a way for me. “‘
She was halfway through filming Cinderella when she was sent home due to the pandemic, and when she returned, she found herself breaking down and crying ‘at least once a day’.

Announcement: The 23-year-old Canadian hitmaker revealed the news on Instagram and wrote that he and the 24-year-old singer have ‘decided to end our romantic relationship
‘I felt so anxious, paralyzing anxiety. I just felt really unstable and I just felt a mess, because suddenly this thing that distracted me, my work and film, was not there, ‘said Cabello. ‘And so I just stood back with my anxiety and my mind. And it got in the way of my relationship. It got in the way of my friendships, my time at home. ‘
Shawn Mendes was reportedly the one who ‘initiated the conversation’ to end his ‘old’ relationship with Camila Cabello last week, according to E! News.
“The relationship was becoming outdated and complacent, and they decided they were better off being friends,” the source added. ‘It was really hard for a few days but she has spent a lot of time with friends and stayed busy. She has a huge support system and feels renewed now. ‘
“Hi guys, we have decided to end our romantic relationship, but our love for each other as human beings is stronger than ever,” the singers wrote. “We started our relationship as best friends and will continue to be best friends.”
In photos taken exclusively by DailyMail.com earlier this month, the couple looked very much in love as they shared a passionate kiss on the shore.

The couple first met in 2014 while serving as supporting roles for Austin Mahone’s Live On Tour concerts, and Camila was still a member of the X-Factor-derived girl group Fifth Harmony at the time.
The couple immediately quit and decided to collaborate on a song titled I Know What You Did Last Summer, which was released in November 2015.
The rumors went into overdrive when the couple dropped the steamy music video for their second joint single Senorita in June 2019.
The music video captured several ultra-romantic moments between the supposed ‘friends’, including a scene where Shawn tore off his shirt while singing just inches away from Camila’s face.
Although the couple would officially confirm their romance in August, Camila and Shawn were photographed kissing on a number of occasions in the weeks leading up to the confirmation.
