Since their smash hit collaboration “I Know What You Did Last Summer” in 2015, rumors have swirled about Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello being romantically involved, with the suggestion only increasing with the release of their new single “Señorita.” The artists have denied these rumors--but new photos of them cuddling in a Los Angeles restaurant could suggest otherwise.

According to Hollywood Life, Mendes and Cabello were seen at nearly 5 a.m. on July 7 sharing a meal at West Hollywood’s Kitchen 24 while cuddling together. Mendes reportedly had his arm wrapped around Cabello, then proceeded to rest his head against hers. Later the same day, Mendes and Cabello had brunch with his family, then went for a walk--with their hands entwined together.

This sighting comes after Mendes (equivocally) said that he and Cabello were not dating. However, this new sighting of the duo seems to cast doubt on that assertion--compounded by other sightings of the two getting close, and an Instagram post in which Cabello says that Mendes was “amazing” and “unreal” during one of his concert.

Some, however, have maintained doubt about their relationship--including pornography website Pornhub, whose social media team made waves earlier this week when they suggested that the “Señorita” duo could be getting intimate as a publicity stunt.

We’re not exactly sure whether Cabello and Mendes are really together or not--it sure seems that way, but who can tell? If it is a publicity stunt, however, it’s working, because they certainly have our attention.
