However, Shawn confirmed PEOPLE that he and Hailey were just friends at the time. “No, we didn’t make our big debut [as a couple]. Obviously Hailey and I are friends,” he explained, “and it was really cool for me to be able to walk with her because she’s a vet and it was my first year, so it took the pressure off ‘ taken down a bit. … I was delighted to be able to go with her.” However, it’s important to note that in November 2018, after Hailey and Justin hurriedly walked down the aisle, Shawn admitted his situation with the model was “more of a zone of limbo” in an interview with Rolling stone.

Shawn went on to show there was no bad blood between him and his fellow Canadian when he sat together GQ the following month and addressed the rumors. “Justin and I were never enemies. We might not have been friends,” he explained. “I mean, yeah, I don’t think I texted and said, ‘Yo, how are you today?’, but we were never enemies, absolutely, and that’s kind of something that people might turn it into got. some point. And when he made the video and he was like, ‘Who’s, who Shawn Mendes?’, he said he really didn’t know who I was, and I believed him. So whatever , maybe he did and he was trying to bother me anyway.”
“But I mean, honestly, I really love him,” he continued. “He was so sweet, and very gracious and giving with his advice and with his energy, so he’s a great friend.” Well, there you have it!
