During a fan Q&A he hosted in Hindmarsh, Australia, the pop star revealed the exact day he and Cabello became an item. "We haven't been dating that long," he said. "We've been dating since July 4th, officially."
That would mean that, according to Mendes' timeline, he and the former Fifth Harmony member left the friend zone a couple of weeks after their hit collaboration "Señorita" was released on June 21, but before it hit the top of the Billboard Hot 100 the week of Aug. 26 following Lil Nas X's record-breaking, 16-week reign with "Old Town Road."
