Shawn Mendes Reveals His Biggest Fear About Arguing With Camila Cabello

Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello set the Internet aflame when they started dating in July 2019, and they've been going strong ever since. 

Mendes chatted about his romance with the "Havana" singer to Apple Music in 2020, and it's obvious he's head over heels. "A lot happens when you fall in love for the first time, because you really feel this support, this grounded, 'Hey, if everything goes away, I'm going to be okay,'" he said. "It's perspective, and it's beautiful. And it really allows you to be like, 'Okay, well, if I'm going to do this [make music, etc.], I might as well be doing it for the right reasons and really, really, really enjoying it.'"

Based on her sweet Instagram posts, Camila clearly feels the same way. But she also wrote in one Instagram share that sometimes love is "messy and uncomfortable." "I've learned a lot about love with this guy. It's not as simple as it looks in pictures sometimes," she admitted. "But there's nothing like the pull, the FORCE that is love, to be the light in the darkness." Mendes even told ET Online that an engagement could be in their future: "I know we are really young so I don't want to jump, like, insanely fast, but I think when you find your person, you feel and you know that."

Things might appear peachy between the two, but Mendes shared new details about his relationship that will shock you. Keep reading for more details.

Shawn Mendes is 'terrified of being evil'

Shawn Mendes appeared on the June 28 episode of the "Man Enough" podcast and got candid on what he's really worrying about in his relationship with girlfriend Camila Cabello.

When asked what "terrified" him the most, Mendes referred to an argument the couple had. "I raised my voice at her and she was like, 'I don't like it when you raise your voice. Why did you raise your voice?' And I got so defensive," he said. "I was like, 'I wasn't raising my voice at you!' And I did raise my voice at her. And then I felt her shrink and I felt me grow and I was like, 'Oh god, this is the worst.'" He added, "I'm so terrified of being evil. I'm so scared to be bad. I don't want to be bad."

Mendes and Cabello broke down what happened and he revealed "there's a little darkness inside of me," but he has to reconcile it with the other part of him. Mendes also admitted that he made it about himself, and when Cabello comforted him, he realized the importance of owning up to his mistake and apologizing it. Fortunately, they put the disagreement behind them — and nothing strengthens a relationship more than working through any issues that arise.
