Since their breakup, Shawn and Camila have revealed how they’re doing. According to E!, during an Instagram confessional that was intended to be about his upcoming new music, Shawn reflected on life after Camila, saying, "You don't realize, like, when you're like, breaking up with someone, you think it's the right thing to do, you don't realize all this sh-- that comes after it. Like, who do I call when I'm like, in a panic attack?"

He continued on IG: "Who do I call when I'm like, f---ing, on the edge? I think that's the reality that kind of hit me. It's like, oh, I'm on my own now. Now I feel like finally, like, I'm actually on my own, and I hate that. That's my reality, you know?"

One thing we know for sure is that Shawn and Camila have both held back from speaking negatively about each other in public, which means that although they may be heartbroken, they’re keeping it classy.
