It’s not clear exactly when their relationship started, but they’ve been flirting back and forth since meeting in 2014. In a conversation with V Magazine, Cabello said that Shawn didn’t want to hang out much after first meeting. They were both opening acts for Austin Mahone at the time.

“I remember I wanted to hang out with you, but you were always on the tour bus, just learning guitar,” she told Mendes. Mendes replied that Cabello was the only one that would talk to him during the tour, but he thought she was “insane.”

Cabello was dating Austin Mahone in 2014, though, and not Shawn Mendes. The couple broke up two weeks after the interview.

In July 2015, the pair reunited on Taylor Swift’s 1989 tour. Fans sensed their chemistry at this point, especially when Mendes tweeted about Cabello being bad at texting. Then, the two wrote their single “I Know What You Did Last Summer” while backstage on tour the tour.

In August of the same year, Cabello offered to teach Mendes Spanish in a cute exchange on Twitter. They dropped their first song together in November of 2015; it was written about a crush gone wrong. The music video is full of the chemistry fans now connect with their relationship.

Two years later, Mendes and Cabello released an Instagram video of the two of them singing a cover of Ed Sheeran’s Kiss Me. In May 2017, Mendes …read more

NBA icon Kobe Bryant, who died in a helicopter crash in California on Sunday, had an illustrious basketball career and his influence can still be felt in the league today — but he had a complicated legacy off the court.

Bryant, who had a 20-year career with the Los Angeles Lakers until his retirement in 2016, was accused of sexual assault as a young player, experienced criticism over an Academy Award win in the wake of the #MeToo era in Hollywood, and faced other minor controversies throughout his life.

In 2003, Bryant was charged with sexual assault and false imprisonment after being accused of rape by a hotel employee in Colorado. The charges were later dropped, and Bryant settled a separate civil case over the allegations.

Bryant did not admit guilt in the incident, but he did issue a statement through his attorney in which he apologized to the woman.

“Although I truly believe this encounter between us was consensual, I recognize now that she did not and does not view this incident the same way I did,” the apology said. “After months of reviewing discovery, listening to her attorney, and even her testimony in person, I now understand how she feels that she did not consent to this encounter. I issue this statement today fully aware that while one part of this case ends today, another remains.”

Bryant continued to play in the NBA for more than a decade after the allegations first surfaced.

But they were brought up again in 2018, when Bryant won an Oscar for his short animated film, “Dear Basketball.”

In the wake of the #MeToo movement in Hollywood, which saw multiple men be accused of sexual misconduct, including Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey, some people were surprised that Bryant was being celebrated over the animated short.

The Los Angeles Times’ Robin Abcarian said in an essay that the time that there was a “moral confusion” in the academy,.
