“Hey guys, we’ve decided to end our romantic relationship but our love for one another as humans is stronger than ever ❤️,” Cabello and Mendes wrote in their Instagram Stories. “We started our relationship as best friends and will continue to be best friends. we so appreciate your support from the beginning and moving forward ❤️❤️❤️ Camila and Shawn.”

Camila Cabello’s comment on Shawn Mendes’ post is a reference to a ‘High School Musical 3’ scene

Cabello’s comment is likely a reference to the Disney movie High School Musical 3. In one scene, Gabriella Montez (played by Vanessa Hudgens) walked out of class at Stanford University. Her high school boyfriend, Troy Bolton (played by Zac Efron), surprised her with a visit by waiting for her in a tree on campus. 

Troy wore a tuxedo since it was prom night. Gabriella looked up at him in the tree and smiled, saying, “You are so crazy, wildcat.” The wildcat is the school mascot in the popular film franchise.
