E!

Till this day, we still don't know what went on between Shawn Mendes and Hailey Baldwin. Did they ever date? Or were we just made to believe there was a romantic connection between them? The two never confirmed their relationship status but when they attended the 2018 Met Gala together, it definitely seemed like they were a couple. After the event, however, Shawn claimed yet againthat they were just friends who walked a red carpet together.

Flash-forward two months later and Hailey is now getting ready to marry Justin Bieber and all the photos of Shawn are mysteriously deleted from her Instagram. So, where in our relationship timeline were we mistaken? We might not ever know. All we know for sure is that Shawn has nothing but kind words for Hailey following her engagement.

He revealed that he congratulated Hailey after news broke out. “I texted Hailey the day of and I said congrats. That's what it is,” he told host Dave Thornton in an interview on Australian show The Project. “Everybody wants there to be more – there’s not.”

We're not sure if he's referring to the dating rumors or the photo deletion when he says people “want there to be more,” but we probably will never know.

In fact, Shawn also made it very clear that there is absolutely no bad blood between him and Justin, either. He praised the “One Less Lonely Girl” crooner, saying, “Bieber was a massive influence for me growing up.” However, if he had to pick who he likes more between Justin and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, he'd choose JT. (Don't forget they're all canadians!) But because Shawn is the nicest guy in Hollywood, he said he loves both Justins.

Watch his interview in the video below:

This isn't the first time Shawn has addressed Hailey and Justin's romance. In June, he told Canada's ETALK what he really thought about the two giving their relationship another shot.

“I think that’s awesome,” he said. “I love them both. They’re both really awesome people. When I first started out, everybody was like, ‘Oh, how do you feel about being compared to Justin?' I was like, ‘What do you mean, how do I feel?' That’s the best thing anyone could say to me. He’s the man.”

So, does this mean we can all officially stop wondering if Shawn cares that his rumored ex is marrying another man? It's clear that Justin and Hailey have his blessing, which makes us wonder if Shawn will be invited to the couple's wedding. It may be a long shot, but if he and Hailey are good friends like they claim they are – or were – then why wouldn't he? We'll just have to wait to see!
