The Havana singer strolled down the popular West Hollywood street in a stylish red dress with ruffled details and buttons cascading down the front. 

She paired the eye-catching frock with simple black sandals and carried a large knitted tote bag over her shoulder. 

Sunglasses hiding what appeared to be teary eyes, she cocked her head down and tousled her brown hair while keeping to herself as she walked. 

On November 17 Camila and Shawn announced their breakup via a joint Instagram statement where they said there was still a lot of love between them and they would continue to be ‘best friends.’

‘Things are different now, though,’ the insider continued to say of growing strains on the relationship. 

‘It’s more back to normal life. They have careers that are taking them in different directions. They went from spending every day together to now not really spending any time together.’  

E! News had previously reported  that In Wonder singer had ‘initiated the conversation’ about breaking up and that the Cinderella star was ‘very upset over the split’ but ‘agreed’ to it as it was for the ‘best.’ 

‘The relationship was getting stale and complacent and they decided they are better off being friends,’ the insider divulged.  

The pair started off as friends when Camila was a member of Fifth Harmony in 2014, but the relationship only became romantic in 2019.
