"You don't realize when you're breaking up with someone … all the s*** that comes after it," he said as per PEOPLE, "Which is like, who do I call when I am, like, in a panic attack, who do I call when I am, like, f—ing on the edge, you know? And I think that's the reality that kinda I am on my own now after like, finally I am actually on my own and I hate that … that's my reality, you know," said the 23-year old singer-songwriter.
Following the breakup revelation, a source close to Camila told E! News that Shawn had "initiated the conversation" with the fellow singer about splitting up, and that while she was "very upset," the two "agreed" it was for the best.
