While chatting with SiriusXM on Friday (Aug. 20), the same day he released his new Tainy-assisted single “Summer of Love,” Mendes revealed there’s sometimes trouble in paradise for the two. “We definitely fight, and we get in the worst little arguments. But I think that we definitely are pretty good at picking up on when it’s just ego talking,” he said. “And we usually call each other out. We have a really honest and open relationship, but yeah, we definitely fight.”
The “Señorita” collaborators, who began dating in 2019 and have frequently posted PDA snaps on their social media accounts, recently celebrated their two-year anniversary by sharing sweet snapshots of their time in the Caribbean together. But Mendes debunked the assumption that relationships get easier with time.
“The longer the relationship goes, it’s like the easier it seems to be to fight,” he noted. “It’s definitely not that holding-hands-all-the-time. We’re really good with each other, it never gets bad. It’s always like a little fight.”
But what happens when Mendes is wrong? He owns up to it, even though “it takes all my might and the entire world … It takes everything.”
