Sorry, popular 19-year-old singer Shawn Mendes is NOT coming out – even if you’ve seen a Tweet from “him” that says otherwise – as the one the went viral this week turned out to be a fake.
When you’re a good looking man in show-business (strike that – a stunningly hot man in show-business), the gay rumors will always follow. Sometimes they turn out to be true, sometimes they’re not, and sometimes they’re just… fake.
Earlier this week, a Tweet that appeared to be from Shawn Mendes’ official account started spreading on Twitter. It said:
“Guys my sexuality shouldn’t be anyone’s business. Yes, I’m gay and I’m proud”

At first, Shawn Mendes’ fans were understandably going wild, with both positive – and shocked reactions. A #ShawnComingOut hashtag even became popular on Twitter with reactions to the “news.”
However, the fans discovered pretty quickly that the alleged “coming out” Tweet was a fake – and indeed, it doesn’t exist on Shawn’s REAL account.
This is the second time a fake Shawn Mendes tweet takes Twitter by storm, as a few weeks ago Shawn’s “leaked nudes” were trending on Twitter… WITHOUT any leaked nudes.
As for Shawn Mendes’ sexual orientation, the Canadian hottie addressed the issue twice in the past – first by declaring, in a video, that he’s not gay (despite the comments), and then by explaining why he even had to issue that statement.
