Here's my feeling on what happened: first Camila had a girl crush on Lauren, because, look at Lauren. Lauren who thought she was mostly straight was really caught off guard by her strong feelings for Mila. Lauren felt a deep crush. Camila was starting to crush too and definitely had real feelings. And then, it exploded. The fans, media and management caught on. It was too dangerous a rumor for early pop careers. Teams stepped in. Camren started ignoring their feelings. Both were hurt a lot.
How can you think for a second that nothing actually happened, that it was just a crush that was never acted on, when they look at each other that way :
These are the looks and the actions of two people who have seen each other NAKED! On multiple occasions! With and without accessories!
They did have a relationship, that the fans, media and management caught on. And it was indeed too dangerous for early pop careers. Teams did step in, but neither of them ignored anything, the pressure of the situation is what got to their relationship and that’s why they broke in 2015, and both were indeed hurt a lot. But then they got back together and did everything in their power to keep their relationship private - now I don’t know if they’re together or not because Lauren Jauregui fucked up all my theories with a single tweet, like she always does!
