It looks like Austin Mahone finally has something to sing about.
The “What About Love” singer and Taylor Swift tourmate seems to be smitten with former X Factor contender Camilla Cabelo and isn’t shy about showing it.
During Camilla’s run on the hit reality competition show, Austin made his interest in her public knowledge, tweeting his admiration. “Hey gorgeous! Good job tonight. I voted for you,” he wrote to the 16-year-old singer in December.
Austin, 17, has kept the flirtation alive since, according to People.
A source close to the pair reveals, “Austin caught Camilla's eye when they were both in New York for the MTV VMAs [in August]. They met the day before at the Arthur Ashe Kids Day and have been in touch ever since."
“Austin thinks she is so cute and she feels the same," adds the insider. "They're staying in touch and are looking forward to hanging out together soon."
Camila has not yet publicly responded to Austin’s flirtation, but that may have more to do with Austin’s rabid fanbase than her feelings toward the teen heartthrob.
However, if even Taylor Swift managed to tour with him without sparking dating rumors, perhaps his Bieberesque powers of teenage romance are less than universal.
