The Olympic figure skater, 28, shared a photo on his Instagram Story of himself and the “Treat You Better” singer, 19, looking dapper in black suits. “BRUH @shawnmendes,” he captioned the post.

The encounter came just three days after Rippon revealed that he has the hots for Mendes. “I used to have a really big crush on Harry Styles, but here’s the thing: I was sleeping on Shawn Mendes,” the athlete said during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday, March 1.

“Not literally, but I didn’t realize how cute he was,” he clarified, explaining that “sleeping on” is a slang phrase that means ignoring or overlooking someone’s attractiveness. “I know Harry will be upset, but … love is a funny thing.”

The skater’s love life has been a hot topic in recent months. In February, Sally Field tried to play matchmaker and set up her son, Sam Greisman, with Rippon, who recently won a bronze medal at the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea. “Sam … he’s insanely pretty. Find a way,” the Mrs. Doubtfire actress, 71, texted her son, who tweeted a screenshot of the conversation.

Rippon later responded in an interview with BuzzFeed, saying, “Sam, your mom — I admire her. And I’m sure one day we’re going to meet. So thanks, Mom!”
