The 22-year-old singer and performer apparently broke up with her 32-year-old British boyfriend Matthew Hussey who is very popular as a love advisor of finding love among women. They have been dating more than a year now, 18 months to be approximate and were last spotted together in May this year.
The couple has always been very private in their relationship but were spotted sometimes in public, spending quality time until they made their first public appearance as a couple in the Vanity Fair’s Oscars party last year.
But after the release of her latest track Senorita, fans have been bowled out by the on-screen chemistry of Camila and Shawn Mendes, who are admittedly just friends and have been so for the past five years. Hence the breakup news at a time like this has only fuelled the rumors and the fantasies that the fans of both Camila and Shawn hold.
However, in a turn of events, Mathew Hussey has been the victim of social media trolling as some fans who ship Shawn and Camila are posting mean comments or tweets on the posts made by him.
The trolling has also been noticed by Camila which is why she took to Instagram stories and wrote, “To my fans, if you really love me, please do not send people I love and care about hateful things. You doing that really hurts me, and it’s so unnecessary and heavy and damaging to add more pain to pain. There’s a real person behind your tweets. You spamming them with hateful, insensitive things is really not funny, is causing all of us pain, and doesn’t all reflect the values I talk about.”
Camila further pleaded to the fans “Please be kind and compassionate and sensitive and respectful. I know you love me, but anyone that’s doing that is really not even respecting the sacred things in my life. The people I love and care about is one of them. I would really appreciate it if you would delete any mean comments you’ve sent, and please be kind by leaving it alone.”
The break up is said to be mutual and therefore it is only fair to say that Camila wants to stay in good terms with her ex-fuel as they have been by each other’s side for so long. But one thing is sure, be it a publicity stunt or a genuine cause, the break up is going to add more layers to the latest release Senorita.
