We were all devastated when news hit the web that Camila Cabello and her boyfriend of over a year, Matthew Hussey, had broken up. Now, the singer has spoken out about the heartbreaking split. The “Havana” songstress posted an emotional message to her Instagram Stories, urging fans to stop sending her ex-boyfriend hate and negative comments.

“To my fans, if you really love me, please do not send people I love and care about hateful things,” she wrote on Wednesday, June 26. “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,” she continued. “You spamming them with hateful, insensitive things is really not funny, is causing all of us pain and doesn’t at all reflect the values I talk about. 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.”

As fans know, Us Weekly confirmed that the couple had decided to call it quits earlier that day. The 22-year-old and the relationship coach first started dating back in February 2018, after they met on set of The Today Show. And although they kept their romance pretty private, every time we got a glimpse of their love, we were seriously living for it.

“He’s so similar to me. In person, we’re just weird and silly and stupid together. He makes me the happiest I’ve ever been in my life,” the former Fifth Harmony member gushed to Marie Claire in November 2018. “Any time he’s [in the audience at one of my shows], I get super nervous. I stutter or my hands are shaky. It’s annoying, because we’ve been together for kind of like a long time now, but every time, I’m like, ‘Oh my God, I have to talk now.’”

Let’s all respect Camila’s wishes during this hard time.
