Following her rumoured split from boyfriend Matthew Hussey, singer Camila Cabello has urged fans to stop sending people she "loves and cares about hateful things".

The Havana hitmaker pleaded with her 34 million followers on Instagram to "delete any mean comments you've sent, and please be kind by leaving it alone".

While Cabello doesn't specify who she is talking about, there is speculation that it might be because of comments on Hussey's social media where her fans have been posting lyrics from her new single, Senorita, with Shawn Mendes.  

Taking to Instagram stories 22-year-old Cabello explained how the "hateful, insensitive" comments had really "hurt" her.  

She 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."

Cabello then urged her fans to "be kind and compassionate and sensitive and respectful".

She added: "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."

While Cabello and Hussey have not commented on their relationship, they have not been seen together since early May.
