Shawn Mendes 'joins dating app Raya' after Camila Cabello confirmed romance with CEO of rival site


Shawn Mendes has reportedly signed up to celebrity dating app, Raya, after cancelling his Wonder world tour to prioritise his mental health.

It comes just days after his ex-girlfriend Camila Cabello, whom he split with last November, confirmed her new romance with Austin Kevitch, the CEO of rival dating app, Lox Club, which has even been dubbed the ‘Jewish Raya’. 

The Sun has claimed the singer, 24, linked his official Instagram account to the profile, which displays a slew of snaps of himself, as well as a waterfall and a self-help book about relaxation, along with the track Bandana, by Fireboy DML & Asake.

MailOnline has contacted Shawn’s representatives for comment.

Lox Club bills itself as ‘a members-only dating club for Jews (and non-Jews) with ridiculously high standards.’

According to the app, members have to go through an incredibly rigorous vetting process before they are granted access to the app.

The website states: ‘Our membership committee vets every applicant to decide if they’re the right fit for our community. If accepted, every new member pays a membership fee to ensure they’re joining for the right reasons.’

Rumors and speculations began spreading earlier this summer in June that the singer and CEO were a possible item when they were spotted together in Los Angeles on a stroll.

However, the rumors have been confirmed with their displays of love and affection for each other on Sunday.

Confirmation of Camila’s new love comes to the forefront as her ex, Shawn, spends time in Miami after cancelling the rest of his tour dates to focus on his mental health.

Camila dated Shawn following the collaboration on their second single in 2019, Senorita.

The two had known each other for years before, and had released their first single, I Know What You Did Last Summer, in 2015.

Shortly after, the two were spotted in July 2019 appearing to be more than just friends. During that time, Camila gushed about Shawn in an interview with Clash Magazine.

‘I feel like it’s so rare to meet someone in this industry and find a person of that quality, and I feel like Shawn is that person for me.’

After two years of dating in 2021, Shawn shared an adorable anniversary picture of the two, with the caption, ‘Happy 2 years my baby.’

In October 2021, the former Fifth Harmony member opened up to Glamour about the difficulty of their relationship constantly being in the spotlight.

‘When stuff that’s negative is out there, it’s going to get to you,’ she explained to the publication.

‘So yeah, that’s very, very challenging. I feel like it’s another thing therapy has been really helpful for,’ Camila added.

One month later in November, the couple decided to go their separate ways and announced their split on Instagram.

Sad end: 'As you guys know, I had to postpone the past few weeks of shows since I wasn't totally prepared for the toll of being back on the road would take on me,' he said in a heartfelt message to his fans

Earlier this week, Shawn was seen arriving at LAX Airport when he gave an update on his progress amid his heartbreaking announcement to cancel the rest of his Wonder world tour.

Shawn told TMZ: ‘I’m taking a lot of time just like doing therapy. Yeah, just taking it easy man. I think that spending time with family that I haven’t been able to.’

As he has been busy being one of the most sought after pop stars in the world, he has made an effort to be around his loved ones who he hasn’t been able to in recent years.

Shawn said: ‘Yeah I think for me it’s just like about spending time doing things I haven’t done over the last few years and just like having dinners with friends and stuff.’

Last month, the singer postponed some of the gigs in early July to focus on his mental health but on July 27 he confirmed on social media that the tour has been scrapped altogether as he prioritizes his wellbeing. 

‘As you guys know, I had to postpone the past few weeks of shows since I wasn’t totally prepared for the toll of being back on the road would take on me,’ he said in a heartfelt message to his fans.

‘I started this tour excited to finally get back to playing live after a long break due to the pandemic, but the reality is I was not at all ready for how difficult touring would be after this time away.

‘After speaking more with my team and working with an incredible group of health professionals, it has become more clear that I need to take the time I’ve never taken personally, to ground myself and come back stronger.’

He continued: ‘I unfortunately have to cancel the rest of the tour dates in North America, and the UK/Europe.

‘We were hopeful that I might be able to pick up with the rest of the dates after some much needed time off, but at this time I have to put my health as my first priority.’

Shawn assured his fans that he will still be making music and shared that he felt heartbroken to let those who had tickets for the gigs down.

He said: ‘This doesn’t mean I won’t be making new music, and I can’t wait to see you on tour in the future. I know you all have been waiting so long to see these shows, and it breaks my heart to tell you this but I promise I will be back as soon as I’ve taken the right time to heal. I love you all and thank you all so much for supporting me and sticking by me on this journey.’
