Shawn Mendes has admitted that he has entered therapy in the aftermath of cancelling his world tour.
Shawn Mendes Enters ‘Therapy’ After Cancelling World Tour-‘Just Taking It Easy’
The star decided to cancel his world tour in July citing mental health reasons. Thereafter, the musician made it a priority to focus on himself. And in keeping with that, he was seen relaxing on Miami Beach, as well as going to see the Weeknd.
With that being said, Shawn is putting himself first. In an interview with TMZ, he said: “I’m taking a lot of time just doing therapy, just taking it easy, man.” One of the things that has made things extremely difficult for Shawn has been the absence of someone in his life.
At the back end of last year, Shawn broke up from his then girlfriend Camila Cabello. They had been together for 3 years. But ever since that moment, Camila has moved on with Austin Kevitch. Meanwhile, Shawn is still apparently single and being lonely is something that he has spoken about not liking in the past.
That is why he is trying to enjoy the company of those around him. His following comments confirmed as much: “I think for me it’s just about spending time doing things that I haven’t really done over the last few years, and so having dinner with friends and stuff.”
The response on social media was mixed. While a certain subset of people recognised that Shawn was not in a good place, others were not happy on the basis that they had paid so much money in the hope that they would be able to see him on tour.
One person wrote: “As a “fan who shelled out a chunk of change”, I think I can speak for most of his true fans when I say leave him alone. Refunds have already started coming- we will catch him on tour next time.” Hopefully, with time, Shawn is able to overcome his struggles.
