Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes are back on the market, months after he confessed he yells at the submissive singer.

Shawn and Camila announced their split on Wednesday after two and a half years together, according to Yahoo! News.

The couple split just months after he confessed he was verbally abusive to his submissive girlfriend.

In June, the 23-year-old pop singer said he hates to yell at Camila because she "shrinks" whenever he raises his voice.

The Canadian star said he often checks himself when he and the 24-year-old Cuban singer have a disagreement, and he hates the way he makes her feel.

"I raised my voice at her and she was like, 'I don't like it when you raise your voice. Why did you raise your voice?'" he told the Man Enough podcast.

In a joint statement on Instagram Stories on Wednesday, the ex-couple said they will remain "best friends."

Shawn Mendes hates yelling at his submissive girlfriend, Camila Cabello, because she "shrinks" whenever he raises his voice.

The 22-year-old pop singer fears his relationship with Camila will become abusive.

The Canadian star admits he often checks himself when he and the 24-year-old Cuban singer have a falling out, and he hates the way he makes her feel.

"I raised my voice at her and she was like, 'I don't like it when you raise your voice. Why did you raise your voice?'" he told the Man Enough podcast.

"I got so defensive. I was like, 'I wasn't raising my voice at you!' And I did raise my voice at her. And I felt her shrink and I felt me grow and I was like, 'Oh God, this is the worst'. I'm so terrified of being evil. I'm so scared to be bad."

Shawn says his insecurity causes him to lash out at the former Fifth Harmony member, and he fears he will lose her if he doesn't seek help for his undiagnosed mental health issues.

"Maybe there even is bad inside of me, and I have to just accept that that exists, and that other part of me, he's just got to be here and we've just got to work together until eventually he gets worked in all of the trauma and all of the kinks get rubbed out of him and he's OK. But I can't avoid the fact that there's a little bit of darkness inside of me and letting that darkness kind of be present is a horrible feeling."

Shawn recalls how Camila helps him with his anxiety and mental health issues, and now admits she also comforts him after he loses his temper.

"She comforted me, and then it took me, like, 20 minutes of us separately reading our books to be able to come back to her and be like, 'God, that was a whole thing and I'm really sorry.'"

Shawn is desperate to rid himself of his demons, because a submissive woman like Camila is hard to find.

One meme she re-posted shows a drawing of a crying Black child looking at a "closed" sign. The drawing asks the viewer to guess what the drawing is about. The correct answer is "KFC".

Some of the posts featured the N-word and Asian slurs. She reposted offensive memes that she probably thought were funny. Camila obviously never assumed she would one day be an international pop star.

On Wednesday, Cabello issued a lengthy apology online, expressing her remorse at the hurtful language she used when she was an "ignorant" youth.

"When I was younger I used language that I'm deeply ashamed of and will regret forever," the singer began.

"I was uneducated and ignorant and once I became aware of the history and the weight and the true meaning behind this horrible and hurtful language, I was deeply embarrassed I ever used it."

Cabello went on to insist she is a changed woman: "I'm 22 now," she continued. "I'm an adult and I've grown and learned and am conscious and aware of the history and the pain it carries in a way I wasn't before.

"These mistakes don't represent the person I am or (the) person I've ever been. I only stand and have ever stood for love and inclusivity and my heart has never, even then, had an ounce of hate or divisiveness."

She concluded, "I can't say enough how deeply sorry and ashamed I feel, and I apologize again from the bottom of my heart."

Cabello's public apology comes almost four months after her boyfriend, fellow pop star Shawn Mendes, also apologized for similar racially-insensitive messages posted to his Twitter account back in 2013.

In his statement addressing the racist messages, Mendes blamed his friends using his phone to tweet out comments.

Madonna enraged Black Twitter when she took too long to pay tribute to the queen of soul Aretha Franklin, who died Thursday of pancreatic cancer at age 76. Before presenting the award to Camila Cabello for Best Video of the Year at the 2018 MTV VMAs on Monday night, Madonna explained how Aretha inspired her early in her career.
