He's been known for his very public -and intense- displays of affection with girlfriend Camila Cabello. 

But that's not likely the cause of Shawn Mendes' laryngitis, given the virus is not usually known to be very contagious.

However, the sudden illness did cause Shawn to have to cancel his Sao Paulo show in Brazil on Saturday, for which he took to social media to apologize profusely.

The 21-year-old singer took to Twitter on Saturday, writing, 'Sao Paulo, I’m so so sorry to have to tell you this, but today I woke up feeling ill, and went to the doctor, to find out I have laryngitis and a sinus infection which has caused swelling of my vocal cords.' 

The Stitches hitmaker continued, 'It breaks my heart to do this but my doctors told me I can not perform tonight or it would risk long term damage to my voice.' 

'I love you all so much and apologize from the bottom of my heart as I wish I could be there on stage tonight.' 

'I promise I will make it up to you next time I’m back in South America. Te Amo.'

He later followed that up with a tweet which simply read, 'I'm so sorry [HEART EMOJI]'.
