IN LOVE WITH A QUOKKA: Recent rumours of a break-up between Canadian singer-songwriter Shawn Mendes and his girlfriend, fellow singer Camila Cabello, have not dampened Mendes' mood for a little fun. On Sunday, the 21-year-old took a selfie with a quokka, a small marsupial native to Rottnest Island off Western Australia.   

He posted the photo with the adorable creature on his official Instagram account with the caption: "I met a Quokka!!!" Cabello, 22, joined in the fun by commenting: "I love this picture of us."     

Mendes, who held a sold-out concert at the Singapore Indoor Stadium earlier this month, is in Australia for the latest leg of his world tour.      Mendes and Cabello seem to have refuted rumours of a break-up. He posted a photo on Instagram of her kissing him on the cheek while he was hugging her, with a single black heart as the caption. Cabello left four heart-with-arrow emojis in the comments.
