Sam Smith and Brandon Flynn unfollow each other on Instagram, confirming split rumours
At a recent concert in Brooklyn on Wednesday night, Sam told the audience that he was "going through some sh*t." Since then, the two haven't been following each other either.
If you thought 2017 was the cursed year of adorable celebrity couples splitting, there's some bad news for you. Looks like 2018 is continuing it with the curse factor as one of Hollywood's most prized couples, Sam Smith and Brandon Flynn, aka Justin Foley from Netflix's 13 Reasons Why are reportedly no longer together.
After just nine months of dating, the two have decided to split. And confirmation of sorts comes fans' ways as at a recent concert in Brooklyn on Wednesday night, Sam told the audience that he was "going through some sh*t." And if you want further confirmation the two have unfollowed each other on Instagram.
The duo was first spotted together back in October last year and during the release of his last album — The Thrill of It All — last November he also shared on Ellen that he was definitely not single anymore. Fast forward to December and the two finally made themselves Instagram official by sharing the most adorable photo of them wearing matching unicorn hats.
The two then decided to solidify their relationship status by going to the Grammy's together. There wasn't much word from them about their relationship after that, but the Instagram posts kept coming and most of them still remain on Brandon's account.
One of the most significant posts of them being in a relationship was a photo shared of the two of them, on the 13 Reasons Why actors Instagram account, which he captioned listing his most favorite things from 2017, along with a quote from the Oscar-nominated film "Call Me by your Name."
"A few of my favorite things from 2017, as shit as some of it was can't help but see all the good!" Brandon wrote. "Hoping 2018 is full of ups and downs as well... saw 'Call Me By Your Name' today and couldn't help myself..."
Later on Sam's birthday, Brandon shared another sweet picture of the singer. His caption read, "He’s in a different time zone and it’s hit his birthday! Just finishing his European leg of his tour, at 26 he’s accomplished so much. He’s an angel! He makes me so fucking happy and I hope everyone goes and shares all the birthday love, it ain’t easy getting old but he’s doing it with grace 😆 thank you for everything, Samuel! Happy 26, here’s to another amazing year of life!"
From Sam's side, in an interview back in November, he called Brandon lovely and in an interview with V Magazine in January, he also mentioned how he was looking forward to writing more love songs. “I’m in a relationship right now and for the first time, I think I deserve to be happy,” he told Sarah Jessica Parker in the interview. “I’m actually asking myself if I’m going to be writing some happy love songs soon.”
Sadly, that does not seem to be the case anymore because pretty much everybody knows the significance of the brutal 'unfollow'!
