Sam Smith says he's 'still quite raw' about his breakup with Brandon Flynn
The actor and Smith first started dating each other in October last year, and by December the couple seemed to have embarked on a passionate and public relationship
If reports are to be believed, Sam Smith is still not over his breakup with ex-boyfriend Brandon Flynn. The musician recently opened up to The Times about his life and new music, and it also included him discussing his relationship and sudden split with the '13 Reasons Why' star.
"I'm still trying to figure out what I took from that relationship and what it meant to me," he shared, as per E! News. "It's still quite raw."
The actor and Smith first started dating each other in October last year, and by December the couple seemed to have embarked on a passionate and public relationship. However, their romance was quite short-lived, for it came to an abrupt end eight months later after Smith cryptically told concert-goers he was "going through some sh-t" in June. Later, it was reported that Smith, as well as Flynn, unfollowed each other on social media and the musician even wiped off all the memories of Flynn from his Instagram account.
One of the most significant posts of them being in a relationship was a photo shared of the two of them, on the actor's 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!" Flynn wrote. "Hoping 2018 is full of ups and downs as well... saw 'Call Me By Your Name' today and couldn't help myself..."
From Smith's side, in an interview back in November, he called Flynn 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.”
And even after the split, Smith continues to mirror those sentiments and affections for his ex. "All my relationships have ended in a nice way, never nasty," the singer revealed to The Times. And although he decided to not speak any further on the topic, he recognized that "seeing gay relationships [in a public way] is important and refreshing. You don't see it loads."
