Singer Sam Smith and 13 Reasons Why actor Brandon Flynn have split.
The couple started dating shortly before the release of Smith’s second album The Thrill Of It All last November, but the pair split last week after nine months.
During a performance in Brooklyn on Wednesday as part of his world tour, the singer appeared to address the recent breakup.
“I know that everyone in this room right now is going through some s–t. I know I’m going through some s—,” Smith told the crowd.
“And tonight I want all of us to just leave all of our worries and all of our heartache aside and let’s have some fun. Let’s sing as loud as we can.”
A source told UK’s The Sun newspaper, “Sam and Brandon had a real whirlwind romance. They really fell for each other,”
“But they are both so busy with their careers and unfortunately things just haven’t worked out.
“Sam is obviously devastated. This is the most significant relationship he has ever had.
“Thankfully he is on tour across the US at the moment which has been a welcome distraction.”
The singer has deleted several photos of the pair together from his Instagram account.
Smith will tour Australia later this year, performing four arena shows in capital cities including Brisbane.
