Love is dead… for the thousand time.
Just when we thought Sam Smith’s next album would be filled with happy cute love songs about his relationship with Brandon Flynn, our favorite gay couple has decided it call it quits after 9 months together.
During pride month.
Without giving us any heads up.
“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,” a source close to the Brit said. “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.”
Neither Sam nor Brandon have confirmed the split, but the singer did scrubbed signs he’s ever known the 13 Reasons Why actor form Instagram—which is basically all the confirmation we need for Smith to know that love is officially dead.
The couple started dating shortly before the release of Sam’s second record The Thrill Of It All in November, flashing their intense love on the streets and constantly packing on major PDA. But the burn was so hot that it has now flamed out, sadly.
Though fans of the couple are mourning the death of their love, others are hoping the Stay With Me singer finds love again—or at least channels it into another amazing record. Here are the best reactions to Sam and Brandon’s devastating breakup.
