It looks like Sam Smith may have a new man in their life! Yep, the singer (who announced last year that they are now using gender-neutral pronouns like “they” and “them” instead of “he” and “she”) was just spotted packing on the PDA with Francois Rocci, and we have all the deets on their rumored new relationship.
The “Stay With Me” crooner was photographed kissing the furniture designer in London, England on Thursday, August 27. So who is their new man, you ask? Well, according to reports, he graduated with an MA in Design Product at the Royal College of Art in 2018. Unfortunately, we don’t know much else about Sam’s new beau or about their romance, but based off the pics, they look as happy as could be together!
As fans know, the 28-year-old previously dated 13 Reasons Why star Brandon Flynn. Rumors of their relationship first hit the web in October 2017 after they were caught sharing in a big smooch. Then, a few days later, Sam confirmed their relationship during an interview on The Ellen Degeneres Show, and fans were living! They quickly became couple goals after that — constantly sharing cute pictures together and gushing about one another online and to the media — until June 2018, when The Sun reported that the pair had split after nine months together.
“Sam and Brandon had a real whirlwind romance. They really fell for each other,” a source told the newspaper at the time. “But they are both so busy with their careers and unfortunately things just haven’t worked out.”
The actor never publicly addressed their breakup, but in September 2018, Sam told The Times UK, “Brandon was wonderful. I’m still trying to figure out what I took from that relationship and what it meant to me. It’s still quite raw. All my relationships have ended in a nice way, never nasty.”
