‘I’m happy’: Sam Smith tells Ellen DeGeneres about romance with 13 Reasons Why star Brandon Flynn

Singer Sam Smith sent the internet into a tailspin after he was photographed with a star of 13 Reasons Why.

The multi-platinum selling artist had denied dating anyone as recently as last month.

But now it looks like he has found romance after he was snapped making out with Netflix star Brandon Flynn.

Now Sam has opened up about the new-found romance for the first time.

Speaking to Ellen DeGeneres, he revealed he had been unlucky in love throughout writing his new album.

Sam joked he had kissed “hundreds and hundreds” of boys in his time away, before adding: “No, not that many, but I did kiss a few men.

“Ran around the streets of London and had a good time and I kind of got back to normal life last year.”

Asked about his romance with 13 Reasons Why star Brandon Flynn, Sam gushed: “No I’m not [single], which is crazy!

“It’s weird bringing out an album and not being single. When I brought out In The Lonely Hour I was so lonely.

“But now I’m singing songs about this other guy, but I’m quite happy.”

The pair looked relaxed and content as they were papped strolling through New York City together.

In one photograph, the two guys can be seen kissing while Sam has his arm around the 13 Reasons Why actor.


Speaking just a few weeks ago Sam told Beats 1 of his new music: “I’m still very, very single.

“I think I’m even more single than I was when I released In the Lonely Hour, so I’m insanely single.”

23-year-old Brandon, who plays Justin Foley, came out as gay over summer

in an emotional post to Instagram.

The Australian actor said he was inspired to show solidarity for his community after seeing a ‘vote no’ message in the sky, “looming over Sydney.”

He responded: “Thank you for raising money and hiring a plane to write your lack of support amongst the clouds.

“Too many of my friends have been kicked out of their homes, kept in the closet, beat up, killed, ridiculed by church and state, institutionalised…” he wrote.

“And you are scared that if we vote YES, you won’t be able to show your hate for Us.”

He continued: “We’ve been scared s***less our whole lives thanks to all the stigmas that surround Us, stigmas that were set in place by the same kind of people who flew that plane over Sydney.”

“We’ve fought, we’ve come out bravely even in our fear, and you wrote a message in the sky because you’re scared.”

“Equality takes courage, it worries me that too many people in this world lack the balls to stand up for what is right. #f***hate”
