Is there something in the air? The gays keep breaking up! This time it’s Sam Smith, the Grammy Award-winning pop singer, and his boyfriend of nine months, Brandon Flynn, an actor from Netflix’s 13 Reasons Why.
A few of my favorite things from 2017, as shit as some of it was can't help but see all the good! Hoping 2018 is full of ups and downs as well… saw Call Me By Your Name today and couldn't help myself… "In your place, if there is pain, nurse it, and if there is a flame, don’t snuff it out, don’t be brutal with it. Withdrawal can be a terrible thing when it keeps us awake at night, and watching others forget us sooner than we’d want to be forgotten is no better. We rip out so much of ourselves to be cured of things faster than we should that we go bankrupt by the age of 30 and have less to offer each time we start with someone new. But to feel nothing so as not to feel anything—what a waste!”
According to, the pair split because of their busy careers. A source close to Smith told The Sun, “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 pair originally got together back in December, when they posted about their relationship on Instagram and were met with a lot of positivity. They went to the Grammys together, Smith met Flynn’s family, it was a whole big gay thing. Now that it’s over, some fans are very disappointed. It’s been a big couple of months for gay breakups. Who could possibly be next?
