When an interviewer asked him if his ex regretted breaking his heart, Sam came back with an answer that makes him the posterchild for every gay boy whose ever gone through some heartbreak:
“It was my fault. I fell in love with him. I shouldn’t have done that.”
And, of course, the line that’s uttered so often after a breakup that it’s almost a cliche:
“We’re still friends. It’s all good.”
“I made a mistake by posting pictures of us on Instagram and making it seem more serious than it was. I’ve learned that I need to hold off before I start getting the public involved.”
However, he does say in that interview that the Ziezel breakup wasn’t major, so our guess is that the last major heartbreak was with someone he decided not to introduce to the world.
Career-wise, Smith has little to cry about. Though he is technically on a “break” from his music career, he still found the time to record the theme song to Spectre and picked up a Golden Globe for his trouble.
Honestly, if bad luck in love leads to music as good as In The Lonely Hour, we hope that men are lining up to break his heart for years to come.
