British pop sensation Sam Smith has called it quits with boyfriend Christian Cowan after a year of being together.
As reported by Mail Online, the 31-year-old Grammy Award-winning singer is now single and has re-entered the world of celebrity dating apps, notably using Raya, in the hopes of discovering new love.
The couple’s last public appearance was on December 14 at a New York party, marking the end of their year-long relationship.
Sam Smith and Christian Cowan, the 27-year-old fashion designer, were initially linked in January 2023. Over the past year, the pair was seen together in various cities, including London, New York, and Paris. Now, with Smith’s return to the dating scene, fans are sure to follow the singer’s journey in finding a new partner.
It was Sam’s first public relationship since their split from 13 Reasons Why actor Brandon Flynn, 30, and after they came out as non-binary in 2019.
A source told MailOnline: ‘Sam and Christian decided to end their relationship before Christmas.
‘They’re still friends and will continue to support each other in their respective careers but for now they have separated.
‘Sam has signed back up to dating app Raya and is already connecting with new people… it’s a new year and fresh start for them.’
Sam and Christian started dating in January last year after they met when the clothing designer collaborated with Sam on the costumes for their music video, I’m Not Here to Make Friends.
