Sam Smith linked to boyband singer

Sam Smith reportedly has a new boyfriend.

The 23-year-old singer - who recently won an Oscar for his 'Spectre' theme tune 'Writing's on the Wall' - has been spotted locking lips with bisexual Franklin Lane singer TayTay Starhz.

A source told the Sun on Sunday: "Sam is really into Tay and they have spent a lot of time together.

"They were in Freedom Bar in central London last weekend and couldn't hide their attraction to one another from fellow clubbers.

"Sam kept cheekily grabbing Tay when he thought no one was looking and they even had a snog at the end of the night after ending up at club XXL until 5am."

And they also reportedly enjoyed drinks together at a London hotel where they were seen "kissing in front of lots of people".

However, a source close to Sam claims they are just friends.

The insider told Metro.co.uk: "Sam and Tay are just very good friends, that's all. Sam and TayTay were out with a whole posse of people, including Sam's band members. They were just having a fun night out."

Sam previously admitted he had never had a proper romance with another man until 2014 but insisted he doesn't ever mind being single because he feels "comfortable" alone.

He said: "I was in a relationship for a few months before Christmas, but I really have an issue with relationships.

"In fact, I have never really had a relationship up to [the end of 2014]. I am just very comfortable and happy alone."

Meanwhile, TayTay hit the headlines when he was spotted kissing married TV presenter Zoe Ball, wife of Fatboy Slim DJ Norman Cook, in a London club last year.
