Sam Smith revealed they were booted from online dating after the apps didn’t believe their accounts were real.
The “Unholy” singer, who identifies as non-binary and uses “they/them” pronouns, said in a new interview that Tinder and Hinge were afraid someone would impersonate them and subsequently deleted their accounts.
“I never did Grindr,” Smith, 30, told “ET Canada” Monday. “I did Tinder once; I think I got kicked off Tinder. They kicked me off the hinge because they thought I wasn’t me.”
The Grammy winner, however, admitted that they “didn’t verify” their profiles.
“I should have,” they said.

However, Smith added that they have “always been able to hang out” despite their busy music careers.
If the “Stay With Me” crooner was able to dive back into the online dating pool, they shared that his profile bio would be dedicated to his love for his dog Velma.

“She taught me to love,” they said of the dog. “I really feel like I don’t think I love anybody but my family and friends and stuff. … It’s really taught me that.
“By the way, I miss his burdens; I haven’t seen her in a while.”

Although Smith is known for being very open about his love life, they were recently spotted getting cozy with New York designer Christian Cowan.
The “Latch” singer was photographed walking arm-in-arm with Cowan last week and even planted a kiss on her head.
The singer recently revealed that they have only had three boyfriends.samsmith/Instagram
While it is not known when the couple began their potential relationship, they were first spotted together with President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris at the White House in December 2022 for the signing of the Respect for the marriage
Smith recently told British GQ, “I’ve only had three boyfriends. All of them, equally, were amazing teachers.”
The hitmaker said they don’t need “someone else to direct me to me,” explaining, “I direct them to me. Because I know who I am. And it’s beautiful. Every relationship is different. Every two people are different. And I think it’s just learning your own language together.”
