This just in: Sam Smith has a new man in their life.
The “How Do You Sleep?” singer was snapped by paparazzi with a guy while hanging out at a local pub in London earlier this week.

Internet sleuths wasted no time trying to identify Sam’s new beau. They quickly learned it was Francois Rocci, a French-born product and furniture designer.
According to his website, Rocci graduated with a BA in Product and Furniture Design from Kingston University in 2016, then went on to earn his masters in Design Product at the Royal College of Art in 2018.
It’s no clear whether Smith and Rocci are officially an item, or even how they met, but it has to have been recently because Smith was bemoaning being single during the pandemic back in April.
How about a looksy at his Instagram page? It’s mostly photos of his design work, but he’s got a few mysterious selfies on there, too…
