Sam Smith Reveals Why They Were Banned From Dating Apps


Sam Smith has to find love in the old-fashioned way (in person) after being banned from some of the most successful dating apps, including Tinder and Hinge. 

The “Unholy” singer, who uses they/them pronouns, recently told Canada’s Entertainment Tonight reporters that after attempting to swipe right for romance, their efforts were cut short by app security teams who accused the artist of catfishing. 

“I never did Grindr. I did Tinder once, I think I got chucked off of Tinder. I got chucked off of Hinge because they thought that I wasn’t me,” Smith recalled. 

The singer then suggested their exile was warranted, “Well, I didn’t verify my profile, so I should have done that.”

Although in Smith’s case, this wasn’t an act of catfishing–or the ill intent of posing as someone else online using stolen photographs–so the Grammy award-winning artist isn’t all that upset over it. 

Even without the online assistance, they told the outlet, “I’ve always been able to date.” Smith was previously linked to model Jay Camilleri and, before that, designer François Rocci, as well as actors Andy Newton Lee and Brandon Flynn.
