Sam Smith splits with boyfriend? Hints at it in concert, on Instagram

Seems as if Sam Smith just couldn't stay with boyfriend Jonathan Zeizel.

The "Stay With Me" singer and Zeizel are believed to have split, if the musician's behavior at a Tuesday concert is to be taken at face value.

The Grammy-nominated British crooner, who went public with the model just last month, seemingly announced the news while while addressing fans when he was performing at Toronto's Air Canada Centre.

Before singing "Good Thing," which was inspired by another breakup, Smith broke the news in an aside, People and Us Weekly reported. Incidentally, he and Zeizel met while shooting the single's music video, but it's unclear how long they were actually dating.

"This next song, it's a song that's very, very dear to my heart because when I fell in love with the person who inspired the majority of this record, I had this fight in me to basically end it when I could've carried on, and carried on and made it into 'The Lonely Hour Part Two,'" he laughed in fan footage posted on YouTube.

"But I decided to write this song, and, the day before I wrote this song, I basically went on my phone, and I deleted their number and I deleted everything. And the reason why this song is very special for me today is that I've actually had to do a very similar thing today with someone I've been seeing," he said to the cheering arena.

Then, the octave-jumping 22-year-old took to Instagram to show what we can only assume is the way he deals with a breakup.

"Sometimes you just need to lay in bed with a glass of red wine and a football T shirt and listen to Joni Mitchell. It's been a sad day. Beautiful show, but sad day x," he wrote, sharing a pouty-faced snapshot.

He followed it up with a black-and-white concert photo captioned: "I'm an old romantic, that's what they say to me."

"One of those days x," he added in another post, sharing with his followers that he was watching an adaptation of Jane Austen's "Sense & Sensibility."
