Sam Smith splashes out on £12million London mansion after asking to be referred to as ‘they’ rather than ‘he’

SINGER Sam Smith — who wants to be referred to as “they”, not “he” — has bought a £12million mansion.

The singer’s five-bed, Grade II listed home is in an ultra-exclusive district of North London.

Sam was pictured walking down the street with a cup of coffee and their headphones on

A source said: “Sam is one of the biggest popstars in the country, and has been handsomely rewarded as a result.

“But they have also been very wise with their money, had sound financial advice and invested sensibly in bricks and mortar.

“The new property is absolutely stunning and boasts a very colourful history.”

It is less than a mile from the 18th century townhouse Sam bought in 2015, next to ’80s pop star Boy George.

Four years ago Sam wrote the theme tune to James Bond movie, Spectre. He won an Oscar for it the following year, dedicating their win to the LGBT-plus community.

The non-binary 27-year-old was last year named in the annual Sunday Times Rich List, with an estimated £24million fortune.

Sam, whose hits include Stay With Me and Bond theme Writing’s On The Wall, posted on Instagram earlier this week: “I am changing my pronouns after a lifetime of being at war with my gender . . . to embrace myself for who I am, inside and out.”

Today is a good day so here goes. I’ve decided I am changing my pronouns to THEY/THEM ❤ after a lifetime of being at war with my gender I’ve decided to embrace myself for who I am, inside and out. I’m so excited and privileged to be surrounded by people that support me in this decision but I’ve been very nervous about announcing this because I care too much about what people think but fuck it! I understand there will be many mistakes and mis gendering but all I ask is you please please try. I hope you can see me like I see myself now. Thank you. P.s. I am at no stage just yet to eloquently speak at length about what it means to be non binary but I can’t wait for the day that I am. So for now I just want to be VISIBLE and open. If you have questions and are wondering what this all means I’ll try my best to explain but I have also tagged below the human beings who are fighting the good fight everyday. These are activists and leaders of the non binary/trans community that have helped me and given me so much clarity and understanding. @tomglitter @munroebergdorf @transnormativity @alokvmenon @katemoross @glamrou @travisalabanza @twyrent @chellaman @jvn @lavernecox @stonewalluk @glaad @humanrightscampaign @mermaidsgender Love you all. I’m scared shitless, but feeling super free right now. Be kind x
