Kate Cassidy is the loving mother of the Award-winning British singer-songwriter, Sam Smith.
Her marriage ended when Sam was 18
Kate was married to Frederick Smith. The exact date of their marriage is not known, but their union fell apart after years of togetherness.
Frederick owned a fruit and vegetable stall and later turned into the household man to support his son’s career.
Sam was 18 and was in London pursuing his musical career when they got divorced.
The heart-touching song written by Sam on their divorce left everyone in tears.
The good part is that they are still best friends. Frederick re-married in 2019. The news of his marriage was shared by Sam on his Twitter on June 30, 2019.
She knew about her son’s sexuality while he was three
Sam came out as gay when he was ten, but it was not surprising for her.
Sam, in an interview, confronted that his mother knew about his sexuality while he was three.
Being gay was not a problem for them, but the fear of not getting accepted outside the family was especially fearful for her husband.
When Sam started wearing make-ups and dressing differently, his fear escalated, worrying more about his son.
Kate had always been aware of who her son was and how he felt.
She is the mother of three children
Kate is the mother of her three beloved children. She gave birth to her first child, Sam, in 1992.
Her other daughters are Lily, 25, and Mabel, 24. The siblings are incredibly close to each other.
Growing up as a gay was not easy for Sam
As parents, they were incredibly supportive of their son being gay, which made it a lot easier for him, but he did face bullying outside.
Though he did not face much offensive bullying, it was not the easiest time.
Sam confronted he had a hard time being gay while in school. He felt like he had not met his people.
He further added being fortunate to have a good friend circle but also at the same time, some boys would be awful to him, sending an abusive message because of his sexuality.
While he was 15 to 18, he started wearing make-ups, female clothes throughout school.
As soon as he started his musical career, he hid his sexuality to avoid pressure from the industry, people, and himself until he came out publicly in 2014.
Later in 2017, he came out as a genderqueer, and in 2019 as non-binary.
Kate was fired from her job for allegedly promoting her son’s career
Kate Cassidy started her career journey as a Barclays bank clerk in Islington and ended up being a city trader.
But in 2008, she was fired from her job for allegedly promoting her son’s career.
According to Sam, the news was more offensive towards his father because he was the one who used to drive him after school to all his studios and musical theatres.
Later, she sued the firm for compensation. According to the sources, she used the compensation to set her son’s career.
Kate sacrificed her job for her son’s career. Her immense support throughout his career has paid off.
Sam’s musical career is at its peak with four Grammy Awards, three Billboard Music Awards, a Golden Globe and Academy Award under his belt.
At 29, he amassed an extravagant net worth of $45 million as a singer and a songwriter.
