Ed Sheeran’s bitter feud with One Direction star over ex-girlfriend detailed | Music | Entertainment


Tonight, at 8:35pm on BBC Two, Ed Sheeran at the BBC airs, showing off some behind-the-scenes details of the Shape of You singer’s life and career. However, one key detail about his love life may not be explored in the show. In 2014 Ed released the song Don’t from his album Multiply, and it told the story of a short-lived relationship he experienced with Ellie Goulding.

At the time, both Ed and Ellie were enormous pop stars in the UK who were frequently on tour and had dozens of top-ten hits under their belts.

However, after a few dates, Ellie was said to have stopped talking to Ed before starting to date One Direction star Niall Horan instead.

Ed reflected on this “betrayal” in Don’t’s lyrics. They raged: “And I never saw him as a threat (you b*****d) / Until you disappeared with him to have sex, of course / It’s not like we were both on tour / We were staying on the same f*****g hotel floor / And I wasn’t looking for a promise or commitment / But it was never just fun, and I thought you were different.”

The truth really came out when Ed spoke candidly about the relationship years later.

In 2013 Ed pointed out something curious about his relationship with Ellie. He said: “I mean, normal people don’t hold hands if they’re just friends.”

He later confirmed that the lyrics were absolutely factual – but he never mentioned Ellie by name.

He said: “Don’t is just a song that’s close to the bone and definitely opened up a door that I probably shouldn’t have opened up. I just won’t say who it’s about because… I mean everyone, everyone f***ing knows anyway. But like I just won’t say who it’s about cause it’s quite a negative song.”

While he wanted to protect the identity of everyone involved in the relationship mix-up, he was adamant he was in the right.

Ellie later spoke out about the relationship herself, but her story differed from Ed’s.

She confirmed that she had dated the One Direction star, but wasn’t as forthcoming about the details of her relationship with Ed.

She said: “I did go on a few dates with Niall, but I was never in a relationship with Ed.”

The singer added: “I have absolutely no idea where that came from and why it was turned into such a big thing.”

Niall has never publicly spoken about the alleged beef between him, Ed and Ellie, but he did speak out about the A-Team singer in 2017.

At the time he made an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, where he confirmed that he had gone out drinking with Ed after a gig.

He then regaled fans with a story of how Ed ended up wearing his hockey jersey while at a bar. As a result, it seems as if their relationship has not been tarnished in any way.
