The starry-eyed hitmaker uploaded a TikTok video over Christmas and responded to a fan who wrote, “I can’t believe you cheated on Ed with Niall but kill”.

Ed memorably wrote Don’t about an ex cheating on him with a friend – rumored to be Niall and Ellie.

Ellie and Ed were linked after they were spotted holding hands at the MTV VMA Awards in August 2013.

But Ellie immediately took to Twitter to deny anything was going on between the two, saying they were just good friends.

In a Tweet written that night, which she later deleted, she wrote, “Love that holding hands with my friends means we’re an item.”

Ellie also added: ‘In this case I’m in many relationships. Lover not a hater. #whatthef**k.’

But Ed offered a somewhat different version of events while discussing his friendship with the Starry Eyed hitmaker on US radio show Clock 98.9 later that year.

Asked about the rumours, he revealed the couple were more than good friends at the time, explaining, “I mean, normal people don’t hold hands if they’re just friends.”

Meanwhile, in 2015, Ellie admitted to having a fling with Niall Horan but insisted she never dated Ed in an interview with Elle.

She said: ‘I’ve been on a few dates with Niall, but I’ve never had a relationship with Ed [Sheeran]. I have absolutely no idea where it came from and why it became such a big thing.

“I find it so frustrating that female musicians are constantly defined by the men they’ve dated or haven’t dated. It’s something I talked about a lot with Taylor (Swift). She definitely feels it.

‘She’s bored. It’s like, you can be a great artist, you can write great songs, but the thing that everybody’s gonna talk about is a relationship that they think you either had or didn’t have. . It’s definitely something that we both think happens to female artists rather than male artists.

Ed, meanwhile, said in an interview that the song Don’t helped him “get over the anger” about the woman who betrayed him.

Ellie then found love with Caspar Jopling and the couple welcomed their first child with son Arthur in 2021, while Ed married childhood sweetheart Cherry Seaborn in 2019 and is a proud dad of two.
