Hmm, it seems all of that speculation was true!
When Ed Sheeran released his hit single, Don’t, everyone guessed it was about Ellie Goulding…but what about the other guy involved?
With Ed more or less admitting to Howard Stern that it was a member of One Direction, we can all cast our memories back to a time when Ellie was rumoured to be dating none other than Niall Horan!
While the fling may have been short lived between the two – it seems it may have happened around the time Ed was with Ellie. Poor Ed!
Although Ed didn’t admit that the guy in the song is Niall, he did basically admit it was a member of One Direction. When asked by Howard while discussing Don’t: “It was a One Direction guy, right?” Ed answers: “Well it depends which one you’re talking about.”
Ed also went on to describe how he was friends with the person involved, and as we all know he is/was besties with all of the One D lads: “I just thought it was a bit disrespectful … It’s a difficult conversation to have … He was my mate so I was just a bit like, ‘Um not cool.’”
Not cool at all, Niall!
Thankfully, Ed and Ellie are now loved up…not together obviously!
Ed is rumoured to be seeing Jamie Oliver employee, Athina Andrelos while Ellie is dating McFly's Dougie Poynter.
We hope the lads have patched it up now, though Ed still talking about it doesn't exactly scream forgiveness, does it?!
