Ed Sheeran is a man who is unafraid to put his heart on his sleeve and write music about it. For that, I commend him. He’s released two records that made listening and crying to sad acoustic music popular – how many artists can you say that about? (Bon Iver doesn’t count, sorry.)
Ed Sheeran, who is an English-born singer-songwriter, released his first EP back in early 2011 and later released his official debut album, + later that year. In 2014, he released his second album, X<. The man shot to stardom in only three years making acoustic music. I can’t stress that enough. Acoustic music. It’s incredible. I never thought I would hear Ed Sheeran shuffled after a Big Sean song, that’s all.
Given that Ed Sheeran is such a musical star, it also means that he’s dated women of equal fame caliber. Although he is quite the private man, his relationships still broke into the entertainment world. Let’s take a look at who Sheeran has dated over the years, shall we?
Ellie Goulding 2013-2013
After Ed Sheeran was spotted holding hands with Ellie Goulding at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, fans were convinced that they were dating. Sheeran fanned the flames by teling Click 98.9, “I mean normal people don’t hold hands if they’re just friends. It was going on. And now it’s not.”
Ellie Goulding, on the other hand, said the exact opposite. She said, “I have absolutely no idea where that came from and why it was turned into a such a big thing.”
Yikes. I assume that Ed Sheeran wrote a sad song about it afterwards.
Athina Andrelos 2014-2015
Athina Andrelos was Ed Sheeran’s former tour manager and is now his current chef. She’s a woman of many talents. The pair began dating in 2014 and reportedly broke up after the 2015 Brit Awards. Sheeran kept their relationship private – but appeared to be pretty emotional about the split after being asked during an interview about whether he wanted to be in a relationship or single.
Cherry Seaborn 2015-2015
Only six months after Ed Sheeran split from Athina Andrelos, he was linked to Cherry Seaborn. The two knew each other before becoming romantically involved as they attended Thomas Mills High School together in Suffolk, England. Isn’t that lovely?
Nicole Scherzinger 2015-2015
Ed Sheeran and Nicole Scherzinger started dating after Scherzinger broke up with Lewis Hamilton. The pair started spending time together after Sheeran invited Scherzinger to one of his sold-out shows at Wembley Stadium.
The two broke up because the 13 year gap was too large for the two.
Now? Well, now, Ed Sheeran is currently single. This is your chance (guys and gals) to swoop in on the emotionally-vulnerable musician!
