Ed Sheeran basically confirmed something that fans have long suspected—his song “Don’t” about a cheating ex-girlfriend was inspired by his former lover Ellie Goulding’s affair with One Direction’s Niall Horan.
The British singer went on Howard Stern’s radio talk show as the shock jock continually asked “That was the guy in One Direction, right?”
While Ed shied away from the question at first, he finally told fans—“Well, it depends which one you’re talking about” with a laugh.
And while we can’t help but fall head over heels in love with Ed every time we hear his voice, he wouldn’t be the first time someone has had a significant other stolen by another star!
Check out other stars who, like Niall, have ended a Hollywood relationship!
