There have of course been lots of rumours floating about of late that Harry Styles’ ex-girlfriend Taylor Swift may be rather more than friends with singer songwriter – and Harry’s pal – Ed Sheeran…
However, when quizzed about the possibility that he is romantically involved with US pop star Taylor – after he was spotted leaving her hotel in the early hours of the morning recently – Ed told New Zealand’s TVNZ that there was nothing more than friendship afoot.
However, he said, “I did go to her hotel, I did stay there ’til four and I did leave in the same clothes…
“But I was playing her my new record. It was strictly that kind of thing…
“I’m a professional.”
Modest Ed joked, “The thing that impressed me with the media is that because they wrote about it, my mates believed it.
“The fact that people can believe it makes me feel like a bit of a stud, you know?”
However, he went on to say that following the strict guidelines laid down by the Bro Code, he wouldn’t go where best mate Harry had once been.
He remarked, “I’ve got to be honest because one of my best friends did date her. I’m not that kind of guy.
“But the fact that people believed it impressed me a little bit.”
However, People report that a source reportedly close to Taylor remarked recently, “They [Taylor and Ed] spent some time together before and after she dated Harry Styles.
“Around Grammy time, things went beyond just friends.”
Meanwhile, Ed and Taylor posted for pictures backstage during Taylor’s Red Tour in Omaha, and prolific tweeter Taylor posted a few of them on the social networking site with the caption, “In other news, we now have a photo booth backstage.”
The thick plottens! Here’s a look at Taylor and Ed on-stage in Omaha this month…
