One Direction 2013: Is Harry Styles’ ex Taylor Swift dating Ed Sheeran?

by Anna Howell

Taylor Swift has proved that she is pretty much over her recently failed relationship with One Direction’s Harry Styles, by moving on to one of his best friends, Ed Sheeran, according to the Sun newspaper.

According to the publication this is the second attempt at romance for the pair, who secretly dated back in March last year before breaking it off to focus on their careers.

Since then Taylor has been linked to a string of A-list dates, most recently Harry Styles who she was reportedly totes serious about until an argument split them up for good whilst on holiday together in January this year.

However Ed, who reportedly has got a tattoo on his arm representing Taylor’s album Red which Taylor herself gushed about in a recent TV interview, saying that it was “the coolest thing ever”, has denied the romance, telling the Sun newspaper last night: “We’re good friends.”

Hmm, a different story can be heard from an insider source, who told the publication: “Taylor has always loved Ed to bits. He’s just an adorably sweet guy who makes her laugh and feel really confident.”

“Harry had that irresistible bad boy thing but Taylor has realised she would rather give it a go with a guy who can make her happy on a different level.”

It is also reported in the US that Ed spent the night with Taylor before the Brit Awards a few weeks ago, where they supposedly spent the night chatting till 4am, with Ed reportedly being seen doing the “walk of sham” leaving Taylor’s London hotel the following morning wearing the same clothes he had been wearing the night before, reportedly.

The clues about these two have been creeping up for a while it seems, with Taylor admitting last year that she had a thing for men with ginger hair, saying: “I like people with red hair. I would do a ginger.”

Meanwhile last December Ed said he thought he was not good looking enough for Taylor, admitting: “We had great fun when we met, but I don’t think I’m Taylor’s type.

‘I don’t think I’m Taylor’s type’ ..

“If you look at all the dudes she’s dated, they’re all tall, brown hair, brown eyes, very attractive and all the girls scream for them. I’m chubby, ginger with blue eyes.”

However, we think Taylor may disagree as she is reported as describing Ed as “one of my favourite human beings on the planet”.

With a source telling the publication: “Taylor made it clear when they go off on tour she wants Ed to be her boyfriend.

“He’s thrilled as he has always thought she’s amazing. When they split last year he always hoped they would get back together.
“They’ve both vowed not to have a nasty break-up no matter what happens.”
