Ellie Goulding on rumours she cheated on Ed Sheeran with Niall Horan

If you're big into gossip from 2013, you'll be happy to know Ellie Goulding has finally responded to rumours she cheated on Ed Sheeran with Niall Horan. MAN we love celeb stuff like this.

Cast your mind back a whole decade, and you might remember the drama that surrounded Ellie, Ed and One Direction's Niall at the time. It all started when Ed and Ellie were photographed holding hands at the MTV VMAs in 2013, sparking romance rumours.

Months later, Ed released 'Don't', a song with lyrics that suggested an ex partner who makes money in "the same way" as him (by, er, singing?), had cheated on him with a friend that he never saw as "a threat". The lyrics added that the partner "disappeared with him to have sex" while they were all staying in the same hotel.

In an interview with Billboard at the time, Ed said the lyrics were "100 per cent" true, adding, "I could have gotten nastier — there was more s*** that I didn’t put in."

In 2015, Ellie confirmed to Elle that she and Niall had been on dates around that time, but denied ever being involved with Ed. "I did go on a few dates with Niall, but I was never in a relationship with Ed. I have absolutely no idea where that came from and why it was turned into such a big thing."

Now, she has responded to the rumours again, categorically denying them. It all started when the singer posted a TikTok dancing in a black outfit. A fan commented, "Can't believe you cheated on Ed with Niall but slay."

Ellie replied, "False!!!! But also slay."

That's the end of that one, then. Thankfully, all's well that ends well - Ed is now married to Cherry Seaborn and has two daughters, while Ellie recently welcomed her first child with husband Casper Jopling.
