Ed Sheeran is one of the biggest names in music, and he has been for going on a decade now. But while the British singer-songwriter has won multiple awards and collaborated with A-listers including Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift, he largely keeps his personal life under wraps. That is, until now. Yet it still took the megastar months to confirm a much-talked-about rumor that had been swirling around his personal life. And the confession understandably broke the hearts of legions of his fans.
After all, the songwriter has the eyes of the world upon him – whether he likes it or not. So whenever the star does or says something new, the act seems to get heavily scrutinized. In October 2019, for example, Sheeran planned to update his Suffolk-based estate in the U.K., and his ideas were reportedly met with raised eyebrows. And unsurprisingly, the media has always loved it whenever Sheeran has been seen with a woman in tow. The singer rarely speaks up about his personal circumstances in public, though.
