Singer on cheating talk: Ellie Goulding Cheating
Published: June 3, 2015
Singer on cheating talk: Ellie Goulding Cheating, ELLIE Goulding has admitted she dated One Direction’s Niall Horan – but denied being “in a relationship” with Ed Sheeran at the same time.
Last year Ed Sheeran wrote the song Don’t, which fans speculated was about Ellie dating both men at the same time.
But speaking about the song and the fallout, 28-year-old Ellie said she didn’t understand the controversy and had turned to Taylor Swift for advice.
She said: “I did go on a few dates with Niall but I was never in a relationship with Ed [Sheeran]. I have absolutely no idea where that came from and why it was turned into such a big thing.
“I find it so frustrating that female musicians are constantly defined by the men they have or haven’t dated. “It’s something I’ve talked about with Taylor a lot. She definitely feels that. She gets bothered by it. It’s like, you can be a great artist, you can write great songs, but the thing that everyone is going to talk about is some relationship they think you have had or not had. It’s definitely something we both think happens to female artists over male artists.”
Thankfully Ed admitted he was over the woman in the song ‘Don’t’ after he penned the lyrics, saying “I got over the anger the moment I wrote the song”.
The three are now friends again and have been pictured out on nights out and Ellie has moved on to begin dating boyfriend Dougie Poynter from McBusted.
She admitted he had been a long term crush before they began dating last year, and she thinks they will get married.
Opening up about Dougie, Ellie said: “He is definitely the one forever. He’s been through a lot, and he has a quiet depth that I love.
“And you know what, when I was a teenager, I fancied him but I thought he was so out of my league. Way too good-looking for me. Calvin Harris has already offered to play at our wedding. Not that we’ve organized one. But the offer has been made.”
