Ellie Goulding quashed long-running rumors that she cheated on Ed Sheeran with One Direction member Niall Horan several years ago.
Goulding addressed the unfounded rumors when netizens commented on her TikTok video last week where she dances to a cover of Harry Styles’ “As It Was.”
“Quick boob check, then we’re on our birthday 🤣🖤,” she captioned the video posted on Saturday.
One TikToker decided to take on Goulding and accuse her of being unfaithful.
“I can’t believe you cheated on Ed with Niall, but slay it [for real,]wrote the commenter below Goulding’s video.
But the “Lights” singer quickly dropped the accusation, writing: “Wrong!!!!! But slaughter also.”
Goulding, 36, and Sheeran, 31, first sparked dating rumors when they were seen holding hands while sitting in the audience together at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards.
While Goulding denied that they were a couple, Sheeran reportedly hinted that they were dating in an interview that year before admitting that things ended as quickly as they began.
“I mean, normal people don’t hold hands if they’re just friends,” Sheeran told Washington radio station Click 98.9 (via Us Weekly) at the time, before adding, “It used to go on. Now it’s not anymore.”
But long-running speculation that Goulding cheated on the “Shape of You” singer swirled when he dropped his 2014 hit song “Don’t.” His words seemed to indicate he had been scammed and many fans gathered that Goulding was the cheater in question.
And I never saw him as a threat (you bastard) / Until you disappear with him to have sex. Of course / It’s not like we were on tour / We were staying on the same floor as the f-king hotel / And I wasn’t looking for promise or commitment / But it was never fun And I think you’re different,” Sheeran sings in his song.
An English newspaper claimed that the lyrics were about Goulding cheating on Sheeran with Horan.
“I never let her get away with it [who the song was about]Sheeran told Entertainment Weekly in May 2015. What happened was that a newspaper in England had just published that it was confirmed when it never was. ”
Goulding and Horan, now 29, were said to have had a gossip that year and sparked dating rumors when they were spotted looking cozy at the V-Fest during the Kings of Leon set.
But Goulding finally shut down the gossip that’s been going on for years thanks to her direct response to Ok TikTok.
Sheeran has since moved on with Cherry Seaborn, whom he first met in high school. He confirmed that they tied the knot in 2019 and share two daughters: Lyra Antarctica, 2, and 9-month-old Jupiter.
Meanwhile, Goulding married Caspar Jopling in 2019 and shares a one-year-old son named Arthur Ever Winter.
