Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift have become close friends, especially since the ‘A Team’ singer has been opening for Taylor‘s Red tour. He’s even had to deny rumors that the two are dating – although he did say it was good for his ego.
And now Ed is defending his friend against the haters who say she’s a serial dater. “The rumor that she dates a lot of people is a misconception,” Ed says. “In the time that I’ve known her, which has been almost two years now, she has dated two people. Fact.”
Taylor has been linked to Joe Jonas, Harry Styles, Taylor Lautner, Jake Gyllenhaal and Conor Kennedy – and that would be the end of the list, according to Ed.
“In her entire life I think she’s dated around five or six people,” he continued. “I don’t like when people take shots at [Taylor] because I do know her personally and I think people get the wrong end of the stick.”
Ed says the way the media portrays Taylor makes it seems like she’s dating everyone – but that isn’t the case. “She’s so successful and she’s so nice and sweet to everyone that she meets,” he added. “There is nothing bad to say but she was being pictured with a lot of dudes!”
