Ed Sheeran is the sweetest singer in the music biz, but he’s taking aim at an unfaithful ex in his brand new song ‘Don’t’ — and it sounds like the culprit is Ellie Goulding. Keep reading to see Ed’s lyrics, plus, what he had to say about the cheating scandal!

Poor Ed Sheeran! The lovable lyricist is upset over a cheating ex, and he took to his music to express his heartache. But what could really make the song hit platinum is that he’s singing about Ellie Goulding! Even more scandalous? Ed believes that Ellie was cheating on him with One Direction‘s Niall Horan!

Ed Sheeran’s ‘Don’t’ Lyrics Fuel The Fire On Ellie Goulding Cheating Rumors

Ed Sheeran and Ellie Goulding were a short lived item, but apparently their relationship took a toll on Ed. The “Sing” hit-maker took to his music to express a past situation, in which a singer ex-girlfriend cheated on him, and fans believe that the said ex is Ellie Goulding.

“I never saw him as a threat, ’til you ­disappeared with him to have sex,” Ed sings in his new lyrics from his upcoming X album, out June 23.  The song continues, “If I show courtesy and respect to someone, I expect to receive it.”

Ed didn’t only sound off in his lyrics. He also spoke on the record to Billboard about his “Don’t” lyrics, adding more fuel to the fire.

“The last album was more young and dewy-eyed and innocent. I’ve still got very nice songs on this record. But some of them are bite-y,” Ed told the magazine. “The story in ‘Don’t’ is 100 percent true. I could have gotten nastier – there was more shit that I didn’t put in.”

Ouch! Tell it like it is, Ed!

Did Ellie Goulding Cheat On Ed With Niall Horan?

Not only did Ed tell Billboard that his new song talks about a cheating ex, but he also confirmed that his former flame was fooling around with one of his friends!

“I was seeing someone for a bit of time, and then they ended up physically involved with one of my friends in the same hotel that we were staying in, while I was downstairs,” he said. “And I feel like: Treat people how you want to be treated.”

According to the Daily Mail, fans have been buzzing about an alleged hook-up between Ellie and Niall Horan! The two reportedly hooked up at V Festival just days before the 2013 VMAs.

But the One Direction member is denying the rumors. He tweeted a very telling message to his 17.9 million followers, which has us wondering, is he talking about the Ed and Ellie saga?

Back in September 2013, after the Ed was spotted holding hands with Ellie at the 2013 MTV VMAs, Ed confirmed that he was indeed dating Ellie, telling Washington radio station Click 98.9, “I mean, normal people don’t hold hands if they’re just friends.” He also added that they had since broke up after being linked together during the summer. “It was going on. And now it’s not.”

HollywoodLifers, what do you think about this rumored love triangle? Do you think Ed is singing about Ellie? Do you think that Ellie cheated on Ed? And did Ellie actually hook up with Niall? Let us know!

I think she cheated on him… but there isn’t ready enough evidence to think it was Naill, I don’t mind one direction but I have never really liked Ellie, and the fact that this hastened I’ve lost all respect for her.

I think Ellie cheated on him, but there’s not really enough evidence to support the argument that Nial was the friend involved.
but seriously, as if you’d ever cheat on Ed – such a genuinely nice guy.

Correction of the article: “If I show courtesy and respect to someone, I expect to receive it.” is not a line in the song. Rather “trust and respect is what we do this for”. Just wanted to point that out. xP

Hey guys!
I just heard about the Ed – Ellie saga now. But honestly, I love Ellie and Niall and they would make a cute couple but I DON’T think they would do such a cruel thing guys. I also suggest that we stop spreading the rumour incase it is not true

I totally am on Ed’s side And I think that Ellie DID cheat on Ed with Niall. Ellie is such a career whore and Niall is an STD magnet, as he is in a popular boyband and he is foreign and has girls climbing all over him.
