Ellie Goulding and Dougie Poynter shocked the entertainment industry when they announced their split early this year. However, the McFly singer said that they still love each other despite the break-up.
“We love each other very much,” Dougie Poynter said in an interview with The Sun, as reported by Mirror UK. “We are the best of friends.”
The American singer revealed that they even hung out at Coachella all day together with their friends. Ellie Goulding also performed at the music festival in California.
“It was really, really cool. Everything is totally fine,” he added.
Ellie Goulding and Dougie Poynter broke up last January after two years of being together. They also had a brief split last year before reuniting again.
When asked what might have been wrong about their relationship, the 28-year-old singer said that bad timing took a toll on their romance.
“It’s just both being all over the place,” he said. “Like I said, we still get on really well. She’s one of the most amazing people I’ve ever met. But just right now, it’s hard. I’m single now.”
The ex-couple’s romance was also said to have caused by the McFly star’s recent relocation in Los Angeles to chase his acting career.
Meanwhile, Dougie Poynter and Ellie Goulding also stirred rumors saying they might be back again as the “Love Me Like You Do” singer said that what they have is something “special.”
“Maybe,” Ellie Goulding said. “I hope so. We have something I know is special and I think other people see it – my friends see it, my family see it…”
The “Burn” singer also added that their story was an “unfinished” one and that her ex-boyfriend was a “real gem.”
