Are Ellie Goulding and her ex-boyfriend Dougie Poynter back together again? The pair split in March for not being able to spend time together due to their respective work schedules.
New reports however claimed that the blonde McFly bassist was by the side of his former flame when she was diagnosed with exhaustion.
The 29-year-old “Delirium” singer Ellie Goulding cancelled two shows in Latvia and England over the weekend after the exhaustion diagnosis.
However, in her tough time, her ex-boyfriend is there with her like a rock and lending all his support. The“Love Me Life You Do” hitmaker was advised to rest her voice as it might be at risk of burning out.
Whether or not they are dating again, one thing’s for sure: Ellie Goulding’s ill health has brought her and Dougie close to each other again.
The singer and her ex-boyfriend shared a tender moment during an emotional breakdown.
“Ellie sat next to Dougie at a screening of the documentary she’s supporting called Racing Extinction. It’s a really tough watch, but Ellie was an emotional wreck and she broke down in tears,” said a source, talking to The Sun. The insider added that Dougie was seen wrapping his arms around her as she broke down, and then they left for the pub next door.
The emotionally drained Ellie Goulding is going through one of the toughest weeks of her career. The source said that Dougie knows Ellie very well and knows how to comfort her during her low patch.
Besides, Ellie Goulding’s health scare has brought the very close two together, and has also “made them realize what they are missing.”
After their split in March, Ellie Goulding told in an interview with The Sun that she intended to take a break for a year. She said that she would do it post her tour to deal with her pain. Then, Ellie Goulding went on her tour with 100 shows worldwide and Dougie moved to Los Angeles to try his luck in acting, Mirror UK reports.
However, Dougie admitted that he still loved Ellie Goulding. Meanwhile the singer told post-split that she hoped things would work out between them and that they had “something special.” Dougie moved back to the UK eight weeks back, and the former couple have come even closer now.
