Rumors said that what started as friendship actually blossomed into a romance as Nicole Scherzinger and Ed Sheeran were seen spending time together several times. The pair is reportedly on “getting-to-know-each-other” stage. But news said the two remain good friends.
E Online quoted a friend of Scherzinger saying, “there has been nothing romantic about the two performers’ get-togethers.”
According to The Sun, former singer of girl band Pussycat Dolls Scherzinger, 37, is in a budding romance with Ed Sheeran, 24, an English singer and songwriter. The female pop singer began getting “extremely close” with Sheeran after the former’s breakup in Feb 2015 with 30-year-old Lewis Hamilton, a Formula One racer, news said.
Friends For A Long Time
Even before the two artists were seen together in public, Scherzinger and Sheeran have already been friends. But both drew closer to each other after Scherzinger found Sheeran’s songs comforting. She was at that time, nursing a broken heart.
News says they felt the connection and Ed even had Nicole wait for him backstage during one of his shows. They reportedly spent the night at Sheeran’s local pub after the show.
“As far as he’s concerned, they were in the early stages of dating and he’s been open about it with close friends and colleagues,” Hollywood life quoted a source.
“When she split from Lewis, she was heartbroken but ended up playing Ed’s songs on a loop,” Hollywood Life quoted another source.
But the lady singer’s rep assured Scherzinger’s friendship with Sheeran is such that they attend to “each other’s performances and even dedicating songs to one another.”
Just this March, Sheeran broke up with Athina Andrelos, a chef, and has since been seen dating several beauties.
