Proof Taylor Swift And Ed Sheeran Are NOT Dating

By: Andrea Simpson / March 8, 2013

Taylor Swift is not getting her latest inspiration from a certain red-headed Brit.

Rumors have been running rampant that the luckless-in-love country crooner had turned her heart to strummer Ed Sheeran, but according to one of the singer’s closest confidantes, it is nothing more than a strong friendship.

“They are not dating,” Sheeran’s tattoo artist, Kevin Paul, told Celebuzz in an exclusive interview. “I can assure you, they’re just good friends.”

In fact, when it comes to the opposite sex, the Grammy nominee attracts much interest… it’s just not Swift.

“Ed has loads of female friends,” said Paul, who tattooed a tribute to Swift’s album “RED” on the English singer-songwriter’s arm in October last year.

“Whenever I talk to him or sees him, he surrounds himself with tons of girlfriends.”

The pal added, “I can understand why they all like him because he’s a genuinely nice person. There is no big attitude, he’s close to his friends and he’s grounded.

“Fame hasn’t changed him at all.”

23-year-old Swift — famed for her song “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” — broke up with Sheeran’s best pal, One Direction pop star Harry Styles, in January.

Since, US-based Swift and UK-based Sheeran reportedly spent the night together before last month’s Brits awards.

Sheeran, 22, was supposedly spotted doing “the walk of shame” the next day, leaving the hotel in the same clothes he had been wearing the night before.

Though insisting nothing has happened between the pair, tattooist Paul added “if she was to get involved with Ed, they’re wouldn’t be a better guy.”

So, if it’s not Ed, who do you think Taylor will hook up with next?
