Ed Sheeran Hints That a One Direction Guy Stole His Girlfriend

One Direction's Next Stop
See the boy band touch down in Tokyo
If you’ve heard Ed Sheeran’s song “Don’t” then you’ve probably wondered who the song is about. The song talks about a girl Ed was seeing who hooks up with one of Ed’s friends behind his back. Then, well, Ed found out and the two were over.

After the song was released, rumors went flying that the song was about Ellie Goulding and One Direction’s Niall Horan. So, is Ed now confirming the rumors? Maybe. Ed went on Howard Stern’s radio show and discussed the song. Read on to find out what Ed had to say.

For those of you that haven’t heard the song, some of the lyrics include, “I never intended to be next, but you didn’t need to take him to bed that’s all. And I never saw him as a threat, until you disappeared with him to have sex of course.” Yikes!

When host Howard Stern talked about the song and asked, “It was a One Direction guy, right?” Ed responded, “The papers says a lot of things. I have kept my mouth shut about a lot of things. I think if you add any fuel to any fire…”

Pressing the issue, Howard kept asking how Ed felt about the situation. Ed revealed, “I didn’t really come out of that situation upset, I was just pissed off. I just thought it was a bit disrespectful.”

But, don’t worry about Ed. He says he was over it right after, “I got over it as soon as the song was done and the song happened pretty soon after.”

Ed does confirm that he confronted the ex-friend. Ed dished, “It’s a difficult conversation to have… He was my mate, so I was just a bit like, ‘um not cool, but…’” Ed even said the two haven’t spoken since then!

Not willing to let Ed off the hook, Howard asked again about the unnamed bro. “That was the guy in One Direction, right?” Ed replied with a, “No.” But, he then said, “Well, it depends which one you’re talking about.” Hmm!

If we look closely at the 1D members, all of them are in a relationship except for Harry Styles and Niall. Harry and Ed seem to be too good of friends for Harry to do something like that. So, does that mean we have our answer?
