Ellie Goulding has quashed a long-standing rumor that she suggested she cheated on Ed Sheeran with Niall Horan.
On New Year’s Eve, the Burn singer posted a video to TikTok showing herself dancing to the Harry Styles song As It Was.
Later, one follower commented, “can’t believe you cheated on ed with niall but slay fr(sic)”, referring to 2013 reports that Ellie dated both Ed and Niall.
However, the British star quickly dismissed the claim.
“False!!!! But also dead,” the 36-year-old insisted.
During an interview for ELLE UK in 2015, Ellie claimed she was never romantically involved with the hitmaker Shape of You.
“I’ve been on a few dates with Niall, but I’ve never dated Ed. I have absolutely no idea where that came from and why it’s become such a big thing. I find it so frustrating that female musicians constantly defined by the men they have or have not dated,” she noted at the time.
Ellie married Caspar Jopling in 2019 and the couple welcomed a son in April 2021.
