When Ed Sheeran released his song Don't, there were a lot of rumours about what inspired the lyrics behind the song, with a lot of suggestions that the song was based on Ellie Goulding and the claims that she had cheated on him with Niall Horan. However, it now seems that Ellie is very angry by these claims and is now looking to take legal action against anyone who says that she cheated on Ed with Niall.
A supposed insider explained, "Last week letters arrived on the desks of a number of big news outlets saying that they faced legal action if they claimed Ed's tune was aimed at Ellie and in any way indicated bad behavior. It came as a huge surprise to many, as this story had been written about since May, and no legal notes were fired off."
The source added, "Ed had never denied that Ellie was an inspiration for his work, so this seems a strange response after such a long time. Online there are hundreds of fan and media sites that have gone much further in their descriptions of Ellie. The UK laws on libel are different to the US, so the newspapers there are now steering clear of trouble."
While Ellie Goulding is clearly not happy about the rumours that the Ed Sheeran song Don't is based on her cheating on him with Niall Horan, Ed has never denied that this is actually the case. With that said, Ed Sheeran and Niall Horan have been enjoying a bit of a bromance lately, which you would surely never do with a guy who slept with your girlfriend, right?
What do you think about all this?
