Fame often comes with a price. For one, you kiss your privacy goodbye. Every little mistake or relationship that ended on a sour note makes headlines. Scandals follow celebrities if they try to keep a squeaky-clean image and move on from it. So when Ellie Goulding was celebrating her birthday, she didn’t think a past scandal would mar her night.
However, the Burn singer didn’t let the fan go that easily by bringing up the past. The 36-year-old’s savage response to the past allegations of her cheating on Ed Sheeran with Niall Horan is making headlines!
Ellie Goulding continues to slay while dismissing cheating allegations
The singer turned 36 recently, and she took to TikTok to make a birthday post. She posted a video of her dancing to Prep’s version of Harry Styles’s As It Was. A fan dug out a years-old scandal accusing her of cheating on her then-boyfriend Ed Sheeran with Niall Horan.
The comment caught the singer’s eye, and she was quick to add a response to the comment. “False!!!!! But also slay,” she wrote. The Love Me Like You Do singer sparked dating rumors with the Thinking Out Loud crooner in 2013 at the MTV Music Awards. Their relationship was short-lived and was emotionally scarring to Ed. Apparently, the Lights singer had cheated on him with Niall.
The ginger head singer had acknowledged their relationship. However, Ellie Goulding denied ever dating him. In fact, fans speculated that Sheeran had penned the song Don’t about his relationship with the blonde. Ed later clapped back at her when he remarked about friends not holding hands, clearly stating that she was lying.
In fact, right after the allegations, she was seen getting cozy with Horan after their rumored break-up. Well, ever since their breakup, they have clearly followed the rule that exes cannot be friends. Ed has moved on and is a taken man. He is happily married to Cherry Seaborn and shares a daughter with her.
