• Ellie Goulding and Ed Sheeran were a rumoured couple years ago
  • They broke up and a rumour spread about Ellie and Niall Horan
  • Goulding now set the record straight on the cheating rumour

Romance drama in the British music world?! This one involves Ellie Goulding and Ed Sheeran... and Niall Horan.

If the trio of names looks familiar, it's probably because there was a rumour that Ellie Goulding and Ed Sheeran were an item in the early 2010s, only to split when Ellie supposedly cheated on Ed with Niall Horan.

Ellie Goulding addresses THAT Niall Horan cheating rumour

The rumour survived over the years, but is there any truth to it? Well, Ellie Goulding has only now acknowledged it out of the blue.

Also interesting:

It all went down on TikTok, where a fan commented on one of Goulding's recent posts: "Can't believe you cheated on Ed with Niall but slay." 

Surprisingly, Goulding wrote back to the fan. "False!!!! But also slay," she replied, according to a TikTok screenshot.

So there you have it. Ellie and Ed did NOT split because of Niall Horan! All these years later, Ellie Goulding has put the rumour to rest...
