Recently, English singer Ellie Goulding debunked rumors that she cheated on Ed Sheeran with the singer of One Direction, Niall Horan, over a decade ago. During the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, Ed Sheeran and the Love Me Like You Do singer were spotted holding hands, quickly spreading the rumors of their relationship. Then, the same year, a dating rumor began circulating about the One Direction star and the English singer since the couple was spotted cozying up at the 2013 V Festival in England. Later, the Love Me Like You Do singer faced backlash from fans for cheating on Ed Sheeran.
Ellie Goulding, however, must have been surprised that after ten years, she had to answer these long-standing rumors, although she is now happily married to Caspar Jopling and has a one-year-old son, Arthur Ever Winter Jopling.
Ellie Goulding Debunked Rumors of Cheating On Ed Sheeran
It was reported in 2013 that Ellie Goulding and Ed Sheeran were romantically linked, but later speculation began that Goulding had a fling with One Direction’s Niall Horan instead, that same year. The English songstress has ended those cheating rumors, but what brought her here for that?
The Burn singer uploaded a TikTok video of herself dancing to Harry Styles’ hit song, As It Was, on December 30. A TikTok user accused Goulding of being unfaithful and got personal with her.
In response to the footage, one user commented, “Can’t believe you cheated on Ed with Niall but slay fr”
In response to the comment, Goulding wrote, “False!!!! But also slay.”
After years of speculation, fans were shocked that the songstress had addressed the rumor. It was speculated for years that Goulding cheated on the Shape of You singer after he released his 2014 hit song Don’t. In his lyrics, he seemed to imply that he had been cheated on, and many fans believed it was about Goulding.
In an interview the same year, Sheeran reportedly suggested they were dating before admitting that things were over as quickly as they started. Goulding denied being a couple, but Sheeran implied differently.
A Brief Look At Ellie Goulding and Caspar Jopling’s Relationship
Ellie Goulding and Caspar Jopling married at York Minster in August 2019. They then partied in the stately grounds of nearby Castle Howard after a beautiful church ceremony at the cathedral.

Then the couple welcomed their beautiful son Arthur Ever Winter, who is one year old.
Art dealer Jopling and the Burn singer started dating in March 2017 and got engaged in August 2018.
