There have been heaps of dating rumors surrounding Ellie Goulding dating Ed Sheeran and Niall Horan. But, as celebs usually do, they give nothing away other than ~cryptic~ messages in their songs.
Talking to Seventeen as this month's cover girl, Ellie finally revealed the secrets behind her romantic life over the past few years. Speaking about Niall, she confirmed they were a ~thing~:
"We went on a few dates, and it was really fun. He's a really, really lovely guy. He's got the biggest sense of humor, he's very caring, and I see him as a genuine friend in the industry."
So did she really cheat on Ed with Niall? (In case you have been living under a rock, Ed's "Don't" was reportedly about the whole thing, and Ellie's "On My Mind" was her retalliation song.) Ellie explains that she's known Ed "for a few years" and thinks "he's a really nice guy and a brillian musician." She clarified that they "were never in a relationship" and her song is 100 percent NOT about him.
Did they date though? Well...
"We've bumped into each other and we've hung out and stuff, but the thing is if I hang out with someone, it's instantly like I'm 'dating' them," she says.
Ahh, the drama. Let the girl live.
Ellie has also announced to her fans that she is taking a well deserved break from music, but reassuirng that it isn't the end, according to USA Today.
