Ellie Goulding posted a video of herself dancing to Harry Styles’ performance of the song As It Was to TikTok with the comment “birthday grooving.”  

One TikToker, however, made a joke about their private lives and said she had cheated on Ed Sheeran with Niall Horan.  

Nevertheless, Goulding quickly put an end to these allegations years later. She said that these rumours were wholly untrue. 

Although Ed Sheeran implied in an interview that they were more than just buddies, their connection ended just as abruptly as it had begun.  

Goulding, on the other hand, vehemently denied that she ever dated Ed and that they were only close friends. 

Even though Ellie indicated that she enjoys holding hands with all of her pals, it is inappropriate to reciprocate since she is dating each of them. 

When Niall Horan and Goulding were seen cuddling up to one another at the 2013 V Festival in England, relationship speculations about the two started to circulate. 

Additional reports of their alleged liaison surfaced in 2013 as well. Ellie subsequently acknowledged that they did go on a few dates.

When Sheeran’s song “Don’t” was released in 2014, it added fuel to the long-running allegations that Ellie had cheated on Ed with Horan.  

False information was published by the British media and quickly picked up by other newspapers and publications.
