Ellie Goulding has FINALLY come clean on those Ed and Niall rumours

Ugh, why didn't she just say this to begin with?

Cast you mind back to 2014… Ellie Goulding was apparently dating Ed Sheeran, but he was more into it than her. He got used and then supposedly wrote Don’t about the whole mess, while she supposedly wrote On My Mind about him.

Those were crazy times.

What’s even crazier though is that our favourite Irish prince Niall Horan got dragged into the whole ~DrAmA~, Ellie was meant to have hooked up with him while she was still dating Ed.

Now, after two long years of not really saying much about the whole thing, she’s finally decided to set the record straight.

You might wanna get the popcorn ready for this...

RUMOUR CLEAR UP NO.1: She never dated Ed, they were just hanging out as friends.

"We've known each other for a few years," she told Seventeen magazine. "I think he's a really nice guy and a brilliant musician. 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. We were never in a relationship. My song is not about him."


RUMOUR CLEAR UP NO.2: She dated Niall but they make better friends than baes.

"We went on a few dates, and it was really fun," she said. "He's a really, really lovely guy. He's got the biggest sense of humour, he's very caring, and I see him as a genuine friend in the industry."

Fabbo, well that clears that up then... if you ~believe~ Ellie that is.
