Taylor Swift might be dating Calvin Harris, but even if she wasn’t, her good friend Ed Sheeran isn’t thinking about hooking up with her. Although the two are really close — so close that fans believe that they’ve hooked up — Sheeran insists that’s not the case.
During a Breakfast Club interview, Charlamagne Tha God asked him if he ever “smashed” Taylor Swift, and unfortunately for those fans that were holding out for the two, he never did. Sheeran was very honest and quickly replied, “No.”

So why isn’t Ed Sheeran looking to hook up with his friend Taylor Swift? He doesn’t seem to know either, but he did joke about why he hasn’t hooked up with Swift.
“I don’t know. I met her professionally first, we were writing songs. I don’t know, I get along really well with her.”
Then, when he was pressed on the topic, Sheeran simply said that Swift is, “Too tall.”
In fact, Taylor Swift recently went out for a lunch date in New York with boyfriend Calvin Harris, and Ed Sheeran joined them.
A source told Us Weeklyabout the lunch date, “They were all laughing and having a great time.”

As the Inquisitr reported, Sheeran just got out of a long-term relationship with his girlfriend, Athina Andrelos. The couple were together for more than a year, but it didn’t last. Ed accidentally let the cat out of the bag when he was interviewed on the Kyle and Jackie O Show.

When asked about his status, Ed said, “I wasn’t single, I was in a relationship for a long time.”
When asked if he wanted to be single, Sheeran revealed that he actually was single, saying, “Um. That’s interesting. That’s the first time I’ve spoken about that. I didn’t know you were going to ask.”
Kyle Sandilands, one of the DJs at the time, said, “I didn’t even have it written down, I just wondered. I looked at you and thought, ‘He’s nice. I wonder if he’s with anyone?'”
What do you think of Ed Sheeran’s friendship with Taylor Swift?
