The Ed Sheeran dating rumors just keep coming. Earlier this month, Sheeran was rumored to be dating Pussycat Doll singer Nicole Scherzinger, but reports are now indicating that the couple may have split up — that is, if they were ever together in the first place.
According to a report from the Daily Mirror, the couple just couldn’t overcome the 13-year age gap. Sheeran is 24 years old and Scherzinger is 37 years old.
“They were never serious and it’s now old news. The age gap was too big for them but they remain on good terms.”
The rumors developed after Sheeran and Scherzinger allegedly traveled around Ed’s hometown together as Sheeran showed Scherzinger all the sites. Reports indicated that Sheeran even introduced her to his parents and took her to his favorite local pub. According to the Sun, at the time a friend of Sheeran’s said,
“As far as he’s concerned they were in the early stages of dating and he’s been open about it with close friends and colleagues. It may not develop beyond those dates but they’re definitely tight.”
A friend of Nicole’s added, “They’re extremely close. Nicole says he is the male version of her.”
The Ed Sheeran dating rumors intensified after Scherzinger shared this photo of herself and Sheeran on Instagram:

Whether the dating rumors were ever true isn’t clear, but one thing is for certain: Ed Sheeran’s love life has been in the spotlight quite a bit as of late. If you believe the rumors, Sheeran has dated Selena Gomez, Scherzinger, and Louise Johnston this summer.
The Scherzinger rumors seemed to have the most credibility — especially after Scherzinger dedicated a song to Sheeran during a gig earlier this month — but it seems as if even those dating rumors have also begun to fizzle.

Before Sheeran, Scherzinger was linked to 30-year-old racecar driver Lewis Hamilton. Sheeran’s last confirmed romance was with Athina Andrelos.
