Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift have been best friends for like forever. Now, it seems that Sheeran is building a firm friendship with Taylor’s boyfriend, Scottish DJ Calvin Harris. Sheeran and Harris were reportedly out partying in Las Vegas last night, and Sheeran’s rumored new girlfriend, Cherry Seaborn, was along for the ride. Rumors about Ed’s love-life are never far away since he split with long-term girlfriend, Athina Andrelos, back in January this year.
Since Sheeran split with Athina, he has been linked with a succession of beautiful women. Most recently, as reported in the Inquisitr, Sheeran was rumored to be dating former Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger. It seems that the gossip was incorrect, and in recent days, Sheeran has consistently been linked with Cherry Seaborn, an old school friend who was spotted with Ed in New York City and now in Vegas. According to the Daily Mail, Ed and Cherry, who lives in New York, spent time together at a Mets baseball game.
Ed is in the U.S. for the North American leg of his world tour, which rolls into Orlando Florida tonight. Along the way, Sheeran took some time out to hook up with Calvin for a bash at the MGM Grand last night. According to the Mirror, Harris took time out from supplying the beats to snap a selfie with Ed, and the picture shows Cherry being very cozy with Sheeran.
Yahoo! Celebrity says that Calvin captioned the picture, “what a crew at Wet Republic today.” The picture also shows Emil Nava, who has worked with both Sheeran and Harris in the past. The group looks to be partying hard and having a lot of fun. Speculation that Ed and Cherry may be dating has increased in recent days because the couple has been seen together frequently and openly.
According to the Daily Mirror, Ed and Cherry both attended Thomas Mills High School in Sheeran’s hometown, Framlingham, Suffolk. It is believed that the pair had lost touch, but they reconnected recently when Ed started following Cherry on Twitter. Neither Sheeran nor Seaborn have made any comment about their rumored relationship, though Ed did attempt to deny any involvement with Scherzinger when he said in interview that he had not had any romantic attachments since splitting with Andrelos.
Sheeran is touring North America until September 25, so celebrity watchers will have plenty of opportunities to see how much time Ed and Cherry spend together in the coming weeks.
