This question is on a lot of fans’ minds: Is Ed Sheeran Gay? Well, the “shape of you” singer is happily married to a lovely woman named Cherry Seabron now, but the question is…what makes people think that Ed Sheeran might be gay?
This rumor started back in 2012 on social media. It went viral at that time. However, Sheeran took to Twitter to clear this up. He told fans that he was not dating anyone at that time.
After that tweet, most people understood Ed Sheeran’s sexual orientation, but the rumor didn’t disappear completely. In 2020 some people asked questions on social media about whether Ed Sheeran was gay or straight. People even get confused about his nationality as well.
It seems pretty difficult to convince those people that he’s not gay. But, on the other hand, Ed Sheeran’s dating life wasn’t private.
He’s had several girlfriends in the past, including The “Love Me Like You Do” singer Ellie Goulding.
In 2013, while Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift were in Atlanta for Taylor’s Red Tour, Sheeran hired backup dancers from a Gay strip club. However, I don’t think this news has any relevance to Ed Sheeran’s sexuality.
Is Ed Sheeran Gay Or Straight?
First of all, Ed is straight, and he has clarified that on social media several times. Fans are usually curious about their favorite celebs’ lives, but sometimes, people become extremely abusive to these social accounts.
For example, they spread rumors, and as a result, a lot of fake news occurs on your social media timeline. Ed has had many girlfriends, and he’s married. Therefore, it is nothing but a rumor.
Why did People think that Ed Sheeran is Gay?
Celebrities are used to facing cyberbullying. Ed Sheeran previous quit Twitter because of cyberbullying. Sometimes we forget that a celebrity has their own personal life as well.
In 2014 a video went viral when Ed Sheeran kissed Brent Morin in a live episode of Undateable. But, of course, it was all just part of the show.
Moreover, in 2017 he kissed Keith Lemon for real. These things happen all the time with celebs. Therefore, based on those kisses, we can’t say that he is gay.
But in the case of Ed Sheeran, these videos went viral on various social platforms and made some people think Ed Sheeran isn’t straight.
Did His Marriage Help People Forget This Rumor?
Well, the fact that Sheeran was dating women wasn’t able to eliminate the misunderstanding about his sexuality. But in 2018, finally, the British singer married his childhood friend and school classmate Cherry Seabron.
And this marriage helped him to remove the label of “Gay.” Now people know the answer to this question is that he’s not gay. He’s straight and happily married and a father of one child.
Now, Ed knows to keep his personal life safe from social media trolls. Unfortunately, cyber abuse has had a significant impact on his personal life.
I hope it is clear now that Ed Sheeran is not gay. Some people were bullying him. We should refrain from cyberbullying.
Moreover, don’t let people spread fake news on social media. We should always respect others’ personal lives.
