Ed Sheeran confirms he is single in an interview with The Kyle and Jackie O Show on KIIS 1065.
After dating the 24-year-old Athina Andrelos for over a year, the “Thinking Out Loud” singer was surprised to be asked about his relationship status from the Australian radio station.
“I wasn’t single, I was in a relationship for a long time,” he said.
The station’s DJ, Kyle Sandilands continued with a surprise follow up question asking if Ed was single now. Sheeran confirmed “Yes.”
The red-headed vocalist was clearly thrown off with the question and surprised it was asked.
“He looks like he’s about to start crying – you shouldn’t have asked that,” said Sandiland’s co-host Jackie O.
“Erm … well that’s interesting, that’s the first time I’ve spoken about that,” Sheeran replied.
Sandiland apologized for the question adding he didn’t know about the singer’s recent breakup. The singer replied “I didn’t know you were going to ask.”
This breakup follows a string of rumors claiming the couple was taking a break from the relationship. Athina has yet to comment on the break up. Either way, we wish the best to both Ed and Athina!
