Proceed with caution as the rumour mill is in full spin with this latest Ed Sheeran story.
The lovable ginger singer supposedly has a new Irish girlfriend in the form of Louise Johnston of Fade Street 'fame'. The pair have been friends for a number of years and according to a source in today's Irish Mirror they have recently "become a lot closer"
They are constantly in touch, even when he is on tour, but he is coming here soon for a gig in Dublin and they will be able to catch up then.Friends and family now know, so it is out there. Louise really cares about him and it’s going very well.
The fact that the former reality star, who is now a successful brand manager for Lovin' Dublin isn't major star has apparently helped to move the blossoming romance along.
She’s known Ed since long before he was selling out stadiums and their friendship has built up over the years, so it’s not as if Louise is a starry-eyed girl.
Ed's last girlfriend was Athina Andrelos, but the pair split after the Brit Awards in February and with his love for Ireland and all things Irish this may very well be more than just another rumour, and if so, we wish the happy couple the best.
