Tumblin’ Ed Sheeran they call him. Well, they don’t, but they should after this calamitous footage of ginger-haired man-child taking a fall on his first night supporting Taylor Swift on tour. Maybe he was daydreaming about those rumors about him and her dating being true.

The Daily Mail reports that Sheeran was supporting Swift in front of a crowd in Nebraska, the first night supporting her current Red US Tour, and he got off to a less than steady start, when he attempted to jump from one pedestal to another, going head over heels and falling, comic-like, with his legs pointed in the air. That’ll teach him to put himself on one. However, fair play to Sheeran, he got straight back up and continued to perform to the no-doubt amused American crowd.

There was embarrassment for Ed Sheeran on opening night of Taylor Swift tour

Sheeran addressed the rumors about him and Swift to New Zealand’s TVNZ recently, saying "I did go to her hotel, I did stay there 'til four and I did leave in the same clothes. But I was playing her my new record. It was strictly that kind of thing... I'm a professional. The thing that impressed me with the media is that because they wrote about it, my mates believed it. The fact that people can believe it makes me feel like a bit of a stud, you know?" However, he said he’d never date the singer out of respect for his close friend and Swift’s ex, Harry Styles. "I've got to be honest because one of my best friends did date her. I'm not that kind of guy” he said, adding "But the fact that people believed it impressed me a little bit."
