Ed Sheeran - Ed Sheeran's gambling spree funded by fan

Ed Sheeran's went on a gambling spree bankrolled by a Japanese businessman.

The 'Lego House' singer's recent Las Vegas casino blowout was entirely funded by a rich Google executive, who insisted on paying for his blackjack session because Ed's debut album '+' has provided the perfect soundtrack to his lovemaking.

The red-haired star told The Sun newspaper: ''I said, 'I don't know why you are doing this but cheers'. At the end he said, 'I didn't want to tell you I knew who you were but I have sex to your CD every single day.' ''

Ed, 22, is supporting his close pal Taylor Swift around the US on The Red Tour, and he joked they have become so close they have taken to calling themselves ''Frodo and Legolas'' - presumably because the travelling buddies from 'The Lord of the Rings' bear a vague resemblance to the musical duo.

Meanwhile, Taylor, 23, has said touring with Ed has been one of the best experiences ever since and having a close friend along for the ride makes everything more fun.

She told UK radio station Capital FM: ''It's been amazing. I think for both of us being on tour together and being really close friends, it's the most fun experience you could ever have.

''Everybody's always really close on a tour, but if you start out and you're already close, it just makes it less like work, having your friends out there.''
