Has Taylor Swift rekindled her secret romance with Ed Sheeran? According to The Sun, the couple had a clandestine affair last March but decided to break things off, so that they could focus on their respective careers (both of which seem to be doing rather well, so perhaps it was a good move?) Since then, Taylro has been spotted dating Conor Kennedy (of the infamous US ‘JFK’ Kennedy dynasty), Harry Styles (of the infamous UK boy band One Direction) and was suggested to have been showing an interest in Brit golden boy Tom Odell.

Sheeran told The Sun “We’re good friends,” but other sources told the paper otherwise. “Taylor has always loved Ed to bits. He’s just an adorably sweet guy who makes her laugh and feel really confident… Harry had that irresistible bad boy thing but Taylor has realised she would rather give it a go with a guy who can make her happy on a different level.” According to the report, Ed Sheeran also sports a tattoo on his arm ,which is a tribute to Taylor’s Red album. Now that’s dedication for you.

Ed and Taylor reportedly spent the night together before this year’s Brit awards and stayed up chatting until around 4am, with Ed spotted doing “the walk of shame” from the hotel the next day. Ed’s previously remained coy about his chances with Taylor, telling The Sun last year “If you look at all the dudes she’s dated, they’re all tall, brown hair, brown eyes, very attractive and all the girls scream for them. I’m chubby, ginger with blue eyes.” Genuine humility there, or is Ed trying to cover up a deeper connection between this unlikely couple?
