Even though Ed Sheeran has joked about his "non-existent" love life, he's reportedly started dating Nicole Scherzinger, who used to be in the girl group The Pussycat Dolls. The "Thinking Out Loud" artist was recently spotted showing her around his hometown, and they've allegedly gone on a few dates of their own.
"As far as he's concerned, they were in the early stages of dating and he's been open about it with close friends and colleagues. It may not develop beyond those dates, but they're definitely tight," a source told The Sun.
"They're extremely close. Nicole says he is the male version of her. She loved [visiting his hometown of Framlingham with him] because, as she put it, it was 'so real'. She kept saying that."

"They were showbiz friends who saw each other on the scene. She was drawn to him over the last few months through his music. When she split from Lewis, she was heartbroken but ended up playing Ed's songs on a loop."

Apparently, the songstress even dedicated a rendition of "Don't Cha" to her rumored guy last month, saying, "This one's for you, Ed."
Since he hasn't seriously dated anyone since his split with Athina Andrelos, this is pretty big news! Of course, these two singers could just be really close friends — it sounds like Nicole has really been leaning on Ed's music since she broke up with her longtime beau Lewis Hamilton (who himself is rumored to be dating Kendall Jenner). But if they are such great friends, we're happy for them!
