Ed Sheeran confirmed that he recently broke up with his longtime girlfriend Athina Andrelos, after dating for over a year. While appearing on the Australian radio show KIIS 1065, one of the hosts asked if he was single — and he had to spill about his breakup.

The "Thinking Out Loud" singer responded, "I wasn't single, I was in a relationship for a long time."


When he was asked to clarify if that means he's single now, he responded in such a reluctant way that the other host said, "He looks like he's about to start crying."

We feel so bad for Ed. It sounds like he's going through a rough time! There were previously rumors that Athina was mad about Taylor Swift's BRIT Awards speech (when she gushed about her friendship with the singer), so we hope that wasn't part of the reason that they ended things. Maybe it was just their crazy-busy schedules? He's been busy touring all around the world.
