A recent claim that Ed Sheeran and Selena Gomez, his tourmate Taylor Swift's BFF, have been "hooking up" is not true, a source tells E! News. The twosome are "just friends," according to the source.
The rumors started when Ed was spotted leaving Selena's house not long ago, guitar in hand. First, there were rumors of a musical collaboration, but after Ed denied that, the rumor started that the two were seeing each other romantically, with Selena finding Ed a nice change from Justin Bieber's alleged immaturity.
Since Ed has already stated firmly that it would be unprofessional of him to date Taylor, we assume he'd probably think it would be a bit messy to date Taylor's good friend. After all, she'd be caught in the middle if things ended badly. That may have been just what happened to Ed after his buddy Harry Styles and Taylor split up.
