Uh oh! It looks like Russell Crowe accidentally spilled some tea on Ed Sheeran’s possible engagement.
In an interview with Australian radio show Fitzy & Wippa, Crowe referred to Sheeran’s current girlfriend, Cherry Seaborn, as the singer’s fiancée when discussing his friendship with Sheeran.
“He was on tour here and he was getting a bit burned out so he came up and stayed at the farm for a couple of days to get some sleep and then we became conversational mates. He has subsequently gone back to the farm with his fiancée for more time,” Crowe let slip.
During an interview he gave while on tour in Brazil, Sheeran shut down any rumours that he is engaged. “You know, he’s only met Cherry once and I didn’t introduce her… I didn’t say anything,” he said, denying Crowe’s claim. “I think he just assumed. But no, we’re not engaged.”
Sheeran also revealed that Crowe e-mailed him following the interview with Fitzy & Wippa to apologize for the mix-up.
Sheeran has yet to confirm or deny Crowe’s choice of words for Seaborn, but he has discussed his friendship with the actor. The two have one major thing in common: getting drunk.
“I’ve started hanging out with Russell Crowe because he loves getting drunk and I love getting drunk,” Sheeran said in an interview earlier this year.
“We don’t get anything from each other, other than just a night out. We get an enjoyment of hanging out rather… There is no boost in either of our careers from our association,” Sheeran revealed.
Sounds like the making of a perfect friendship.
