Ed Sheeran’s “Don’t”: Written About Ellie Goulding?

He’s never been one to mince words, and Ed Sheeran is brutally honest about his mistreatment at the hands of cheating ex-girlfriend in his new track “Don’t.”

The “Lego House” singer is thought to have penned the lyrics after fellow British singer Ellie Goulding stepped out on him, and he’s definitely not denying it.

Ed told the Daily Mirror, “The last album was more young and dewy-eyed and innocent. I’ve still got very nice songs on this record but some of them are bitey.”

For example, “The story in ‘Don’t’ is 100 per cent true. I could have gotten nastier, there was more sh*t that I didn’t put in. I was seeing someone for a bit, and then they ended up physically involved with one of my friends in the same hotel that we were staying in, while I was downstairs.”

Sheeran sings, “I never saw him as a threat, ’til you ­disappeared with him to have sex… If I show courtesy and respect to someone, I expect to receive it.”

In a Billboard interview he also mentioned, “If you date a songwriter, be prepared to have songs written about you. If you do nice things, you’ll have nice songs. And if you do f*cked-up things, you’ll get a horrible song.”
