While chatting with Jackie Henderson and Kyle Sandilands on The Kyle And Jackie O Show, Sheeran revealed that he is no longer in a relationship when asked about his personal life.

“I wasn’t single, I was in a relationship for a long time,” the singer, 24, who separated from his girlfriend Athina Andrelos, said.

“Do you want to be single?” Jackie Henderson asks him.

The British singer appeared sad when talking about it, which made Sandilands say, “He looks like he’s about to start crying —you shouldn’t have asked that.”

“That’s interesting. That’s the first time I’ve spoken about that,” the Thinking Out Loud singer responded.

Split rumors about the two began to circulate soon after the BRIT Awards, which they attended together.

Previously, Sheeran had dated Ellie Goulding. Back in 2013, he confirmed that he was dating the 28-year-old singer during an interview with Washington radio station Click 98.9, after they were seen holding hands during the MTV Video Music Awards.

“I mean, normal people don’t hold hands if they’re just friends,” he said then about his status relationship with Goulding.

“It was going on. And now it’s not,” he added.
