Ed Sheeran + Ellie Goulding Might Be Pop Music’s Newest Couple [PHOTO]
Take a look at the still here from Sunday’s telecast of the MTV VMAs, and in it you’ll plainly see Sheeran and Goulding holding hands (other shots floating around also depict him putting an affectionate hand on her leg).
As soon as Ellie and Ed realized they’d been caught canoodling on camera, they tried to shrug it off by playfully hugging each other, and she later tweeted this for good measure:
I love that holding hands with my friends means we're an item. In that case I am in many relationships. Lover not a hater. #whatthef*ck

So what’s really going on? No one’s entirely sure, but Ellie certainly doesn’t seem to have a type — in the past, she’s been linked to dubstepper Skrillex, One Direction’s Niall Horan, and ‘War Horse’ star Jeremy Irvine. Maybe this time she’s just finding out if gingers have more fun.
