A witness tells E! News that the night before the 2013 Brit Awards (where Taylor performed in a wedding dress and then stripped down to a skintight black ensemble) Ed arrived at Taylor's hotel and went straight to her room. From there, the twosome "stayed in the room, just the two of them, until around 4 a.m.," according to a source.
When Ed left the hotel, he got into the car that Taylor had used earlier in the day and was driven away.
Another source tells E! News that Taylor and Ed "briefly dated last spring. He thinks she is really cute and they have a great chemistry together."
They definitely get along well. Ed collaborated with Taylor on "Everything Has Changed " which is featured on her Red album. They've also performed together and, of course, are both friends with One Direction's Harry Styles.
On Ed's birthday, Feb. 17, Taylor, 23, tweeted, "So. One of my favorite human beings on the planet turns 22 today. I hope @edsheeran has the most perfect show in LA tonight! HAPPY BDAYYYY."
The next day, Ed tweeted Taylor back with a lyric from her song "22," writing, " I don't know about you, but I'm feeling pretty damn 22 right about now."
This is looking good. Fortunately for the future of catchy pop singles, Ed is opening Taylor's tour this March through September. That leaves plenty of time for potential romance, possible breakups and so much more! We can't wait.
