Swiftly done! Now Taylor is dating Ed Sheeran.
TAYLOR Swift and Ed Sheeran are dating – according to US reports.
The couple, who secretly dated last March before breaking things off to focus on their careers, have rekindled their romance.
They are said to have grown close after 23-year-old Taylor split with One Direction star Harry Styles – and Ed, 22, got a tattoo on his arm in tribute to her album RED.A source said: “Taylor’s always loved Ed to bits, he’s just an adorably, sweet guy who makes her laugh and feel really confident whenever they’re together.
“Yes Harry had that irresistible bad boy thing but Taylor’s realised she’d rather give it a go with a guy who makes her laugh.
“Taylor and Ed spent the night together before the Brits at her hotel. They stayed up talking and putting the world to rights until 4am and by the end they were a couple again.”
Ed, who is supporting Taylor on tour in the US this year, has had the utmost respect for Taylor – praising her in interviews at every opportunity.
He rushed to her side when she and Harry split in December.A source added: “She made it very clear that when they go off on their tour she wants him to be her boyfriend. He’s thrilled because he’s always thought she’s amazing.
“When they split last year he always hoped if he played his cards right and just kept being her friend they’d get back together.”They’ve both vowed not to have a nasty break-up and no matter what happens they’ll stay best pals like last time.”
