This Is The Real Ed Sheeran And No, Lady Gaga Did NOT Mistake Him For A Waiter!
A parody Twitter account has caused a stir online after sending out a fake tweet about Ed's encounter with Mother Monster at the Grammys...
Many media outlets were reporting that Sheeran had tweeted Mother Monster saying: "I love @LadyGaga. Spoke to her earlier and she mistook me for a waiter.
"Gotta love the #GRAMMYs. #INeedANewSuit? Aha."
However, they had actually been fooled by a FAKE account attributed to Ed - which was clearly missing the blue verified tick and was actually called @edsheersan. Duh!
And, just in case you were in any doubt, the man himself (that’s the REAL Ed) took to Twitter this morning to set the record straight.
He wrote: “Newspapers are writing stories based on tweets from a fake parody account, that's what it's come to.”

Meanwhile, the owner of the parody account (that’s Ed Sheersan folks) has tweeted their disbelief that the press thought the Gaga post was real.
They also reached out to Ed, writing: “Don't sue me ily @edsheeran.”

Let’s hope the Thinking Out Loud singer sees the funny side… eventually!
