Lego House singer Ed Sheeran has insisted that reports surrounding Taylor Swift's love life are sensationalised.

The 22-year-old singer is currently touring the world with the We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together star, and Sheeran is adamant that the public's impression of her as a serial dater is wrong.

Speaking to Ok! Magazine, Sheeran said: "The rumour that she dates a lot of people is a misconception, because in the time that I've known her, which has been almost two years now, she has dated two people. Fact. And in her entire life, I think she's dated around five or six people.

"I don't like when people take shots at her because I do know her personally, and I think people get the wrong end of the stick. She's so successful, and she's so nice and sweet to everyone that she meets, there is nothing bad to say but she was being pictured with a lot of dudes."
