Ed Sheeran Is Being Sued Over 'Photograph'

Ed Sheeran is facing a lawsuit from a songwriting duo claiming “Photograph” was copied.

The 25-year-old singer is being sued for $20 million in damages by the duo, who believe the hit song borrowed heavily from their original “Amazing.”

“Photograph,” which was released in 2015, allegedly contains 39 notes that are “identical in pitch, rhythmic duration, and placement in the measure” to their 2012 composition performed by Matt Cardle (via NBC).

Ed and his label have yet to comment on the suit.

Ellie Goulding Says 'On My Mind' is Not About Ed Sheeran

Ellie Goulding is the picture of pretty on the April 2016 cover of Seventeen magazine, on newsstands March 15.

Here’s what the 29-year-old singer had to share with the mag:

On being an inspiration: “I don’t want girls to get to my age and feel like they’re not pretty enough, not thin enough, or they’re not good enough for something or someone. I’m naturally compassionate—that’s something I really like about myself. I always consider other people before myself, and I think that’s what I try to do with my music. I want to write lyrics that girls can relate to. I’m a girl; I know how hard it is… If girls are anything like me when I was a teenager, then I want them to know everything is going to be okay.”

On going out with One Direction‘s Niall Horan: “We’re still friends. We went on a few dates, and it was really fun. He’s a really, really lovely guy. He’s got the biggest sense of humor, he’s very caring, and I see him as a genuine friend in the industry.”

On whether she has dated Ed Sheeran and that “On My Mind” is about him: “We’ve known each other for a few years. I think he’s a really nice guy and a brilliant musician. We’ve bumped into each other and we’ve hung out and stuff, but the thing is if I hang out with someone, it’s instantly like I’m ‘dating’ them. We were never in a relationship. My song is not about him.”

Taylor Swift Writes Ed Sheeran the Sweetest Birthday Message

Taylor Swift is so proud of her pal Ed Sheeran!

The 26-year-old entertainer took to Instagram to share a sweet message for her longtime friend on his birthday.

“Looking back on the highlights of my life, there’s a moment I’ll never forget from a day in London about two years ago,” Taylor wrote. “I was in town to play the O2 and I was out shopping on my day off. My friend Ed Sheeran met up with me in this little shop where I was buying ballet shoes. He walks in and says ‘you have to hear this new song. I think it’s the best one I’ve ever written.’ And then, as usual, he pulls out his phone and gives me headphones. I sat there on a bench in that store and heard ‘Thinking Out Loud’ for the first time, as little kids were picking out tutus and leotards next to us.”

She continued, “Little did we know it would go on to be first dance song at countless weddings all over the world, become Ed‘s biggest hit, and eventually go on to win him Song of the Year at the 2016 Grammys. Ed and I had been on tour together all year on the Red Tour and we saw each other almost every day. I lived for the moments he would burst into my dressing room with a new song to play me. It happened so often that it became normal, and I don’t think he ever knew how much it meant to me that he wanted me to hear his songs first. I don’t think he ever knew how inspired I was by his drive and passion to constantly create new art. But it’s his 25th birthday today, so I’m saying it now. You deserve everything you have, and everything you will continue to achieve, Ed.”

“And an extra congratulations to the incredible Amy Wadge on your two Grammys,” Taylor added for the co-writer of the track.

In case you missed it, Ed won Song of the Year for “Thinking Out Loud.”

Ed Sheeran Set to Get Surgery for Burst Eardrum in January

Ed Sheeran has to go under the knife early next year.

The 24-year-old singer/songwriter is scheduled to have surgery on a burst eardrum.

“I have to have an operation in January on my ear because I stupidly jumped off a yacht really high up and smashed it,” Ed told Australia’s Nova radio (via THR). “I landed wrong, and it burst my eardrum so I have to go and get a graft, which means I’m not allowed to fly for a while, so it’s kind of good, it means I have to stay at home.”

He added, “It’s the most painful thing having a hole in your eardrum and having water go in.”

Feel better, Ed!
