Russell Crowe alleges Ed Sheeran is engaged to wed .
Actor Russell Crowe has sparked speculation his pal Ed Sheeran is engaged after referring to the singer's girlfriend as his "fiancee". The Gladiator star was chatting about his unlikely friendship with Ed on Australian radio show Fitzy And Wippa on Friday (19May17), when he appeared to let slip the Shape of You hitmaker had proposed to Cherry Seaborn. "He (Sheeran) was on tour here and he was getting a bit burned out so he came up and stayed at the farm for a couple of days to get some sleep and then we became conversational mates," Russell explained of his house guest at his coastal property in New South Wales. "He has subsequently gone back to the farm with his fiancee for more time." Russell wasn't pressed on his use of the word "fiancee", and Ed has yet to comment on the reports of a secret engagement. However, the British pop star recently admitted he "feels pretty good" about the idea of spending the rest of his life with Cherry, who he began dating in 2015 after attending high school together. "She lives three or four miles away from me, where I grew up, and we live together now," he smiled to Australian radio hosts Kyle and Jackie O in February (17).
