James Blunt has claimed that hit artist Ed Sheeran made up the story about Princess Beatrice cutting his face with a sword.
It was reported in November last year that Princess Beatrice cut open Ed Sheeran’s face in a mock-knighting of James Blunt that went wrong.
At a party, the ‘You’re Beautiful’ singer is said to have joked that he would love to become Sir James and Princess Beatrice took it upon herself to lend a hand…but when she lifted the sword, she accidentally swung it back, catching Ed on the cheek.
Although all parties have refused to comment, Ed did appear on The Graham Norton Show following the event and basically admitted to what happened.
Speaking on the chat show, he said: “For two weeks after, I had a huge gash on my face and would tell people I fell and then suddenly, the story came out, the alleged story came out.”
Given a privacy agreement, he admitted that he couldn’t talk about it and joked that he didn’t know what would happen if he did.
However, it would seem that Sheeran has been telling a few porky pies.
43-year-old Blunt has admitted that the story was a joke that Sheeran concocted!
Talking to Shortlist Magazine, he said: “Ed was drunk, messing around, and he cut himself. We made a fancy story up, people fell for it. It was very embarrassing.
“It’s bizarre that people fell for it. I blame him. He must be desperate – he’s trying to sell records,” he joked.
Blunt, who often tweets hilarious tweets, recently shared the song he wrote with the ginger guitarist on Twitter.
Sheeran meanwhile is storming the charts with his third studio album ‘÷’ and admitted that ‘Shape of You’ was originally written for Rihanna, with Little Mix also in the mix for releasing the song.
