The 'Lego House' star denies newspaper reports that he helped the pair hit it off.

Ed Sheeran has denied reports that he introduced Adele to her new boyfriend Simon Konecki.

The '21' singer confirmed that she was dating the boss of a Brighton-based charity earlier this week after the pair were spotted holidaying together in America.

It had been claimed that the pair were introduced by the 'Lego House' star while Adele was recovering from her recent throat surgery.

But Ed has now taken to Twitter to state that he had no role in the pair's relationship.

He wrote: "Dispite what some papers believe, I had nothing to do with adele meeting her boyfriend. Dunno where that rumour came from..."

Adele was forced to confirm her relationship with Simon on Wednesday (18th January) following false claims that he was still married.
