The 'A Team' singer says Taylor's perception in the media is completely wrong from what he has seen.

Ed Sheeran says rumours that Taylor Swift is a serial dater are completely untrue, and says over the past two years she has only dated two different people.

The 'Small Bump' singer has been touring with the '22' star for the past several months and says there is a "misconception" about the US singer's romantic life, and has defended her from media reports that focus on her dating history.

"The rumour that she dates a lot of people is a misconception," Ed declared to US publication OK!. "In the time that I've known her, which has been almost two years now, she has dated two people. Fact.

"In her entire life I think she's dated around five or six people," the 'Lego House' star explained, before going on to defend Taylor from the media's perception. "I don't like when people take shots at [Taylor] 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!"
