Ever heard the expression over before it started? Well that seems to be the case with Ed Sheeran and Nicole Scherzinger as the couple have reportedly now split up just weeks after it became known that they were an item.

The pair recently became an item after Sheeran broke up with his partner Athina Andrelos while Scherzinger split from long time boyfriend Lewis Hamilton. It all happened rather quickly too after Sheeran invited Nicole to be a special guest at his concert at Wembley Stadium.

It is believed that the age gap between the Ed and Nicole was the main contributing factor for the break up. Sheeran is 24 years of age meaning that he is a full 13 years Scherzinger's junior which you would imagine makes it that little bit harder to share a lot of common interests.

However, despite that, they enjoyed a couple of intimate dates on Sheeran's home patch and Nicole listened to plenty of Ed's music in the aftermath of her Hamilton break up so there are plenty of seeds for strong friendship. A friend of Nicole's told The Mirror "They were never serious and it’s now old news. The age gap was too big for them but they remain on good terms."

Meanwhile, the Formula One star Hamilton has moved on from Scherzinger to become quite close with Rihanna in what seems like a whirlwind relationship. They were spotted partying and enjoying each others company in Barbados earlier this month.
