Ed Sheeran opens up about being cheated on

'Lego House' hitmaker Ed Sheeran recently sat down for a new interview with Billboard magazine and opened up about being cheated on, revealing that he penned a track about it for his new record. 

Sheeran admitted that he wrote a song on his upcoming new album about being cheated on and feels as though this record is very personal in that he was willing to give a little more of himself: "I've still got very nice songs on this record. But some of them are bite-y. The story in 'Don't' is 100 percent true."

"I could have gotten nastier - there was more s**t that I didn't put in. I was seeing someone for a bit of time, and then they ended up physically involved with one of my friends in the same hotel that we were staying in, while I was downstairs. And I feel like: Treat people how you want to be treated."

"If I show courtesy and respect to someone, I expect to receive it. When we're in the same hotel, and I'm downstairs at my party and you're upstairs doing that, that's disrespectful."

Sheeran added "If you date a songwriter, be prepared to have songs written about you. If you do nice things, you'll have nice songs. And if you do f-ed-up things, you'll get a horrible song."

He will unveil his sophomore offering on June 23.
