Accidents not new for Ed Sheeran
Accidents are now becoming a part of Sheeran's life, as this is for the second time that the Grammy Award winner is getting hospitalized in the past 12 months. Earlier, on January 2017, Ed Sheeran indirectly hinted that Princess Beatrice has accidentally slashed on his face. Sheeran refused to reveal more details as he believed the revelation will result in the wrath of the royal family.
"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," told Sheeran to BBC when asked about the accidental slash on his face.
According to some reports, this incident happened in November 2016 when Princess Beatrice accidentally swung the ceremonial sword which slashed Sheeran's face, just inches below his right eye.
