Ed Sheeran's family worry over his health

Ed Sheeran's family "worry" about his showbiz lifestyle.

The 'Thinking Out Loud' hitmaker's cousin, Jethro Sheeran, 39, has spoken out about his fears for the singer's health during the past year and believes that Ed's track 'Bloodstream' is about taking the class A drug MDMA.

Speaking about his reaction to seeing pictures of Ed stumbling out of the Brit Awards after party in February, he said: "I was worried about him, I think he had had too much to drink. He was a bit embarrassed about it but what are you going to do?

"Ed is very open about drugs. He has said how he fell in love with a bean bag because he was on MDMA. That is what 'Bloodstream' is about, chemicals in his bloodstream."

What's more, Jethro thinks 24 year old Ed's split from girlfriend Athina Andrelos earlier this year left him "confused" about the female attention he receives.

He added: "It was tough for him when he split up with her, he was quite into her, he took her to Ireland and met my grandma. Now he is getting used to the fact that everyone wants to get with Ed Sheeran, he is a bit confused because if he was a taxi driver I don't think that would happen. I think they fall in love with his voice."

Meanwhile, Jethro thinks the 24-year-old singer will benefit from a well deserved break in Ghana.

He told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "I think he just wants to sit at home and watch movies. He likes the music that has come out of Ghana, he knows that there is going to be no pressure. He just doesn't want to be recognised."
