James Blunt Says Ed Sheeran Lied About Princess Beatrice Cutting Him With A Sword!
Last year in November, singer Ed Sheeran said he had sustained a cut to his face after Princess Beatrice allegedly cut him with a sword.
James Blunt now says that is a complete lie! The 43 year old You’re Beautiful singer was with 26 year old Sheeran when he accidentally cut his cheek.
When photos first surfaced of Sheeran’s cut up face, the explanation he gave was that Princess Beatrice, 28, had been pretending to ‘knight’ Blunt using a ceremonial sword and accidentally cut him in the process. Sheeran said the Princess swung the sword behind her, and sliced his cheek which saw him make a dash to the emergency room.
Now Blunt is claiming the story was a lie — made up by Sheeran in a ‘desperate’ bid to sell more albums. “Ed was drunk, messing around, and he cut himself. We made a fancy story up; people fell for it. It was very embarrassing,” Blunt revealed. “All of it is a lie . Apart from the actual scar. It’s bizarre that people fell for it. I blame him. He must be desperate, he’s trying to sell records.”
Blunt says he was there when the incident happened and there definitely was no sword involved! “Yeah, but I didn’t do it! He cut himself and I just patched him up. It’s made him look prettier,” he said.
