Ed Sheeran has blasted rumors that he and Miley Cyrus are feuding, saying that he’s ‘never met her’.
The rumors started at Sunday night’s MTV VMAs, after Sheeran did not greet Cyrus as he walked up to receive his Best Male Video award. Cyrus was reported to have called him an ‘a**hole’ for snubbing her.
But on Wednesday’s On Air with Ryan Seacrest, the singer dismissed the rumors, saying that he does not understand why people expected him to give Cyrus a high-five.
‘Well, I don’t know why people were expecting that,’ he said. ‘I’ve never met her. There was a high-five between me and Scooter [Braun] because I know him, and that was the only high-five. I don’t know what people were expecting.’
He also said he has no ill feelings against Cyrus, saying that he is even willing to do a music collaboration with her.
