Pet rock-lobster to-the-stars Ed Sheeran got so hammered at a Thanksgiving bash at Courteney Cox’s house that he passed out by her pool.
The 22-year-old pop poppet had been drinking all day and decided to take a time out:
“I ended up spending a lot of time living in her beach house and therefore bumping into all these random people,” he told omg! UK. ”We spent Thanksgiving Eve at Jennifer’s before spending the day at Courteney’s.”
”I passed out… she has this crazy house with a big staircase that goes down to the pool,” he explained.
“I had drunk a bit too much and needed a time out, so I went down and laid on one of the beds outside by the pool and passed out there.”
I wonder if he woke up in the Malibu sun the next day only to find out that some wag had written ‘TW@T’ on his back in factor 50 sunscreen?
Anyway, Ed’s taking the credit for fixing Courteney up with a Christmas bonus in the shape of Snow Patrol’s Johnny McDaid - who is her new sh@g partner:
”I wasn’t allowed to talk about this, actually, but it’s just gone public so…My housemate [Johnny], who I have lived with for a year, I introduced him to Courteney and they started dating – now they’re crazy about each other,” he said.
Ed might well have fixed them up in the first place, but I’m guessing that Courteney’s world-famous (well, with the male cast of Cougar Town at least) tongue party trick was what kept them together.
