Ed Sheeran denies completing his 14-day quarantine in Australia with actress Julia Roberts on a $ 6,000 a night estate
Ed Sheeran has declined quarantine with Julia Roberts after reports that the unlikely couple joined forces to ‘save money’ on their mandatory 14-day isolation in Australia.
The Sydney Morning Herald reported Sunday that Ed, 30, his wife Cherry Seaborn and their seven-month-old daughter were isolated with Julia, 53, and two friends at the $ 6,000 a night Sweven Estate on the Hawkesbury River.
But shortly after the claims were made, an Ed spokesperson told Daily Mail Australia that the story was simply ‘not true’.

The Herald had quoted sources claiming that a group of six rented the property from March 6 to March 20 – but Ed’s representative insists he didn’t live under the same roof as Julia.
The incredible 141 acre estate features five bedrooms, an infinity pool, a self-contained cottage and unparalleled views of the Hawkesbury region.
Julia is currently preparing in Sydney to film the political thriller Gaslit with Sean Penn.
Ed was in the country to perform at the state funeral of the late music promoter Michael Gudinski in Melbourne.
The two men had been friends for years, and Gudinski’s Frontier Touring company had hosted Ed’s record-breaking Australasian tour in 2018.

The British star sang his hit single Castle On The Hill – one of Gudinski’s favorites – and later broke down when he performed a new song, Visiting Hours, which is about his daughter Lyra.
Ed was visibly emotional and had to stop singing at some point before saying ‘sorry’ and returning to the microphone.
He said to the audience beforehand: ‘I never get that nervous, I’m really damn nervous. So apologies if I screw up the text or something. ‘

Ed explained that he had written the song during his mandatory quarantine.
He said, ‘I know it’s hard to get into this country and I don’t take it for granted for all the hard work getting me here and I really appreciated the opportunity to come here.
‘In lockdown I could have a guitar for quarantine. I always think the best way to process things is to write songs, be it good news, bad news and here’s a song I finished last week. ‘
The day after the memorial, Ed and Michael’s son Matt – who has followed in his father’s footsteps and is now the executive director of Mushroom Group – got matching tattoos in honor of the late Australian music icon.
They were both given a simple hand design that marked the ‘No. 1 ‘mark, which was one of Gudinski’s signature poses in photos.
