Ed Sheeran 'didn't want to live anymore' after deaths of Jamal Edwards and Shane Warne

Ed Sheeran, 32, has detailed how he felt like he was "drowning" after SBTV's Jamal Edwards, who is the son of Loose Women's Brenda Edwards, died in February 2022 aged 31. Then, to add to his heartache, his friend Shane Warne died just one month later.

In a raw interview with Rolling Stone, the singer explained that he felt "embarrassed" and "selfish" for feeling like he "didn't want to live anymore".

Opening up about his depression, Ed said: "My best friend died. And he shouldn't have done.

"I've always had real lows in my life. But it wasn't really till last year that I actually addressed it.

"I felt like I didn't want to live anymore. And I have had that throughout my life... You're under the waves drowning. You're just sort of in this thing. And you can't get out of it."

Ed believed his feelings were "selfish" as he felt he needed to prioritise being a "father", leading him to feel "embarrassed about it all".

When his wife Cherry Seaborn noticed something was wrong, she encouraged Ed to seek help and he started seeing a therapist.

He explained: "No one really talks about their feelings where I come from. People think it's weird getting a therapist in England... I think it's very helpful to be able to speak with someone and just vent and not feel guilty about venting.
