“I’ve been splitting my time between my work and seeing him on tour because he pretty much does a show every night, so if I want to see him, I go along.” Earlier this month, Goulding revealed that although she and Skrillex had recorded a track together, the collaboration would not feature on her new LP ‘Halycon’ – although she did hint they would team up in the future.
It's official: Dougie Poynter is dating Ellie Goulding.After months of speculation, the 26-year-old Mc Fly singer confirmed the news while speaking with Fearne Cotton during last night's ITV2 documentary .After about a year of dating, the British singer, 25, has split from electro music producer Skrillex, two sources confirm to Us Weekly.Back in February, Us Weekly broke news of the musical romance between Goulding -- who sang "Lights" and other hits for Kate Middleton and Prince William at a royal wedding reception in April 2011 -- and the Grammy-winning artist (real name: Sonny Moore), 24."I get girls writing to me saying I've really helped them through stuff, and it makes me feel incredible. And that, to me, I feel is one of my biggest achievements.
So maybe that's the source of why people are so interested in who I am, in fact, with, or dating, whatever." Try as she might to turn the conversation away form talk about her current dating situation, or the past ones that inspired some of the songs on Halycon, Goulding said she was trying to reach a delicate balance when talking about the album.
Goulding has yet to address her boyfriend's comments and has remained tight-lipped when it comes to the couple's romance. "I [used to] put men on a pedestal," Goulding, who previously dated EDM DJ Skrillex, admitted to the publication. I decided to remedy that, and that's why I'm single now. I've got amazing, awesome, stupid friends in the best way possible."The 27-year-old songstress also admitted that she's learned a lot from her past relationships and the heartache that followed."A lot of despair in breaking up with someone is thinking about how you're going to cope in the future," she said.
"But not being completely present prevents you from being happy and alive.
As soon as you stop relying so heavily on what happened in the past, you end up being able to deal."In addition to Skrillex, Goulding has been previously romantically linked to One Direction stud Niall Horan, Radio 1 DJ Greg James as well as Ed Sheeran, who confirmed the pair briefly dated last summer.
What most may NOT know, however, is the rest of Ellie’s dating history.
Although we are very similar, I didn’t see it coming at all, especially after such a sad time breaking up with Greg [James, BBC Radio 1 DJ].
