Los Angeles - Ellie Goulding admits she went on "a few" dates with Niall Horan.
The 28-year-old singer - who is now dating McBusted bassist Dougie Poynter - has confirmed with Britain's Elle magazine she once romanced the One Direction hunk, but laughed off speculation their relationship was the subject of Ed Sheeran's song Don't.
The song is said to be about a friend of his dating one of his girlfriends, but Ellie insists she has never been involved with the 24-year-old star.
Ellie said: "I did go on a few dates with Niall but I was never in a relationship with Ed. I have absolutely no idea where that came from and why it was turned into such a big thing.
"I find it so frustrating that female musicians are constantly defined by the men they have or haven't dated."

The Love Me Like You Do hitmaker is smitten with Dougie and believes they will be together forever.
She told Elle: "He is definitely the one forever. He's been through a lot, and he has a quiet depth that I love.
"When I was a teenager, I fancied him but I thought he was so out of my league. Way too good-looking for me. Calvin Harris has offered to play at our wedding. Not that we've organised one. But the offer's been made."
The 28-year-old could however be hearing wedding bells sooner rather than later.
Although nothing has been confirmed, Ellie took to her Instagram account on Tuesday to share a new "responsibility", which happened to be a beautiful ring... on her ring finger... on her left hand!
