Ed Sheeran Opens Up About Grief And Going To Therapy Following Friend Jamal Edwards’ Death
Ed Sheeran is opening up about experiencing grief. In a preview for his upcoming appearance on “The Jonathan Ross Show,” which was obtained by The Daily Mail, the singer talked about feeling alone after the death of his close friend Jamal Edwards. Jamal was a music producer who died from cardiac arrest in 2022 at the age of 31. “I felt after Jamal’s death everyone rallies around people and then after a week it kind of goes and you’re meant to get back to normal life,” he said. “Grief is something you live with… it has to be something you embrace in a way.” The “Shape of You” singer has been candid about how his friend’s death impacted him, and he told Jonathan that he sought out therapy following a number of hardships in his life last year including Jamal’s death and his wife Cherry Seaborn’s health scare.
