ED SHEERAN has laughed off rumours he's
pulled out of his North American tour dates to check into rehab.
The A Team hitmaker announced this week that he will no longer be
supporting rockers Snow Patrol on their current trek across the U.S. and Canada
as he's had to return to England
for "personal reasons".
His sudden cancellation has reportedly prompted U.K. tabloid
editors to suggest that some sort of substance abuse treatment is to blame for
the scrapped shows, but the star insists the claims are not true - he's tending
to a family matter instead.
In a Twitter.com post on Tuesday, he writes, "Apparently media are
running a story tomorrow about how im coming home early to enter rehab, im
missing 4 days of a tour to see my family...
"But yeah, no rehab just yet, but i am going to legoland in a few
weeks, so might need it after that".
