Ed Sheeran's manager, Stuart Camp, has finally spoken out a long-rumored incident involving his client, Princess Beatrice, and a decorative sword.
During a recent appearance on the podcast Straight Up, Camp noted that "we've never publicly commented on" the story—in which Beatrice supposedly slashed Sheeran's cheek at party at the Royal Lodge in Windsor, back in 2016—before addressing it.
Camp said that, in the aftermath, "Certain people said, 'Oh, you should lie and say it wasn't her and say it was someone else.'" Instead, Camp said he found a compromise. "I said, 'well, we're not telling anyone anything. I'm not lying, just because someone's a fucking idiot and they've been waving a sword around when you're all drunk. It's not safe!
"'I know, we'll get paralytic and take a sword off the wall and wave it around the room,'" he added sarcastically. "When you hang out with those sort of circles you're just asking for trouble aren't you!"
Back in 2017, the Sun reported that Beatrice had injured Sheeran badly enough to need stitches, after accidentally cutting him while pretending to knight James Blunt. Blunt later told the press that the pair "made a fancy story up," but Sheeran implied that the story was true, saying "I can’t talk about it. I don’t know what will happen if I do!" on the Graham Norton Show.
Camp, it seems, may soon find out what happens when you talk about it.
