After sharing his diagnosis with the world, Tom said that Ed quickly got in touch, writing, “Pretty much from the moment I was diagnosed, Ed Sheeran reached out to me with an offer to do anything he could to help.”
Tom explained that he’d known Ed for over a decade after the “Bad Habits” singer “joined The Wanted on our tour bus during a promotion trip in America.”
He added, “We’ve always run into each other over the years and had a great relationship.”
Following Tom’s death, Ed posted a poignant Instagram tribute to the fellow singer on March 30.
“So sad to hear of Tom’s passing,” he wrote. “Thoughts and love are with Kelsey, his children and his family. Very sad day, what a lovely guy x.”
