Ed Sheeran Reveals He Took A Year Off Because Of Substance Abuse Issues

The singer has opened up about 'slipping into' substance abuse.

Remember when Ed Sheeran took a break from music a while back? The singer has now come clean about the reason he decided to take a year off.

In a recent interview on the Jonathan Ross Show, Ed Sheeran opened up about his struggles with substance abuse.

He connected his issues to his sudden rise in the music industry and his perpetually nomadic lifestyle.

“I think you need to, when you get into the industry, adjust to it – and I didn’t adjust because I was constantly working on tour. And all the pitfalls that people read about, I just found myself slipping into all of them. Mostly, like, substance abuse,” he admitted on The Jonathan Ross Show.
