Ed Sheeran is nailing Courteney Cox?

Ed Sheeran leaving BOA Steakhouse in June

49-year-old Courteney Cox may be getting a little Mrs. Robinson action with Taylor Swift’s awkward-looking BFF, 22-year-old Ed Sheeran. Nice. At least he doesn’t have to worry about getting her pregnant. From the National Enquirer:

The unlikely couple met at an industry event earlier this year, and “Courteney gushed to Ed about what a huge fan she was of his music,” said the source. “Now that Courteney is single, she’s not making any bones about putting the moves on Ed. She offered to let him live at her Malibu home, where he’s been writing songs and chilling out. Courteney is seducing Ed by wining and dining him at the best restaurants in L.A., and she introduces him to friends as ‘my little stud muffin.'”

Despite the coy posting, the source says the two are keeping the relationship quiet because Ed is concerned his teenybopper fans will be turned off by the May-December romance. “But he definitely finds Courteney’s real-life Mrs. Robinson ways irresistible, ” the source added “And Courteney says that being adored by a younger man makes her feel like a million bucks.”

Since 2013 has been a year of odd hookups, this particular pairing doesn’t bother me as much as it could have. Look, Courteney’s career needs an injection of who gives a shit, and Ed needs to break into the American market if he expects to be a legitimate star, so why shouldn’t two friends help each other out? It’s a win/win for all parties involved. What I really love about this situation is that it was already played out on an episode of The Golden Girls 30-years-ago, so I’m pretty sure Courteney’s gonna rehash every detail of this odd coupling to her menopausal  friends over witty banter and cheesecake.
