Ed Sheeran’s manager called Britain’s Princess Beatrice a “f—ing idiot” in a new interview for allegedly slicing the singer’s face open with a sword during a drunken party — and revealed that people tried to convince him to cover the incident up.
“I got quite protective over that, we’ve never publicly commented on it,” said Stuart Camp, who has managed the ginger-haired warbler since 2011, on the podcast “Straight Up.”
“Certain people said, ‘Oh, you should lie and say it wasn’t her and say it was someone else.’ I said, ‘Well, we’re not telling anyone anything. I’m not lying, just because someone’s a f—king idiot and they’ve been waving a sword around when you’re all drunk. It’s not safe!’”
He humorously added, “I know, we’ll get paralytic and take a sword off the wall and wave it around the room. When you hang out with those sort of circles you’re just asking for trouble aren’t you!”
The incident reportedly occurred at a 2016 party at the Royal Lodge, where Beatrice’s divorced parents Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson reside.
The young royal, 32, who recently married, reportedly pretended to knight singer James Blunt with a sword but didn’t realize that Sheeran, 29, was standing close behind her when she raised the sword.
The blade is said to have sliced the “Shape of You” singer’s cheek, a few inches below his right eye.
Sheeran seemingly confirmed the bizarre tale on “The Graham Norton Show” in 2017 when he said, “I can’t talk about it. I don’t know what will happen if I do!”
Since it’s happened, Camp revealed that he hasn’t “heard hide nor hair” from the sword-swinging royal.
