Sheeran was spotted a few months ago sporting a small scar on his cheek. Last November, The Sun reported Beatrice, Prince William and Prince Harry's cousin, had pretended to "knight" Blunt by tapping him lightly with a sword but swung it back accidentally and cut Sheeran's face.
"Ed was drunk, messing around, and he cut himself," Blunt told the U.K. men's lifestyle magazine ShortList, in comments published Thursday. "We made a fancy story up, people fell for it. It was very embarrassing."
