Ed Sheeran has revealed he’s got a bizarre way of keeping his friendship with Friends star Courteney Cox alive, after he bought her an S&M mask.
Can’t say he’s not generous!
The Bad Habits hitmaker, who has been staying with Courteney while in LA, explained on the Late Late Show that the Friends star has a bit of an obsession with her Amazon Alexa.
‘Isn’t this wonderful? This is my Alexa, I can order whatever I want on this,’ Ed recalled her saying.
‘So she walks out the room and – do you know what a gimp mask is?’ the 30-year-old added. ‘You know like an S&M leather gimp mask?
‘So she walks out the room and I go “Alexa, order me a gimp mask.” And it goes, “Okay Courteney, I’ll order you…” Anyway, so unbeknownst to me, Courteney’s assistant found it.
‘She opened the post and finds this mask and instantly goes, “Oh! I don’t think I was meant to see that.” And leaves it Courteney’s bed and Courteney was like, “Where did this come from?”‘
‘Anyway, she found out the story and now every time I go back there, I order her another gimp mask and she has maybe 12. I hide them in people’s bedrooms.’
The actress went on to send Ed a clip of herself donning the mask on set during the pandemic – and it’s quite something.
Ed and Courteney have been pals ever since they met in 2013.
In fact, the singer introduced Courteney to her boyfriend, Snow Patrol’s Johnny McDaid.
He told The Hits Radio: ‘I introduced her to my best mate Johnny, who I wrote Shape of You and Bad Habits with.
‘He’s also godfather to [Ed’s daughter] Lyra, but yeah I introduced them like nine years ago.
‘She just invited me round her house and I just kept going round and then one day I brought Johnny and he didn’t come home.’
Meanwhile, despite Ed’s antics, he and Courteney have remained close with the stars most recently teasing that they could be teaming up for some new music.
