But, things took a turn in November 2017, when Ed was accused of sexual assault by not one but two women. Although those accusations were not proved, Ed came under fire during that incident.
Even when such a turmoil fell upon Ed, Jessica stayed by his side. However, the togetherness did not last forever as the couple mutually parted ways in September 2018.
Apart from his link-ups with beautiful women, Ed has also been the victim of gay allegations because of his close friendship with Chace Crawford. The Gossip Girl co-stars were also roommates during the filming of the series. However, Ed's history of relationships proves such gay rumors as baseless.
As of now; Ed is keeping his private affairs under wraps. Having said that, he was spotted with a female companion on 10 January 2019.
