Today in "Famous People Dating Famous People" news: Courteney Cox is in a relationship with the pianist-guitarist of Snow Patrol because her new BFF Ed Sheeran set them up.


First off, yes, Sheeran is as much a singer-songwriter as he is professional bestie to the stars. Secondly, The Hobbit songwriter has apparently been palling around with the Cougar Town star and decided to play matchmaker, setting her up with his roommate, Johnny McDaid of British soft-rockers Snow Patrol.

Sheeran was going to maintain a vow of silence on the subject, but once the paparazzi snapped a few pics of the couple together, he figured what the hell and told the whole story to the bastion of journalistic integrity that is OMG! Yahoo.

"I wasn't allowed to talk about this, actually, but it's just gone public so...  My housemate [Johnny], who I have lived with for a year, I introduced him to Courteney and they started dating," Sheeran said. "Now they're crazy about each other."

For Sheeran's sake, let's hope this ends better than the last time he set up two famous friends.
