Ed Sheeran and Ellie Goulding got cozy at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday. 

Taylor Swift's best friend may be dating the "Burn" singer after the two entertainers held hands at the awards show. The sighting comes after several romance rumors have paired One Direction's Niall Horan with Goulding. 

According to US Weekly, the "Anything Could Happen" singer, 26 and "Everything has Changed" crooner, 22, sat next to each other at the Brooklyn Barclays Center mega-music event. They looked very happy together.

At one point, the twosome not only held hands, but Sheeran even had his hand on Goulding's knee, reported US

But the blonde songstress was quick to dismiss the rampant romance speculation. She tweeted about her dissatisfaction with people assuming that holding someone's hand equals dating or romance.

In recent weeks, Goulding had been linked to Horan. The singer, who dated producer ex-boyfriend DJ Skillrex, is actually dating actor Jeremy Irvine, a source told US.

Goulding is apparently not interested in Sheeran or Horan, the source added.

The country crooner had been romantically linked to Swift in recent weeks though several sources said the two are just close friends and collaborators.
