Ed Sheeran has vowed never to do drugs again after his friend tragic death

Singing sensation Ed Sheeran has vowed never to do drugs again after the death of his best friend, Jamal Edwards.

Music entrepreneur Jamal, who founded the music platform SBTV in 2006 which helped launch Ed’s career, died in February 2022 at the age of 31.

Jamal died of a cardiac arrest following a late night booze and cocaine session, an inquest found last year.

The inquest heard how three small snap bags containing small traces of white powder were found on Jamal after he collapsed.

Back in August, Assistant West London Coroner Ivor Collett ruled that Mr Edwards died after a cardiac arrest brought on by taking cocaine and drinking.

Following the tragic death of Jamal, Galway Girl hit-maker Ed, 32, has vowed to never touch drugs again.

Ed, who recently released an emotional track in tribute to his late friend, said that it would be disrespectful to ever play around with substances again after Jamal tragically lost his life to drugs.

In an incredibly honest confession, Ed told Rolling Stone Magazine that once upon a time, he used to take drugs twice a day – but he has now sworn off them forever after the shock of his best friend’s death.

The chart-topping singer said: “I would never, ever, ever touch anything again, because that’s how Jamal died.

“And that’s just disrespectful to his memory to even, like, go near.”

Discussing his drug use in detail for the first time, Ed confessed that he first started taking them in his mid-20s, and then gradually became hooked on them

Ed explained: “I was always a drinker. I didn’t touch any sort of like, drug, until I was 24.

“I remember just being at a festival and being like, ‘Well, if all of my friends do it, it can’t be that bad.’ And then sort of dabbling. And then it just turns into a habit that you do once a week and then once a day and then, like, twice a day and then, like, without booze.“

Ed went on to say that doing drugs just ‘became bad vibes’ for him eventually.

The singing sensation also recently confessed that he ‘didn’t want to live anymore’ after Jamal’s death, and after his wife Cherry was diagnosed with a tumour while she was pregnant with their second child.

Earlier this year, Ed delivered an emotional tribute to the late SBTV founder Jamal in a beautiful track which was released online.

Wearing a blue jumper and jeans, the music icon begins to rap: “Yo Jam, this is a letter to you, it’s been a while but it’s been hard for me to get in the booth.

“Since we last spoke I’ve become a father of two trying to live life with a smile but that’s been harder to do. Because all I want to do is talk about you, but these tears won’t let me talk about you. We should have known that we’d be lost without you.“
