The two musicians, both from the UK, were spotted in the audience at Brooklyn's Barclays Center on Sunday (Aug. 25) sitting next to one another and holding hands. The Twittersphere was quickly abuzz with talk of a potential new music super couple.

In fact, the talk picked up steam so quickly that Goulding felt compelled to speak out and squash any rumors. The songstress tweeted: "I love that holding hands with my friends means we're an item. In that case I am in many relationships. Lover not a hater. #whatthef***."

In recent weeks, Goulding was also rumored to be romantically involved with One Direction's Niall Horan, while Sheeran's friendship with Taylor Swift once led to rampant rumors about a coupling there as well.

Do you think Goulding and Sheeran are simply friends?
