He says he has made a decision to stay away from Twitter because the comments posted on it ruins his day and he can't work out why people dislike him so much. "I have people like my dad who will have a conversation with me", he said.

The former Framlingham schoolboy now limits Tweets to tour dates and automatic updates via Instagram.

He told The Sun: 'I've actually come off Twitter completely. Twitter's a platform for that. "I can't read it", he admitted. "That's why I've come off it". But Ed Sheeran states the comments are completely unjustified.

"Superyachts and hotels and hanging out with famous people are not the trappings of fame, for me, it's falling out with family members and friends over money".

The "Castle on the Hill" singer played a sensational set as the Sunday headliner at Glastonbury last month, but despite his popularity he has still received an influx of hateful abuse on Twitter.

Ed Sheeran, the mysteriously omnipresent pop phenomenon, has had it with people being mean to him on Twitter.

Meanwhile, prior to the Glastonbury Festival, Sheeran had shared his qualms on Annie Mac's BBC Radio 1 evening show, where the singer thought he was the odd one out compared to the other headlining acts, Radiohead and Foo Fighters.

Ed's decision to leave the social media site comes just days after he was forced to defend his headline spot at this year's Glastonbury, after he was accused by some people of not playing his guitar live.
