Lewis Capaldi is apparently having a terrible time with a house he bought at Ed Sheeran’s suggestion.
The Someone You Loved singer reportedly spent £1.6million on a converted farmhouse on the outskirts of Glasgow in 2020 amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
When appearing on The Zane Lowe Show Speaking on Apple Music on Monday (December 5), Capaldi branded the investment a “money pit.”
The singer explained that he and Sheeran had become “pretty close” over the course of the lockdown, and Sheeran eventually sent him the link to a home for sale that Capaldi viewed and bought.
“I may not have looked around [the house] enough,” admitted Capaldi. “I didn’t smell it.”
“Did you buy the wrong house because Ed Sheeran told you to buy it and you were a little excited?” Lowe asked.
“Yes, I was very excited,” Capaldi admitted. “And I’m here to tell you, the house is a f***ing s***hole. It’s a money pit and has been the bane of my existence for the past few months.”
Sheeran previously offered to buy the property from Capaldi “if it makes him feel better.”
“I just want to say that I didn’t just send him a house, I sent him a bunch and he went to check them out,” Sheeran told the US radio program Elvis Duran and the Morning Show.
“I don’t think it’s that great. He said he found a grocery bag with live frogs in it,” Sheeran added.
Capaldi’s second studio album Broken by a desire to be heaven sent is scheduled for release on May 19, 2023.
