In the first glimpse of a new sad documentary, Ed Sheeran sobs as he discusses his wife Cherry Seaborn’s health concerns and the passing of his best friend Jamal Edwards:
In a video for a new four-part documentary on Disney+ that was just released today, Ed Sheeran sobbed as he talked about his wife Cherry Seaborn’s precarious health and the unexpected death of his best buddy Jamal Edwards.
Ed recently admitted that he had “spiralled” into melancholy after his wife was given a tumour diagnosis while pregnant last year, postponing the start of her treatment, and his first mentor, Jamal Edwards, passed away in February 2022 from a heart attack.
The singer-songwriter from Suffolk is shown crying in today’s clip as he struggles with his friend’s passing and his wife Cherry’s health issues as she gets ready to give birth to their second kid, Jupiter, who will be born in May 2022.
He then appears in a videotape of himself sobbing on stage, and Cherry comments, “I’ve never seen him sob on stage,” adding, “He hasn’t had the time to process and be at peace with his ideas.”
“You guys said, “Do you want to make a documentary?”” Ed then asks the camera. , “Yes, it’ll be me in the studio, and we’ll do a gig,” I responded. Nevertheless, he continued, “That’s not what the documentary is” in light of the pain of the previous 12 months.
In six weeks, a four-part series will be released that will trace Sheeran’s rise to fame.
After speaking about his youth and stuttering while growing up, Ed says in the teaser, “That kid doesn’t grow up to be a pop sensation. It’s so improbable.
Videos of Ed from his early years are intercut with scenes from his sold-out arena performances.
