Taylor Swift nearly 'impaled' by Ed Sheeran's sword
Taylor Swift reportedly came close to being 'impaled' mid-air on a sword used in hit movie Lord Of The Rings, which is in the possession of Swift's rumoured boyfriend Ed Sheeran.

Sheeran was presented with the piece of film memorabilia by Lord Of The Rings director Peter Jackson during a visit to New Zealand. According to Sheeran, he was showing his sword to Swift on a private jet when the plane took off and led to the weapon slipping off a table and toward the hit US popstar. Speaking to MTV News, Sheeran said: "It's like a real sword. I got it shipped over, shipped over to Omaha, so I was bringing it back to Nashville and I think [Taylor] and her crew were weirded out by it anyway. They were just like, 'Why does Ed have a sword?'"

Adding: "As the plane started to take off, it was on the table and it went like this," Sheeran continued, making a gesture to indicate the airplane taking off. "The plane is kind of taking off and [the sword] started sliding down and I was like, 'No!' It was just about to impale Taylor."

Meanwhile, Ed Sheeran recently spoke out to explain why he was unable to perform as part of the series of Teenage Cancer Trust gigs curated by Noel Gallagher at London's Royal Albert Hall in March. The former Oasis guitarist had moaned about Sheeran saying he would take part before "wriggling out" of his verbal commitment.

Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran are close musical friends and worked together on her hugely successful 2012 album 'Red'.
