A man in Manchester named Ty Jones is a full-time Sheeran lookalike, and he looks so much like Ed that he often mistakes him for Ed a lot. he said,“I’ve had crazy numbers of fans follow me all over to the point where the team I was working with have had to help him make a dramatic escape plan."
He’s seen fans “crying and shaking” in front of him, and one even “crashed their bike while still making eye contact.”
Things can get so crazy at times that even he has to keep “a low profile” and often goes “in disguise” in sunglasses, a hat and a face mask when running errands.
On the plus side, he does get “free stuff” from brands, and gets VIP treatment at clubs and restaurants.
As for Ed, Ty has met him and they plan to meet again via Zoom later this month.
A Brooklyn jury deliberated for nine hours before finding R. Kelly guilty of all nine counts he was facing in his sex trafficking case. In addition to trafficking, the charges included racketeering, bribery, coercion, and enticement. He’s facing 10 years to life in prison when he’s sentenced on May 4th of next year.
His attorneys said they're "extraordinarily disappointed" in the verdict, and will continue to, quote, "fight on R. Kelly's behalf.”
This was just the New York case, by the way. He's still facing charges in both Chicago and Minnesota.
