British singer and songwriter Ed Sheeran spoke about his suffering from social phobia, following the widespread popularity he has enjoyed in recent years.
Ed Sheeran pointed to the reverse effect that stardom has caused to his life, asserting that it made him isolate from his real world and avoid going out, limiting his knowledge to as few as possible, according to Mirror.
"I know this is ridiculous because I used to sing in theaters to thousands of audiences," said Sheeran, who recently finished fifth on the Forbes list of the world's top income earners.“ I do not have a problem dealing with others, but when someone is filming or staring at me for a long time, I feel panic and discomfort”, he said.
Sheeran, who for the first time revealed his suffering from social phobia, said that when one of his fans goes to photograph him while eating outside with his family or friends he feels upset, calling it inhumane.
The Grammy Award-winning Ed Sheeran was able to achieve wide-ranging stars after the release of his album "Divide" in 2017, which has sold more than 150 million copies worldwide.
