The Wanted singer Tom Parker lost his battle to cancer in March, but in his upcoming memoir titled “Hope: My Inspirational Life,” it is revealed the Ed Sheeran selflessly helped pay for Tom's private medical treatment during his grueling battle with brain cancer. Tom says in the memoir that Ed's kind gesture meant the world to him and his wife Kelsey. An extract from the book reads,
“I’ve never publicly said this before (and he’ll probably be mad that I’m doing it now) but Ed is a very special man — he even helped out with my medical bills when I was seeking other treatment options and having private immunotherapy. He didn’t need to do any of that, but my wife Kelsey and I are so grateful to him for his support, it meant the world.”
Ed and Tom became friends when Ed joined The Wanted on tour over a decade ago. Tom's book “Hope: My Inspirational Life” is out in July.
