Ed Sheeran threatens to quit music if he loses copyright trial

During his testimony in a federal court in Manhattan on Monday, Sheeran stated he would quit his music career if a jury finds him liable for plagiarising Marvin Gaye's 1973 soul classic Let's Get It On with his hit single Thinking Out Loud. As reported by the Daily Mail, the 32-year-old stated:, "If that happens, I'm done, I'm stopping." The singer-songwriter expressed his frustration over the accusations and the potential impact on his career, saying: "I find it really insulting to devote my whole life to being a performer and a songwriter and have someone diminish it.".
