Ed Sheeran ‘will pay the wages of workers at his London restaurant during closure and tells them they can seek other employment too’ amid coronavirus crisis

Ed Sheeran is making sure staff at his recently opened London restaurant will not have to worry about pay during the coronavirus crisis.

Sources say the chart-topper singer, worth close to £200m, has told his employees at Notting Hill restaurant Bertie Blossoms that he will pay their wages in full after the eatery was forced to closed as part of nationwide government orders.

Ed has even reportedly urged his staff to seek other employment or volunteer opportunities while the restaurant remains closed.

Bertie Blossoms is believed to be named after the 28-year-old’s wife Cherrie Seaborn and opened in November 2019. 

The Sun report that Ed has moved to underwrite salaries for 10 staff at the restaurant, which has been frequented by the likes of Peter Crouch and his wife Abbey Clancy. 

A source said: ‘Ed’s told everyone not to worry and that he’s picking up the tab and he’ll see them all again for a massive p*ss-up once the world gets back to normal.

‘Ed even told staff they could go out and seek other employment if they wanted or go help the nation by doing voluntary work.’

The insider added that employees are grateful to Ed for putting ‘everyone’s mind at rest’. A representative for the singer has been contacted by MailOnline for comment. 

All restaurants, bars, cafes and clubs were ordered to close their doors last week as part of the government’s plan to curb the rise of coronavirus cases. 

In January Ed was granted permission to turn his upmarket Notting Hill restaurant into a pub despite neighbours having previously complained about noisy punters.

Sheeran asked the local council if he could serve alcohol at his new restaurant to customers even if they aren’t eating despite neighbours’ fears over noise. 

It was revealed in February that Ed has splashed £10million on the London property market, growing his empire to 27 flats, houses, and mansions worth £57million.  

Outside of London, the musician owns a vast £3.7million Suffolk country estate dubbed ‘Sheeranville’ by local villagers.

After moving into a Grade II-listed farmhouse in his hometown of Framlington in 2012, Sheeran bought another four homes.

He has had a pub, a swimming pool, and a treehouse built, and last November submitted proposals to have a ‘place of worship’ constructed.
