Ed Sheeran 'GoT' Trolls Win ... Deletes Twitter Account

7/18/2017 7:44 AM PDT

9:15 AM PT -- Ed reactivated his account. Looks like he's starting fresh by deleting tweets all the way back to April 3, 2015 and only with about 8k followers.Ed Sheeran got beat like Ramsay Bolton in the Battle of the Bastards -- enough "Game of Thrones" fans lit him up for his singing cameo that he's bowed out of the Twittersphere.

Ed deleted his 19.6 million-strong account Monday night after haters bombarded him with criticism for the very brief scene -- which many thought was too real for the fantasy world of 'GoT.'

Ed did say he'd be quitting Twitter about a month ago, but the timing is still a little suspect. His other social media pages are intact.

Important note for the haters ... his performance couldn't have been that bad since Sunday's season 7 premiere broke HBO's viewership record ... up 27% from last year's premiere.

Ed Sheeran 'GoT' Cameo Gets Mixed Reviews Mostly For Randomness

7/17/2017 7:46 AM PDT

Ed Sheeran didn't stray far from his lane for his "Game of Thrones" debut, but not everyone is convinced he deserves two thumbs up for the performance.

Sheeran's brief appearance on the show is now one of the most talked about things about Sunday night's season 7 premiere. The reviews are mixed ... which is weird since he had a trivial role and stuck mostly to singing ... by a campfire, while eating rabbit.

Word of Sheeran's cameo role came out back in March -- and the show's had a bunch of other musicians on it like Coldplay's Will Champion and Snow Patrol's Gary Lightbody. So, maybe expectations were just too high.

Something tells us Ed would've had a chart topper in Westeros.

'Game Of Thrones' Star Uses NY Jets to Save His Role ... Allegedly

7/16/2017 12:15 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Here's "Game of Thrones" star Alfie Allen -- aka Theon Greyjoy -- rockin' a NY Jets hat in L.A. this week. 

When pressed about his favorite player on the Jets, Allen didn't know a damn thing about the NFL team and instead jokingly named soccer legend Thierry Henry

There's only one explanation -- George R.R. Martin, the mad genius behind 'GOT.'

Martin's a huuuuge NY Jets fan -- die-hard -- and often blogs about how his team drives him absolutely crazy. 

So, here's the theory: Allen's going Green to kiss Martin's ass so he won't kill off his character ... because as EVERYONE knows -- no one is safe on that show. 

Will the hat work? New season starts Sunday, so we'll find out soon enough ... 

Joe Jonas & Sophie Turner Little Red Corvette

EXCLUSIVE

Joe Jonas made Prince proud on Saturday ... and probably his girlfriend, Sophie Turner, too.

The couple was spotted cruising around Malibu in Joe's little red vintage Corvette ... this after hiking together in L.A. earlier the same day.

Eyewitnesses tell us Joe stopped off for gas at PCH and Cross Creek, and got some girls at the gas station to lose their minds once they realized who he was.

We're told Joe kept his cool -- he's used to that kind of reaction by now. And after that ... vroom vroom. 

Joe Jonas & Sophie Turner She Puts a Spring In My Step

5/9/2017 7:42 AM PDT

Joe Jonas and "Game of Thrones" star Sophie Turner are so that couple ... y'know the type ... so freakin' happy they're floating on air.

They were skipping through the streets of downtown Manhattan Monday looking like they were having the time of their lives together ... and making everyone around them feel like their lives are crap. 

The couple hooked up last fall, and it's clearly serious since Sophie's wearing Joe's "Overthrow" hoodie.

Sorry, 'GOT' fans ... the gear is NOT a subtle hint for season 7, it's just Joe's boxing gym.

Joe Jonas & Sophie Turner Plenty of Satisfaction ...

4/14/2017 6:56 AM PDT

Joe Jonas is all good to the power of 2!

Joe and gf Sophie Turner were strolling through the SoHo district Thursday in NYC and it's pretty damn clear Joe's delivering the goods. Actually ... more like good, good, and Sophie seems plenty satisfied.

If her smiling face doesn't say it all then just take a closer look ... it's literally written all over her left hand and in plain view -- "Joe Gives Me Da Good Good."

Good work, Joe ... and get it, Sophie!

Lena Headey Making Over $1 Mil Per 'GoT' Episode ... Ex-Husband Claims

12/14/2016 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Lena Headey got a HUGE pay raise on "Game of Thrones" and is now making more than $1 million PER EPISODE ... so claims her ex-husband, who's got plans for that extra dough.

Peter Loughran just filed new docs asking the court to make Lena pay his legal fees in their nasty custody battle -- to the tune of $40k. He says it's only fair, since he's jobless and Lena's sleeping on a bed of 'GoT' cash.

It's interesting ... there were reports Lena was set to make upwards of $500k per episode for season 7, but Peter obviously thinks she's making more than double that already.

The judge hasn't ruled on his request for Lena to pay.

Lena Headey Ultimate Doctor's Note We Need You in Europe for 'Game of Thrones'

11/18/2016 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Lena Headey has pulled out the big guns in her custody war -- passing a letter to the judge from the "Game of Thrones" Executive Producer demanding her presence on the set.

Lena and ex-hubby Peter Loughran are in a 'GoT' war over custody of 6-year-old Wylie. Lena is begging the judge to modify the current custody order and allow her to keep the boy in the UK, where she films the show. Peter is dead set against it, claiming it would deny him access to his son.

The current order allows Lena to take the boy to the UK only when she films, and Peter says she should be done shooting and wants Wylie back. So Lena has now brought in the ultimate doctor's note from EP Bernadette Caulfield, who says she must stay in the UK for "possible addition scenes and pick-ups" through February 2017.

It's interesting ... the letter does not say her services are definitely necessary but, as you know, winter is coming, so she has to be on call.

Lena wants to move to the UK permanently, because her family is there and she thinks the schools are better. She also says she's paying Peter $10k a month in child support and he hasn't even seen the child in the last 3 months.

The judge has yet to rule.
