Fifty Shades of Grey singer Ellie Goulding is understood to have splashed out on a £6million property in London as she prepares to invite her Judo champion boyfriend Bobby Rich to move in with her.
The singer only started a relationship with the sportsman two months ago, but sources close to the star say she is already smitten and considering asking him to move in with her. Ellie, 30, who sang tracks for the soundtrack of the successful movie franchise, is said to have just moved into a new six-bedroom home in London.
According to friends, Bobby has already met Ellie’s mum and is spending more time at his girlfriend’s new home that at his own. The friend added that while they had not moved in together officially, it was a step which was not too far off. They added: “They think the world of each other and are very loved-up. Ellie’s mum Tracey also really liked him, which is very important to her.”
Ellie’s new home in South London has six bedrooms and an indoor swimming pool, as well as an outside jacuzzi. She had only just moved into a new London home last February, which cost her £3.2million, but seems to have decided on an upgrade.
She and Bobby were first linked to each other in November last year. The pair share a shared love of fitness training. Ellie had previously been in a relationship with Dougie Poynter, from McFly. But, while they have remained close friends, they split up in February last year after a relationship which was on-off for some time. Bobby is a close family friend of the Beckhams and was spotted out and about with Victoria Beckham last year, at the private members’ club Little House. Given that the Beckhams have also just purchased a new house in London, perhaps Ellie will be invited into their circle too.
