Ed Sheeran indulges in £750 bottle of fine red wine as he treats Lionel Richie to post-gig dinner at Michelin-star restaurant in Cardiff
He bonded with Russell Crowe 'over their love of getting drunk', meeting up with the Hollywood actor earlier this month.
And Ed Sheeran's love for fine wine continued as he enjoyed £750 bottles of red vino with Lionel Richie after their post-gig dinner date in Cardiff on Friday.
The singer, 27, treated the 69-year-old music legend to a Michelin star meal at the Park House restaurant, with staff closing off the restaurant after he played at his second sold-out concert at the nearby Principality Stadium.

While Lionel enjoyed locally-sourced Brecon lamb, Ed chose not to eat and simply 'relaxed' with a few glasses of 1997 Penfold Grange vino - which he'd seen on the menu before booking a table - until the early hours.
Taking to Instagram, Ed shared a snap with Lionel as they posed on the stairs of the restaurant with the £750 bottle of the fine wine.
He captioned the snap: 'Lovely dinner last night with this fine chap.'

The pair had the full run of the oak-panelled 19th-century mansion's dining room and wine bar as the owners 'closed it off' to the public.
A spokeswoman for Park House told WalesOnline: 'Ed obviously knows his wine.
''They were both so down to earth and relaxed, they didn't have a demanding list of things they wanted.
'Ed didn't eat, he must have been so pumped with adrenaline, but he must have looked at the wine menu before he came because he knew exactly what he wanted.'
Close friends: 'The Shape of You hitmaker has previously touched upon enjoying fine wine with his a-list pals, with Ed say he bonded with Russell Crowe because they both 'loved getting drunk'
The Shape of You hitmaker, who is in the midst of a 46-date stadium tour, has previously touched upon enjoying fine wine with his a-list pals.
Back in February 2017, Ed revealed he bonded with Russell Crowe because they both 'loved getting drunk'.
'I've started hanging out with Russell Crowe because he loves getting drunk and I love getting drunk,' he told Nova's Kent 'Smallzy' Small.
Lionel and Ed's dinner comes after the Hello hitmaker revealed at the Ivor Novello Awards in London last month, he asked the 'Lego House' singer to go in the studio with him and record a track after they hit it off at the awards ceremony - and that they were going to make it happen around their tours.
Talking about himself in the third person, Lionel said 'The next big project for Lionel is - I shouldn't say too much - but it involves Ed Sheeran.
'I was a little dumbstruck meeting him tonight. There's Ed over there and he's looking at me and I'm looking at Ed. It's a mutual admiration society. The first thing you say is, 'Do you think you might want to . . . ?' And the answer was, 'Of course.' He's on tour and I'm on tour but it will happen.'
