Ed Sheeran keeps ordering rude things for Courteney Cox off her Alexa

Did you know that Ed Sheeran and Courteney Cox were besties? Supposedly they met through mutual friends and it was Ed who introduced Courteney to Johnny McDaid from Snow Patrol back in 2013. I totally missed the memo. Ed gets to stay at Courteney’s Malibu pad whenever he is in town. And theirs is a friendship built on pranks. Ed is in residency this week at The Late Late Show with James Corden. Ed says that Courteney gives him full access to her home which he takes advantage of. Particularly ordering her NSFW gag gifts via Alexa. Ed says that every time he goes to Courteney’s he orders Courteney a gimp mask and hides them around her house. Ed said one time her assistant found the mask before Courteney did and left it on Courtney’s bed. Below are a few more highlights via Yahoo!:

Sheeran met Cox in 2013 through mutual friends, and they quickly became close, resulting in an open invitation for him to stay at her Malibu home whenever he’s in town. Sheeran took her up on that offer, and it was during one of his stays that he had an idea.

“She has this Alexa thing in her house, and she goes, ‘Isn’t this wonderful? This is my Alexa. I can just order whatever on this.’ So she walks out of the room, and — do you know what a gimp mask is?” Sheeran stopped to ask Corden, who assured Sheeran that he indeed knows what one is. “So she walks out of the room,” Sheeran continued, “And I go, ‘Alexa, order me a gimp mask.’”

But Cox was not the first one to see the unexpected order.

But Cox’s assistant was just the first of many unsuspecting visitors to become victims of Sheerans’s prank.

“Now when I go back there, I order her another gimp mask. She has maybe, like, 12. I hide them in people’s bedrooms. So they’ll go in the drawer and find a leather S&M mask,” Sheeran said with a laugh. “She had two people come and look at her piano to try and buy it, two absolute strangers going into her house that I found out about. So I left a couple of masks on the piano.”

Tell me you are rich without telling me. The fact that Ed is able to order whatever he wants from Courteney’s Amazon account without her noticing tells me she doesn’t monitor her money like us poor plebes do. Everyone needs a deep pocketed friend like that in their lives and I am not jealous at all. I am still cracking up at the gimp mask. And seeing James in the gimp mask that Ed purchased him during the interview is definitely one of the funniest things I have seen this week. Ed sure has a naughty sense of humor. This sounds like something I would do to a friend but I would get like a vibrator or something. I do feel sorry for the assistant who probably has to return these items and see them first. Especially if they don’t have the same ridiculous sense of humor. Also the fact that Ed has ordered TWELVE gimp masks and has hid them all over the house is a flex for real. I would like to know how Courteney pranks Ed because he definitely deserves it back.

    how does nobody notice when the packages arrive? does he have them delivered elsewhere so he can pick them up without anyone (family or staff) noticing something’s arrived?

    • Erica says:

      My wife orders so much crap from online I barely notice when another package arrives LOL

      • ThEHufflepuffLizLemon says:

        My husband keeps joking about creating a stone walkway through the front lawn because the Amazon guy is wearing out the grass instead of walking up the drive. He also calls him my boyfriend 🤷🏻‍♀️😂

      • pottymouth pup says:

        yeah but does he have the packages addressed to himself when her orders via Courtney’s Alexa so nobody else opens the package & knows what’s in it? I don’t have alexa so I don’t know how the ordering using it works – if it just places an order for the account, can you just say “order x from y company & have it delivered to Ed at this home address?”

    • liz says:

      My mother has at least one or two Amazon packages arriving almost every day – stupid stuff – jar wrenches and cheap reading glasses. Having three packages come in one day wouldn’t be a surprise.

      When I tell her she needs to cut back, she does, at least long enough for her pension to catch up with her spending. As much as I hate the fact that she’s lining Jeff Bezos’s pockets, it makes her happy, so I keep my opinion to myself.

  2. North of Boston says:

    Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t think this is funny.

    It’d be one thing if he was just putting them in places where she’d find them. But hiding them where unsuspecting workers, or houseguests are going to find them might create awkward situations for 3rd parties who don’t know anything about this prank-based relationship.

    Like why do 2 guys hired to move a piano have to spend 1 second of their work day dealing with that? Because Ed thinks it’s hi-larious? Nah.

    • Lucy2 says:

      I think pranks in general are pretty stupid, and often not funny to the target.

      • Twin falls says:

        I think there are people who really find pranks funny and then people who really don’t.

    • Chaine says:

      I never had feelings about him one way or another before, but this story has me leaning to “dislike.” It’s like something a college student would do to prank their roommate in the dorm, but isn’t he like forty? and maybe it’s funny one time, but why keep trying to chase the high of that original reveal? If pranks are your thing get creative and move on to something new.

    • LaraW” says:

      If one of my so-called friends bought 12 gimp masks or whatever and distributed them around my house, I would ice them out. There’s NSFW, and then there’s f-ckin creepy. The sexual, and sexually violent messages for me cross a line.

  3. damejudi says:

    Alexa, order Ed a hairbrush.

    • Susan says:

      HAHA he does look a little…unkempt doesn’t he?? Thanks for the laugh

      • Yup, Me says:

        They’re doing “artfully ruffled” with his hair to cover how little there is of it. His hair seems to be really fine and thin and he’s already done at least one transplant procedure (the telltale line was visible during his GOT cameo.)

      • Golly Gee says:

        I read a comment somewhere that described him looking like a cross between a scarecrow and a potato.

  4. ItReallyIsYouNotMe says:

    I think it’s hilarious. I am sure that Courtney Cox has had to explain this ongoing prank with a lot of people. It sounds like they are a fun duo.

  5. TIFFANY says:

    I do not like this dude. At all. The entitlement of this. It is pretty telling that he is comfortable doing this to women.

    • MissF says:

      Why though? I’m a woman and I would find it funny. It’s not really an inappropriate prank if she finds it funny- sounds like they’re both adults having a laugh

  6. Willow says:

    I just get the impression he was a dorky guy, picked on in school, who’s now famous and popular. And instead of appreciating what he has and helping others, he’s become self-absorbed and entitled. If I’m wrong, then he needs a new pr manager.

    • Leonelda says:

      I weirdly like him because he takes very long social media fasts and usually doesn’t put himself out there too much – but he has been doing a LOT of promo for his recent single. I went to one of his concerts a couple of years ago and it was really good – remember looking at his tour dates and it was INSANE how long he was on tour and how many dates he had- it was like a concert every night for half a year. He struck me as really hard working and low key back then!

  7. Lyds says:

    This can be funny/not funny. He’s really creating a lot of legwork for the assistant. I can see Courtney laughing to his face and then rolling her eyes and apologizing to her assistant the 3rd time it’s happened. By the 12th, it’s rescind the invite time!

    But if they’re truly that close, like brother/sister, then yes I can see Courtney getting a huge kick out of it and screaming something like, “Ugh, that bloody mask!!!”
