It comes six months after Ed, 31, estava cleared of copying his smash hit Shape of You in a London trial.

He was awarded £900,000 costs.

After the March verdict he took to Instagram to say that the accusations were “really damaging to the songwriting industry”.

The new £90million claim alleges that Ed and co-writer Amy Wadge “copied and exploited” the Gaye song.

The lawsuit was originally lodged in 2018 by a US investment banker and the company Structured Asset Sales after they acquired a portion of the 70s classic.

The trial will be in Nova york.
