Ellie Goulding recently revealed that she has been secretly coping with a heart condition for over a year. Read on for more details.

In her recent interview with Mail Online, 28-year-old English singer Ellie Goulding said that she has been forced to cut down on exercise when she discovered her heart condition last year. Goulding is a fitness enthusiast and she has been sharing photos of her fit body and intense workouts on Instagram. She also revealed that she has been putting her health at risk by ignoring her heart defect, which has now made her cut down on her workout routine.

The “Love Me Like You Do” singer has also been interviewed by Perth Now and she told them that she was diagnosed last year but did not get her heart checked out properly. Goulding started to talk about her condition after she got accused of lip-syncing when she performed at the Australian Football League finals in Melbourne earlier this week. She pointed out to her critics and said that she has other things to worry about at the moment.

“I found out I have this heart thing and I need to get it checked out. I’m fine, it’s actually something someone discovered last year but I never got it checked out. Which is terrible, I have been playing with my life,” she revealed.

Goulding also said that she complied with her doctors’ advice to ease up on her fitness routine. She also added that she has been relaxing, chilling, and not being as militant about what she eats.

According to Mail Online, Ellie Goulding started running when she was 18 years old. She has also competed in a half marathon before and even teamed up with popular apparel and footwear brand Nike. She is also an avid supporter of the World Heart Federation.
