Ellie Goulding has revealed she hasn't seen her mum since her wedding last year. The Love Me Like You Do singer opened up about her strained relationship with her mother Tracey in a new interview with the Guardian. She shared: "It's frustrating because I really want to talk to you about it. But she became quite threatening when I did talk about her in the press. Discussing her was a disaster."

The 33-year-old continued: "I haven't seen my mother since my wedding [to art dealer Caspar Jopling] last year. I've done a lot of therapy about it because what I thought was fixable isn't fixable. I think a lot of women have difficult relationships with their mothers and we find it hard to talk openly about that.

"I was talking to another woman earlier today who isn't in contact with her mother and finds that deeply scarring. I hope one day I'll be able to get this off my chest. But for now I know it comes bubbling through my subconscious, through my music."

"There is no one I have ever been more complete with and there is no one I will ever feel more complete with.
