Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson are ending things as a couple, and their engagement has officially been called off.
Sources close to the former couple tell TMZ they split this weekend, with both parties acknowledging that it simply was not the right time for their relationship to take off. “We’re told the two still have love for each other, but things are over romantically.”
Ariana and Pete announced their surprise engagement earlier this year in June — just a few weeks after they were reported to be just casually dating. Grande’s engagement ring cost right around $100k.
Grande’s recently expressed she was going through a rough patch, tweeting a lot of personal messages and saying she needs a break from the public spotlight and asking “can i pls have one okay day. just one. pls.”
As for Davidson, he’s continued to appear on SNL, even mentioning his former fiancee in a couple sketches. The last time we saw them together was just last week.
Our source says while things may be done for the couple for now, the two aren’t ruling out the possibility of anything in the future.
On July 7th, TMZ has leaked a raw video of Ariana Grande with Ricky and his relatives at a donut shop while they were celebrating the Fourth of July. Ariana and Ricky were caught kissing on camera, which confirms their relationship. Controversy has been brought up when Ariana Grande licked donuts and her choice of words when she cursed and said “I hate America”. Well folks, that is all explained.
Ariana Grande took it to Twitter to apologize for the actions that happened during that night, saying how everything was put out of context. She sets a great example of the US and the obesity weight that brings a negative impact on society:
need to clean up this mouth of mine & set a better example for my babes. i apologize and i love you. always learning. pic.twitter.com/BkJWcLxR5y
She also explains how she cancelled the MLB show due to her oral surgery of having her wisdom teeth removed. Also, in the video, you can see Ariana and the employee laughing along as Ariana was amazed at how huge the donuts were. That’s why she has used those words about America, but TMZ did not show this in the first video released!
They grew up together onscreen in Nickelodeon’s Victorious.
But the reports of bad blood between Victoria Justice and Ariana Grande began the moment their hit series came to an end in 2013. Now Victoria, 21, has insisted to TMZ that ‘there is no feud’ between she and the 21-year-old singer.
Victoria took the heat for the rumoured spat, as she embarked on a solo music tour near the time her popular dramedy wrapped. ‘Is there any part of you that regrets breaking up the band with Ariana Grande?’ a cameraman asked the actress as she arrived at Los Angeles International Airport on Thursday.
Victoria immediately defended herself, saying, ‘I didn’t break up anything.” The star was thought to have left the show to pursue her own music career. But she explained, ‘That’s complete misinformation, because first of all I had no control over leaving the show or the show ending. That was completely up to Nickelodeon and the executives.
‘I love the cast and I loved doing Victorious,’ the starlet continued, ‘me going on tour when I did had nothing to do with whether or not there was a Victorious tour. ‘There’s much more to that story that people don’t know,’ Victoria quipped. ‘I don’t think it’s fair though to blame that on me because it’s not true.’
Yet, the actress insists, ‘There is no feud.’ She clarified, ‘We’re not like best friends, but at the end of the day, I wish her well. And she’s doing great, and I’m happy for her.’ The Fun Size star also says the pair are not competitive with one another, stating, ‘We are on our own different paths, doing our own thing.’
