NW - - News In A Flash! -

Ari­ana Grande and Pete David­son’s en­gage­ment is over as quickly as it be­gan, with the cou­ple an­nounc­ing their split last week. And NW hears the tragic death of Ari’s ex Mac Miller from a sus­pected drug over­dose on Septem­ber 7 played a huge part in their split – as she’s not over him!

“Ari­ana’s still dev­as­tated and over­whelmed,” a source tells In Touch mag­a­zine of the singer, who’s given Pete back the $140,000 ring he popped the ques­tion with in June. “She feels like she needs time alone to grieve and fo­cus on her­self,” they add.

In­sid­ers say Ari, 25, and the 24-year-old SNL funnyman had been at odds for weeks. And de­spite all their PDA, “there were lots of fights and strug­gles be­hind the scenes.”

Ari­ana her­self hinted in an In­sta trib­ute last month that she may still be har­bour­ing feel­ings for her late ex. “I adored you from the day I met you when I was nine­teen and I al­ways will,” she wrote along­side a clip of the rap­per.

Stay strong, Ari!
