ARI­ANA & PETE ‘SPLIT’ AF­TER WHIRL­WIND EN­GAGE­MENT

Closer (UK) - - Love Dramas -

They got en­gaged af­ter just four weeks to­gether but, last week, it was re­ported that Ari­ana Grande and fi­ancé Pete David­son’s whirl­wind re­la­tion­ship had come to an end.

Ari­ana, 25, and co­me­dian Pete, 24 – who got en­gaged in June – re­port­edly sep­a­rated ear­lier this month, with sources say­ing the pair ended things be­cause it “sim­ply wasn’t the right time for their re­la­tion­ship to take off”.

The news comes a month af­ter Ari­ana’s ex-boyfriend Mac Miller – whom she dated for two years be­fore they broke up in May – was found dead af­ter a sus­pected drugs over­dose. And sources say the tragedy put a strain on Ari­ana and Pete’s re­la­tion­ship, push­ing the cou­ple to “break­ing point”.

The singer im­posed a so­cial me­dia ban in the wake of Mac’s death, briefly break­ing it last week to tell fans that the tap­ing for a tele­vised ver­sion of the mu­si­cal Wicked had been “spe­cial”, be­fore adding on In­sta­gram Sto­ries, “Time to say bye-bye again to the in­ter­net for just a lil bit.”

She added, “It’s hard not to bump news n stuff that I’m not try­ing to see rn. It’s very sad and we’re all tryin very hard to keep go­ing. Love u. And thank u for bein here al­ways [sic].”

Ari­ana met co­me­dian Pete in 2016 on Satur­day Night Live, and they be­gan dat­ing in May this year – just weeks af­ter she split from Mac. They re­port­edly got en­gaged just four weeks later, with Ari­ana con­firm­ing the news with an In­sta­gram snap of her £100,000 ring in June.
