Friends beg Ariana: ‘get help now’
She’s struggling to cope after her break-up
With everything she’s been through over the last 18 months, no one could blame Ariana Grande for needing help. But getting her to accept that help is going to be the hard part. Insiders tell heat the singer is at breaking point following the end of her engagement to Pete Davidson, and friends are worried she won’t be able to deal with everything on her own. In fact, they’re now begging her to consider rehab.
“Ariana is inconsolable, and people have been urging her to book herself into a treatment centre or a wellness retreat,” says an insider close to the 25 year old, who recently tweeted, “Can i pls have one okay day. just one. Pls ,” as she admitted to struggling. “Ariana has to deal with her feelings, she has unresolved issues,” we’re told. “On the outside, it may seem like she’s OK, but deep down, she’s vulnerable.”
Last week, heat told you how the singer was considering quitting public life for good, having pulled out of a performance at a charity gala in LA following the end of her relationship with Saturday Night Live comedian Pete. The pair started dating in May, getting engaged just weeks later, in what finally seemed like good news for the star, who’s dealt with one horrendous blow after another. She was diagnosed with PTSD after the Manchester bombing that killed 22 of her fans last year, followed by the tragic death of her ex-boyfriend, rapper Mac Miller, in September. She’s posted several tributes to Mac – who was only 26 – including one last week, where she shared a video of him smiling as he chatted to her grandmother.
“This has been an emotional roller coaster for her,” says our source. “It’s a miracle she’s still holding it together after everything she’s seen. A lot of people think it would be good for her to take a break and get professional help. Everyone’s rooting for her, and the main thing that Ariana needs to know is that she’s loved.”
