It seems like this year is really not about love. Despite major public display of affection, Pete Davidson and Ariana Grande have finally split up. Sounds unbelievable, right? Nobody could have bought this idea in the first attempt. But by the looks of it, your favorite couple is no longer together. However, the real reasons behind the split are still kept unknown. Undoubtedly, there are a lot of speculations on the table, but representatives on either side have not commented on anything. Everything that we know about the split comes from sources close to either Pete Davidson or Ariana Grande. And apparently, breaking up has been a mutual decision.
Did They Split Up For Real?
Multiple sources have confirmed it to PEOPLE that the couple has called quits on their relationship. According to the TMZ, Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson called off their engagement on Sunday. A source close to Ariana has shared that it was way too soon for them. And that this is not shocking to anybody. Other sources inform that the decision to split up was completely mutual because both of them felt that the timing was not right. By the end of Sunday evening, Ariana Grande still had out pictures with her ex-fiance on her social media accounts. But Pete Davidson had already deactivated his Instagram. As of now, there is no evidence of Pete Davidson ever being involved with the singer from the face of her Instagram account.
Splitting up with Davidson might have been a harder choice for Ariana Grande. Given that the singer was already enduring difficult times following the death of her ex-boyfriend Mac Miller lost to addiction. Especially, since a major part of the world was holding Grande responsible for his drug overdose. She had been previously venting her feelings on Twitter but then decided to take a break. Her team announced this to the public that Ariana Grande was taking some time to mend and heal.
According to the statements, the couple still loves one another but things are definitely over romantically.
Did We See The Split Coming?
Well, being the observant gossip-collecting audience that we are, yes. We could have seen this coming for a long time now. But reminisces of their romance and PDA just did not allow us to believe this. Despite many signs being thrown our way, this split will always be a shock to many.
To begin with, Pete Davidson had started covering his Ariana Grande tattoo. During the early days of their romance, Davidson got the bunny ears tattooed on his left side of the neck. The exact one that his ex-fiance wore on the cover of her Dangerous Woman album. But in recent appearances, we could no longer spot his tattoo as a huge heart had replaced it.
Then, at the premiere of the 44th season of Saturday Night Live, we had to endure a politically charged performance by Kanye West. And that’s because Ariana Grande backed out for emotional reasons. Only a day before the split announcement came, Grande also backed out of attending a cancer benefit hosted by Grande’s manager Scooter Braun.
To add another spark to all this, let’s stalk Ariana Grande’s social media presence. Towards the end of September, she talked about her emotional exhaustion which clearly reflected from a series of her tweets.
And maybe, that’s enough evidence to finally settle the matter of the split. As unreal as it sounds, Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson are done. At least for now. We hope they both find peace in their lives, regardless of them being together or not.
