Pete Davidson and Ariana Grande split up over the weekend. TMZ broke the news Sunday and it was confirmed by People Monday morning. The two got engaged in June after a brief whirlwind romance. The engagement between the Saturday Night Live star and the pop recording artist had been heavily commented on amongst diehard Stans.
Grande broke up with her serious boyfriend, the recently deceased rapper-producer, Mac Miller on May 10, 2018. Later that week on May 16, Davidson broke up with longtime girlfriend and daughter of comedian Larry David, Cazzie David. Some sources report that Miller’s apparent drug overdose on September 7 contributed to the couple’s split, but neither member of the couple has commented about the break up at this time. Sources close to the couple have commented that it was simply not the right time for their relationship to take off.
Davidson, up until this point, has been very open to talking about the relationship and has drawn criticism for talking graphically about their sex life (more specifically her small stature and his penis size). Just 2 weeks ago, he joked about replacing her birth control with Tic-Tacs on the SNL season premiere. In his defense, his then-girlfriend dropped the endowment bomb on Twitter first.
Davidson deleted his Instagram before the news of the split broke. Davidson has deleted social media before. Earlier this year, he left Instagram stating the “internet is an evil place,” before quietly returning to the app. He also deleted his Twitter account not long after starting at SNL. Grande, who is the third most followed person on Instagram, has not deleted her account or the photos of Davidson on it.
The last time the couple was seen together was last week. The couple had been engaged for 5 months.
