The pair had been dating for around two years before their recent surprise break up.
After the news emerged, the pair had remained silent on the split, but now Ariana has opened up for the first time via Instagram Stories.
Alongside a picture of herself with her arm around Mac, Ariana spoke about unconditional love and how proud she is of her ex boyfriend.
She wrote, 'This is one of my best friends in the whole world and favourite people on the planet malcolm mccormick. I respect and adore him endlessly and am grateful to have him in my life in any form, at all times regardless of how our relationship changes or what the universe holds for each of us!'
Ariana added, 'Unconditional love is not selfish. It is wanting the best for that person even if at the moment it's not you. I can't wait to know and support you forever and I'm so proud of you!!'
Fans took to Instagram to share just how upset they were following the sudden split and Ariana's touching message...
