Why did Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson split? What was the reason for their break-up in 2018 which called off their engagement.
However, during her relationship with Pete, Ariana immortalised their relationship with Sweetener track 'Pete Davidson' which says she 'thought him into her life.'
But why did they split? What was the reason behind their break-up? Let’s take a look…
Opening up in an interview with Charlamagne Tha God, Pete revealed he knew their relationship was over when the tragic news broke that Ariana’s ex-boyfriend, Mac Miller, had died.
He said: “I was like, ‘Listen, I get it, do whatever you’ve got to do, I’ll be here.’
“I think I said, ‘I’ll be here until you don’t want me to be here.’
“I pretty much knew it was around over after that.
“That was really horrible, and I can’t imagine what that s**t is like.
“All I do know is that she really loved the s**t out of him, and she wasn’t putting on a show or anything.
"That was f****d up. Prayers to his family and all of his friends.”
After getting together in May 2018 after Ariana appeared on SNL in which Pete is a cast member, by October 2018 the pair had called it off.
Headlines circulated throughout the world and sources close to the singer reportedly told TMZ the whole relationship was 'way too much too soon.'
In a candid Vogue interview Ariana gave in 2019, she called the relationship 'unrealistic'.
She said: "I met Pete, and it was an amazing distraction."
"It was frivolous and fun and insane and highly unrealistic, and I loved him, and I didn’t know him."
He has since criticised her choice of words, calling them 'unfair' and said where he once wasn't going to do stand up material about their time together, he now sees it as 'fair game'.
