Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson suddenly split after a whirlwind romance, and a new source has some information about what went down behind closed doors.
The 25 year old singer, Ariana Grande and 24 year old comedian, Pete Davidson have reportedly split after getting engaged a few months ago. A source told ET that the couple broke up due to bad timing. Grande is still dealing with the death of her ex-boyfriend Mac Miller due to a reported drug overdose which happened at the start of September.
The source explained:
“Ariana made the final decision. It was time to realize this wasn’t the right time for them and Pete is incredibly heartbroken. Pete is still so in love with her. He wanted his whole world to revolve around her but she was emotionally unavailable. He realizes she was at her limit with pressure from everyone and everything around her. There were days she just wanted to run away from the world just to get some peace and quiet and peace of mind. Pete had to give her that space out of love.”
The source added, “Ariana and Pete didn’t plan this abrupt split, but they both know this breakup is the right decision for them right now. Their family and friends stand behind their decision entirely and Ariana’s team feels this will give her time to heal.”
“They got engaged because they both felt this instant connection and even now after their split they are still deeply in love. But their timing has truly affected their plans and made it impossible for them to make it work at the moment. … They have a very special connection, partly because Pete has been there for Ariana during a painful time in her life. She will forever and always be grateful to Pete,” the source further explained.
It was also revealed that Grande and Davidson were getting uncomfortable with how their lives were always under a constant microscope, explaining, “They felt constantly under a microscope. They felt that they literally had no privacy and it really took a toll on their relationship.”
Their relationship has ended but not fizzled out, as the source explained, “They have not stopped talking since they made the decision to split and in fact they plan on trying to stay close friends or maybe one day even more than that. They are remaining positive and looking forward to a future together where they may be best friends and still haven’t ruled out the possibility of one day making their relationship work.”
Both of them are currently choosing to focus on their careers, “They just know that they cannot be engaged right now or be in a serious relationship because of the stress Ariana has had to face recently and the stress of their careers. Pete’s acting career has taken off. He signed on to so many projects and feature films and Ariana has a huge album to promote. And they just barely have time for that. They want to make sure if they ever do decide one day to make it work that they make their relationship a priority. They both want a family one day and realize they will have to step back a bit from their careers to do that. They love and trust each other so much and want to keep the option open for a further together.”
Grande cancelled an appearance last minute on Saturday.
