Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson have ended their engagement after four months of posing for steamy PDA photos on red carpets.
“It happened last weekend,” a source confirmed to Us Weekly. “They realized it happened too quick and too early. The wedding is off, but they’re working things out. They’re not officially done yet.”
TMZ reported that the couple split over the weekend, with the singer and the Saturday Night Live star acknowledging that it was “not the right time for their relationship to take off.”
Grande and Davidson, both 24, got engaged in June after just a few weeks of dating. Grande took to social media to show off her huge $100,000 diamond ring.
It isn’t clear if Davidson asked for the ring back or if Grande plans to keep it for prosperity.
Davidson opened up about his struggles with borderline personality disorder in October 2017.
In an Instagram Story he defended himself against critics who questioned his ability to maintain a healthy relationship with Grande if he is mentally ill.
“Normally I wouldn’t comment on something like this cause fuck you,” he wrote. “But I been hearing a lot of ‘people with bpd can’t be in relationships’ talk. I just wanna let you know that’s not true.”
“Just because someone has a mental illness does not mean they can’t be happy and in a relationship. It also doesn’t mean that person makes the relationship toxic. Everybody is different and there are a lot of treatments for mental illness and I have done/am doing all of them… I’m simply writing this because I want everyone out there who has an illness to know that it’s not true and that anyone who says that is ill and full of shit. Mental illness is not a joke it’s a real thing. There’s kids out there killing them selves [sic]. And it’s fucking horrific. For all those struggling I want you to know that I love you and I understand you and it is going to be okay. That’s all. Love to everyone else.”
Grande continues to struggle with the death of her ex-boyfriend, rapper Mac Miller, who died of a drug overdose on Sept. 7 at age 26.
Grande canceled a Saturday Night Live gig in September for “emotional reasons”. Rapper Kanye West, who was also diagnosed with bipolar disorder, substituted for her on SNL.
He caused a firestorm of controversy when he gave a speech supporting President Trump and called out the Democrats for taking Black fathers out of the home.
