When Jennette McCurdy posted a Twitlonger attacking a former “friend” who was a “leech for drama,” (yikes!) all signs pointed directly at her former ‘Sam & Cat’ costar Ariana Grande. Are these two in a huge fight? An EXCLUSIVE source tells HollywoodLife.com the real truth behind the drama.
Are Jennette McCurdy, 21, and Ariana Grande, 20, in the friend feud of the summer? Not so fast. Jennette posted a previously-unreleased blog calling a “past friend” someone who “seemed to be a leech for drama and gossip” — and even revealed that being around this unnamed person was like being in “quicksand.” Talk about a strong, passionate diss of a frenemy!
Are Jennette McCurdy & Ariana Grande Friends Still?
Jennette’s no stranger to calling out people who cross her! And we totally applaud her for speaking her mind. However, the drama-filled ex-friend Jennette writes about is NOT Ariana.
“As far as I know, I know the situation pretty well — they’re not in a fight,” an EXCLUSIVE source reveals to HollywoodLife.com. “I really don’t think [the tweet] is about Ariana, and I know they haven’t had a falling out. They were still hanging out last week!” Hmm. While our source says the post isn’t directed at Ari, these two former costars don’t have a picture-perfect relationship.
“But I do now that there’s probably a lot of jealousy there — they’re young girls,” our source continues to spill. “Last week things were fine, but I do know there’s a little bit of jealousy because Jennette owned Nickelodeon and then Ariana came along,” our EXCLUSIVE source spills.
The “owning” Nickelodeon refers to Jennette’s past on iCarly. Jennette became a household name when iCarly hit the small screen in 2007, while Ariana didn’t get her big break on the channel until 2010 on Victorious.
Jennette McCurdy’s “Leech For Drama” Post: Who Is It About?
While this isn’t Jennette’s first scandal this year, it is the most vocal the actress has been in a long time! Whoever Jennette is talking about in her post, she ends with some seriously harsh words:
“If I see you, I won’t turn the other way and run (even though I want to). Instead, I’ll just smile and end the conversation as quickly as possible, because no offense, but I don’t want any of you rubbing off on me. Actually, that’s pretty offensive. Oh well.”
We gotta admit, we love Jennette for never taking anything from anyone and ALWAYS speaking her mind about what she really thinks! What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Do you think Jennette was talking about someone other than Ariana in her post? Let us know in the comments below!
