Ariana Grande’s Grandfather’s One Last Wish
Ariana’s grandpa showed strength until his last day. A source close to Ariana tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY what his last wish for his sweet granddaughter was.
“The last thing he told her was to honor her work commitments and to go to NYC and sing her heart out on GMA [Good Morning America]. Once the taping was done, she broke down in tears and cried on Ryan Seacrest’s shoulder…” the source says.
Our thoughts are with Ariana and her family during this difficult time.
