When Ariana Grande was caught on camera kissing her new man, Ricky Alvarez on July 4 at Lake Elsinore, CA’s Wolfee Donuts, they were also seen licking donuts and putting them back. Now the owner, Joe Marin tells HollywoodLife.com that he unknowingly sold those doughnuts to other customers and now he’s contacting the authorities!
Doughnut gate, starring the one and only Ariana Grande! The 22-year-old was caught on camera with her backup dancer, Ricky Alvarez, at Wolfee Donuts in LA over the Fourth of July weekend grabbing some sweet treats but even though they bought a dozen doughnuts, it’s what they did to the doughnuts that has owner, Joe Marin furious! He tells HollywoodLife.com in an exclusive interview that he is demanding an apology from the singer for “spitting and licking” on several of his doughnuts and then putting them back on the tray!
Ariana and her man didn’t know they were being filmed by Wolfee Donuts’ security camera when they stopped by around 11:30pm on July 4 and we’re sure right now that they wish they had just stayed home! Just like your mother always says, don’t play with your food. The singer and Ricky were caught kissing and that’s all anyone could talk about but upon further inspection it appears the reason they were laughing so much was because they were tampering with the doughnuts on the counter as a practical joke. “Yes, I’m upset,” Wolfee Donuts owner Joe Marin tells us. “We sold those by accident to other people and didn’t catch it until hours later.”
The 24-hour doughnut store is a favorite among locals and they pride themselves on their savory treats, so Joe was absolutely horrified when he watched the tapes back and saw Ariana and Ricky “licking and spitting” on three doughnuts before putting them back on the counter. “I want an apology,” Joe says. “We are reaching out to the customers but it wasn’t until the next morning when I watched the tape that I caught them licking and spitting, I call it spitting on the doughnuts.” Wow, that’s totally disgusting that other people unknowingly ate the doughnuts they licked and it’s not funny at all to tamper with food! This seems so unlike Ariana but it was caught on tape.
