Big Sean, Ariana Grande Breakup — The Reason Behind Their Split
“They both deeply care for each other and remain close friends,” the pair’s reps told HollywoodLife.com in a joint statement. “We kindly ask that the media respect their wish for privacy regarding this personal matter at this time.”
The rapper and singer got together in 2014 after collaborating on music together, and have publicly professed their love for one another on multiple occasions ever since. However, according to Us Weekly, things fizzled out, and they amicably decided to end things just a few weeks ago.
“They made the decision to part ways because their conflicting touring schedules would keep them apart over the next year,” a source told Us. So sad — there’s nothing they can do about busy schedules!
Still, it was just as recently as March 7 that the lovebirds shared the stage together during Ariana’s Honeymoon tour, and made it clear they were still very much in love by sharing a passionate kiss on stage.
On the same day, Ariana took to Instagram to post a selfie with her man, calling him “my baby” in the caption.
Ah, things change so fast! Can’t we go back to these days?!
While conflicting schedules seem to be a major cause of the couple’s decision to end things, there’s also been a lot of tension in their relationship throughout the last several weeks because of Ari’s performances with Justin Bieber, 21, who got a little handsy as the duo hit the stage together.
Naturally, Big Sean wasn’t too happy about another man putting his hands on his lady, as HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY reported.
“He’s pissed. He gets that they’re performing and all that, but he did not like the way Justin was touching Ariana. He thinks he’s way too cocky and needs to be taken down a notch,” a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
Eek! What do you have to say for yourself, Biebs?!
