Ariana is newly single after ending things with Big Sean…but could she be moving on with Justin Bieber?! HollywoodLife.com has the EXCLUSIVE scoop about what’s really going on with Ari and the Biebs, and what the future holds for them.
The news of Ariana Grande, 21, and Big Sean’s, 27, split is completely devastating, but is it possible that the “Break Free” singer is already moving on? She’s been spending a lot of time with longtime pal, Justin Bieber, 21, lately, and their PDA-filled performances have led to speculation that a relationship may be brewing. HollywoodLife.com has the EXCLUSIVE details.
Ariana Grande Single: Justin Bieber Romance In The Works?
“It’s very unlikely that anything will happen between Justin and Ariana,” a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “They may hookup, but a full relationship will probably never happen between them.”
Considering busy schedules seem to be the main cause of Ariana and Sean’s breakup, chances are she’s too busy to get into another relationship right now anyway.
“They both deeply care for each other and remain close friends,” reps for the performers 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.”
While the exes’ reps say that things are amicable, though, HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned that trust issues also played a role.
“At the end of the day, they didn’t really trust each other,” a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “He is very smooth and Ariana saw how girls responded to him, basically throwing themselves at him. He never seemed to push them away as quickly as she would have liked. Plus, there were a number of times that Ariana saw suspicious texts on Sean’s phone. He always had an excuse, but these things add up.”
And the feeling was mutual — Sean had worries of his own. “Ariana doesn’t have a lot of guys around her, but the ones she does have she is very close with,” the insider added. “Her having such good guy friends was hard for Sean to take. Also, many of Ariana’s guy friends are dancers who are very good-looking and super ripped.”
Both Sean and Ari have kept quiet regarding any specifics of the reason they decided to end things, but have used social media as a platform to send a positive message to fans.
“Never satisfied but always thankful!” the rapper wrote on Instagram April 20. “We came up from nothing, Blessed! Blessed to be here n blessed to have y’all.”
Meanwhile, Ari sent out her own message on Twitter. “i love u babes so much,” she wrote, addressing her fans. “you’re a bunch of angels honestly. your love / care is appreciated so much. i’m good i promise.”
It was so sweet of Ariana to acknowledge that she’s hearing her fans’ support! She eventually deleted the tweet, but we’re hopping she still stands behind the message that everything is going okay!
HollywoodLifers, do you think Justin and Ariana would make a good couple? Or should she just lay low and stay single for now?
