Ariana Grande and Mac Miller break up after almost two years of dating
The couple has decided to go their separate ways due to their busy schedules becoming too much for the couple to continue as a pair
Looks like 2018 is the year for break-ups all over. According to new reports from multiple sources, Ariana Grande and Mac Miller seem to have parted ways after about two-and-a-half years of dating each other, although they still claim to be good friends with each other.
The news of the 'No Tears Left to Cry' singer and her beau Miller breaking up comes as a shock to millions of fans since the couple was recently seen cuddling at Coachella last month. Before that, the duo was seen together during the 2018 Oscars weekend, where they attended Madonna's highly exclusive after-party.
Grande and her Pittsburgh rapper boyfriend first went public with their relationship in 2016, post which they even collaborated with each other on a couple of songs like Grande's 2013 breakout hit "The Way" and Miller's "My Favorite Part."
Back when things were great, Grande had 'fessed up to Ellen on the Ellen Degeneres show how happy she was with Miller. “This is so crazy. I’ve never had the relationship talk on a show before," she revealed on the show in September 2016.
As per reports by TMZ, which was the first publication to break the news of their split, the couple has decided to go their separate ways due to their busy schedules becoming too much for the couple to continue as a pair.
Their recent split might just be the reason why Grande attended the 2018 Met Gala solo in a Vera Wang gown that was inspired from a painting of Michelangelo’s “The Last Judgment,” found at the Sistine Chapel in Vatican City.
Just last year, Grande, in a conversation with Cosmopolitan, had admitted to having feelings for Miller for a long time.
"We have loved and adored and respected each other since the beginning, since before we even met, just because we were fans of each other's talent," she told the publication.
However, it is still hard to believe that the 'Side to Side' singer and her 26-year-old rapper boyfriend have split up, since Miller had written an extremely sweet tweet in honor of the singer after she released her new song last month.
Miller has always been seen as Grande's rock, especially after one of her concerts in Manchester, England went through a massive suicide bombing. An emotionally scarred Grande apparently clung on to Miller for support ever since the May 22 shooting took place that killed 22 Grande fans and left 119 injured.
In order to show his solidarity at the immense loss, Miller even took the stage with his then-girlfriend at her One Love Manchester concert, where the couple sang “The Way” and “Dang!” while also sharing a kiss on stage.
The two musicians always believed in keeping their work life separate from their personal life, and Miller even spoke on the issue in an interview. "Just because we are two people who are in love and have a great relationship doesn't mean I am going to get weird about this incredible music we make," Mac had earlier shared on Power 105's The Breakfast Club.
"I'm here to talk about music and I happen to be in a fantastic relationship with someone I also enjoy making music with so those lines can get blurred very easily on what I am here trying to do."
