Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson seen together for the first time since Mac Miller's death
Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson, who are now engaged, did not turn up at the Emmys on Monday and instead chose to walk around Manhattan with a single bodyguard
Pop star Ariana Grande has had a tough time dealing with the news of Mac Miller's death. Her grief over the death of her ex-boyfriend was even more evident when she was spotted taking a walk with her fiance, Pete Davidson. The couple had not appeared at the Emmys where Davidson's show 'Saturday Night Live', won the award for best variety sketch series while his co-stars Colin Jost and Michael Che hosted the NBC telecast.
The 25-year-old singer was spotted with her 24-year-old fiance on Monday at New York City, going for a long stroll with just one bodyguard to their aid. Looking absolutely broken, the 'God is a Woman' singer seemed to find solace in Davidson who tried to comfort her as they walked along. After walking for close to 30 blocks, Grande rested her head on Davidson's chest as they waited at a street corner. As she strolled in an oversized sweat-shirt and clay toned high heeled boots, Grande seemed to almost break down in tears as she held on to Davidson's arms. At times, she chose to walk alone with her arms crossed.

Grande has been going through a hard phase following Miller's death. Although seats for her and Davidson were already reserved at the Emmys where they were expected to arrive, Grande's team informed the Emmys that the singer will not be attending the ceremony. “Contrary to reports, Ariana will not be attending the Emmys tonight. Pete has also opted to not attend to be with her in New York.”
The show came almost 10 days after Miller's death, at the time when Grande is known to be suffering from anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder. Probably the other reason behind her anxiety is the aftermath she faced when a suicide bomber killed 22 people and injured more than 500 in a terrorist attack at the Manchester show of her 'Dangerous Woman' Tour on May 22, 2017.
Only four days ago, Grande had posted a short moment that she had shared with Miller on Instagram, where she wrote that he would always be precious to her and that she "really can’t wrap [her] head around it."
Mac Miller was found dead on September 7 at Studio City, California, due to an apparent drug overdose. Miller's loyal fans were infuriated by the fact that the rapper's name was not included in this year's 'In Memoriam' segment at the Emmys. While the segment included some of the other late stars like Aretha Franklin, John McCain, Burt Reynolds, and Hugh Hefner, fans could not help but wonder why the rapper's name was left out.
(Twitter was flooded with fans who were appalled at the rapper's name being missed out)
How do you NOT put Mac Miller on the list of ppl we lost this year even if it is the Emmys. Smh #EmmyAwards2018— Drew (@drewcroesch) September 18, 2018
