Who is Frankie Grande? Ariana's brother debunks Kanye's Pete Davidson claims
American rapper Kanye West is known for making controversial statements and throwing around remarks. The 44-year-old took to Instagram on Sunday before the Super Bowl, sharing an image of a rumor that Pete Davidson sent intimate photos of him and Ariana Grande to her former boyfriend Mac Miller.
Ariana's brother, Frankie Grande denied Kanye's claims and told TMZ, "Kanye loves to stir the pot, so nothing that he says ever surprises me at all. I wish nothing but the best to him, and to his family, to Pete, and to everyone involved." When asked if he had heard about the rumor from Ariana, Frankie said, "I've never heard of that. Never in my life, but people love to make things up." He added, "My philosophy is I'm never gonna tell anyone how to live their life or what to do. All I can do is lead by example in my own life and say that I would never spread rumors about people or say anything or open my mouth somewhere where it doesn't belong."

"I would just hope that the rest of the world can take my lead and go with it, but like he can't control other people and that's the thing I feel like we need to learn as like a society. I mean, try and stay in your own lane but live life with integrity and try to inspire other people to do the same," Frankie continued. When the 39-year-old was asked whether he thought Pete Davidson was dating Kim Kardashian for clout, he laughed, "Kim Kardashian is one of the hottest people on the planet, I love her with my entire heart. There are a billion reasons to date Kim Kardashian so I think that that is silly. I think that he's got great- there's a lot of good reasons to date Kim."
"I mean, I am gay, but I would date Kim Kardashian, you know what I'm saying? I'm engaged, that's my fiance, but if Kim Kardashian said, 'Frankie Grande, I wanna date you,' I'd be like sorry Hale, we're going on a break for a bit," the social media personality joked.
Apart from spreading this rumor, Kanye also posted a series of bizarre Instagram posts dragging Pete Davidson and claiming that he would never let him meet his children. He shared an image of a text from Davidson where the 28-year-old is hoping that he can meet Kim and Kanye's kids so all of them can become friends. He captioned the now-deleted post, "NO YOU WILL NEVER MEET MY CHILDREN" and included an image of Pete where he is fooling around with a friend.
Users on the internet feel Kanye is jealous of Kim Kardashian moving on with Davidson, which is why he is lashing out publicly and calling them out. "IF ANYONE LOVES ME AND MY FAMILY IF YOU SEE SKETE IN REAL LIFE SCREAM AT THE LOOSER AT THE TOP OF YOUR LUNGS AND SAY KIMYE FOREVER," Kanye captioned another post with a broken heart emoji.
Kanye also posted a text from Kim where she says that he is creating "a scary environment" and that "someone will hurt Pete and this will all be your fault". He captioned the post, "UPON MY WIFE'S REQUEST PLEASE NOBODY DO ANYTHING PHYSICAL TO SKETE IM GOING TO HANDLE THE SITUATION MYSELF." The rapper posted an image of a truck full of flowers that he sent to Kim for Valentine's Day, and the internet thinks he is trying too hard to get back with her.
