Ariana Grande split from Pete Davidson after reportedly struggling with ex-boyfriend Mac Miller’s death
Mac Miller's death was the final straw that led to the breakup of Ariana Grande and her fiance Pete Davidson
Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson have called off their short engagement and have reportedly broken up. The couple's breakup comes very shortly after the death of Ariana's former boyfriend Mac Miller.
As reported by TMZ, Mac Miller's death was the final trigger which led to the couple choosing to go their own way. The death is supposed to have affected the pop star a lot since it was barely a week after she broke up with Miller in May 2018 than she announced that she was seeing Pete.
Things came crashing down when Miller died of an apparent drug overdose on September 7 and some fans pointed accusatory fingers at her being the cause. Even though she feels like she did everything she could to help him, his death left her in a very bad place. Already, her relationship with Pete was being tested at every step, firstly for the circumstances under which it was announced, their decision to get engaged so soon (June) and then some other reasons. Post Miller's death, she realized that she had rushed into the relationship by getting engaged.
The couple broke things off over the weekend and it is reported that the decision to split was mutual though it was Grande who took the final step. Both Grande and Davidson admitted that this was not 'the right time for their relationship'. The pair had only been dating for around four weeks when they decided to get engaged. The couple has not ruled out any possibilities including one about a reunion sometime in the future.
Ariana has been going through a rough time recently and told her fans that she was desperate to have "one okay day". She took to Twitter to her ask, "can I pls have one okay day. just one. pls" before adding "nothing will ever b ok". "jus wake me up when I'm supposed to sing or whatever. peace," she further added.
After Miller's death, it was a pretty trying time for the singer. Fans were blaming her for Miller's death. She was trying to grieve publicly and it was all a big mess. Ariana took to Instagram to share, "I adored you from the day I met you when I was nineteen and I always will. I can’t believe you aren’t here anymore. I really can’t wrap my head around it. We talked about this. so many times. I’m so mad, I’m so sad I don’t know what to do".
Meanwhile, the whole episode has played out differently on social media as well. With some saying that they knew the couple was doomed from the start and would not be together in the long run, some have even started a go-fund-me page for Pete to move out of the apartment the duo share and while few others sided with the young pop star and said that she should be allowed to grieve and she has clearly been through the wringer lately so probably this could be her means of coping.
