Another person close to the situation told People that it was: "Too much too soon". "It's not shocking to anyone".
Grande is going through a hard time, particularly after the death of her ex-boyfriend Mac Miller last month, and has canceled appearances at recent events. From then on, the two became very public with their PDA, both on and off social media.
The former engaged couple have reportedly split weeks following Grande's ex-boyfriend Mac Miller dying. Lately, posts together have whittled down; Davidson's social media accounts have been deleted as of writing. TMZ originally reported the news, and a source close to Grande confirmed it to PEOPLE, saying the decision was mutual. She wrote, "it's just been a tough month. i'm trying to get my work done and get back to normal and it's hard and i'm human and exhausted". And they were well into writing a prenup, as per People last October 9.
Ariana was shortly afterwards spotted with a hefty engagement ring that was thought to have cost over $100,000.
It's all over for Ariana Grande & Pete Davidson.
Grande previously canceled her gig as the musical guest on the September 29 season premiere of Saturday Night Live, for "emotional reasons", executive producer Lorne Michaels announced.
A source is claiming that Ariana is the one who prompted the breakup. Look, they got more matching tattoos. You know, like, I was in love with somebody.
The tea-spiller went on to say: "Ariana hated that she was breaking Pete's heart but also understood it was the right decision in the long run".
