Playing Ariana Grande Splits From Boyfriend Ricky Alvarez

Ariana Grande is a single woman again.

The 23-year-old singer has broken up with her boyfriend, backup dancer Ricky Alvarez, a source confirms to ET. Grande and Alvarez were first linked together last summer when they were spotted kissing in the infamous surveillance video of her licking donuts at a donut store in Lake Elsinore, California.

Grande seems to have hinted at the split on social media, deleting Instagram posts with Alvarez in them. She's also got a brand new 'do.

"Life is wild," the "Dangerous Woman" singer tweeted on Saturday, adding, "and change is f**king fantastic."

"Change. feelin free. happy. Banginnnnnnn," she also tweeted, but ended up deleting.

In March, Grande was still very much smitten with her dancer beau, making out with him at a Saturday Night Live after-party celebrating her successful stint as both host and musical guest.

Prior to Alvarez, Grande dated rapper Big Sean for eight months, before the two split in April 2015.

Interestingly enough, earlier this month, the singer reunited with her ex, actor Graham Phillips, for dinner in Los Angeles. The two dated in 2011 while Grande was still starring in Nickelodeon's Victorious, and also starred in Broadway's 13 together.
