Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson Split: All the Signs That Pointed to Their Breakup

The couple reportedly ended their whirlwind romance over the weekend.

Fans of Pete Davidson and Ariana Grande likely have whiplash from following the former couple’s whirlwind romance over the past few months. 

Shortly after splitting from their respective exes, Cazzie David and Mac Miller, Davidson and Grande went public with their romance in May. Weeks later, the Saturday Night Live star proposed to the “God Is A Woman” singer with a $93,000 diamond sparkler. From then on, the two became very public with their PDA, both on and off social media. 

After only a few months together, news broke this weekend that the pair had called it quits and ended their engagement. Though many fans were surprised by the breakup, there have been a few signs that have indicated that their relationship was on the rocks.

For starters, Grande has mainly stayed out of the spotlight since the death of her ex Miller in September. The 25-year-old pop star posted several tributes to Miller online, and chose to skip the Emmy Awards where Davidson and the cast of SNL were honored. Davidson also chose to stay home with his then-fiancee. 

Despite this, the pair appeared to still be going strong. They adopted a pig named Piggie Smalls together, and Davidson got the pet tattooed on the side of his body. 

In fact, Davidson publicly spoke his romance with Grande several times following Miller’s death. First, he appeared on SiriusXM’s The Howard Stern Show to openly talk about his fiancee, and he was then teased on the premiere of SNL about the quick engagement. Following that premiere, he gushed about Grande on Late Night with Seth Meyers

Grande, meanwhile, appeared to be struggling. In late September, she took to Twitter to share some of her tougher moments with fans. 

“Can I pls have one OK day. just one. pls,” she wrote. “I’m so tired pls.” 

Referencing her “tough month,” Grande thanked her fans for their support. 

Grande also pulled out of performing on the premiere of SNL for “emotional reasons.” 

Despite publicly joking about his romance, Davidson seemingly showed signs of an imminent split from Grande in mid-October. He was seen at a Yankees game with his Grande-inspired neck tattooed covered up with a large heart. The move was oddly reminiscent of the Cazzie David-inspired tattoo he had covered after their split earlier this year. 

Then over the weekend, Grande pulled out of a scheduled appearance at the F**k Cancer’s inaugural Barbara Berlanti Heroes fundraising gala. The cancellation happened just hours before the split news broke, and Grande’s manager, Scooter Braun, spoke out about it at the event where he was being honored. 

“Someone I’m very close to was supposed to come to sing for you today, and because of things she’s going through, she couldn’t be here today,” Braun said. “And while I was frustrated, being the manager, my wife, being who she always is, just looked at me and she goes, ‘She needs this time.’”

Shortly after that news, multiple outlets reported that Grande and Davidson had split

Neither Grande nor Davidson has yet to publicly speak out about the breakup. Davidson has seemingly deleted his Instagram account yet again, and Grande hasn’t posted for days.
