Ariana Grande and Big Sean Break Up
Ariana Grande and Big Sean have split. The breakup is confirmed, with the former couple reportedly parting ways, amicably, a few weeks ago. Their touring schedules and the resulting time apart is said to have led to the split.
“They both deeply care for each other and remain close friends,” their reps tell Gossip Cop in a joint statement. “We kindly ask that the media respect their wish for privacy regarding this personal matter at this time.”
Grande and Sean confirmed their relationship last October after months of speculation among fans. They have collaborated professionally, too, including on the recent track “Research.”
In an interview with Complex in January, Sean said of Grande, “We started as friends. I’d never done that. Usually you meet a girl and then start dating. We always saw each other in the studio, and we’d talk about songs we were working on. It was cool to have a girl that I could talk to about my problems. I did that with her… This is something special and I appreciate every moment of it.”
Neither Sean nor Grande has said anything about the split on social media yet. Gossip Cop will have updates.
