Ariana Grande hasn’t warned Margaret Qualley not to date Pete Davidson, despite a made-up tabloid report. Gossip Cop can debunk the story. There’s no truth to it.

Although Davidson and Qualley haven’t confirmed their romance, the two were spotted holding hands in Italy last week during the Venice Film Festival, and it’s believed they’ve been seeing each other for a couple of months. Life & Style has now decided to drag the Saturday Night Live star’s ex-fiancee into the situation. A bogus headline in the latest issue of the magazine reads, “Ariana Warns Margaret: Pete’s Bad News!”

An alleged insider tells the outlet, “Ariana felt it was her responsibility as a feminist, of course, to warn Margaret about what she was getting herself into. She got word to Margaret through a mutual pal, that Pete’s an immature stoner who’d make fun of her on SNL after she eventually dumped him, too.” The suspicious source then acknowledges that Grande has “never met Pete’s girlfriend, but thought she should pass along her two cents before it gets serious.”

Naturally, the unreliable tabloid isn’t able to identify Grande and Qualley’s “mutual pal” who supposedly issued the warning on the singer’s behalf. That’s because this mutual friend doesn’t seem to exist. Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to the situation, who assures us Grande hasn’t interfered in Davidson’s new romance.

It’s worth noting, Grande sent a message to her fans asking that they be “gentler” with Davidson following their split last year. In response to the online bullying the SNL star was receiving, Grande said, “I really don’t endorse anything but forgiveness and positivity. i care deeply about pete and his health.” She added, “I will always have irrevocable love for him and if you’ve gotten any other impression from my recent work, you might have missed the point.” Considering that the singer took to social media to ask her fans not to bad-mouth her ex, it seems highly unlikely she’s doing it herself.

It must also be mentioned, Life & Style published inaccurate stories about Grande and Davidson when they were still together. Shortly after the two stars got engaged last year, the tabloid falsely claimed Grande and Davidson planned on having a baby together. The pop star herself shot down the false rumor.

Gossip Cop also busted the magazine earlier this year for making up a story about Grande feuding with Taylor Swift. There’s no animosity between the two singers, despite the magazine’s insistence on creating drama. This latest article roping Grande into Davidson and Qualley’s relationship is more nonsense.
