The couple decided to end their relationship after just eight months of dating.
Pop diva Ariana Grande and rapper, Big Sean, have parted ways after eight months of dating, an exclusive report from US Weekly revealed.
The representatives of both Ariana and Sean issued a joint statement which confirmed the split of the couple. The statement further indicated that both still care for each other and will remain close friends, but they require a little privacy at this time.
“They both deeply care for each other and remain close friends,” their representative told the US Weekly. “We kindly ask that the media respect their wish for privacy regarding this personal matter at this time.”
It was also confirmed that Ariana and Big Sean ended their relationship way before they publically announced their breakup. An insider source also revealed the reason for this breakup. “They made the decision to part ways because their conflicting touring schedules would keep them apart over the next year.”
The 21-year old Ariana and 27-year old Big Sean may not have too much time to spend together, but certainly they had lots of love for each other. On April 4, Big Sean tweeted, “Just know I love and I care for ya.” The Love ME Harder signer replied, “Love u babes the most. You just can’t imagine.”
The news about the relationship of Ariana and Big Sean started to come when they were spotted getting close at the MTV Video Music Awards in the August of the last year. Back in October 2014, the couple confirmed they have been dating each other for a while. Since then, both have made a number of onstage appearances and were seen on the red carpet of 2015 Grammys as well.
