Singer Ariana Grande and rapper Big Sean have ended their relationship after eight months of dating. The couple have split, their representatives confirmed, reported Us magazine.
“They both deeply care for each other and remain close friends. We kindly ask that the media respect their wish for privacy regarding this personal matter at this time,” their representatives said in a joint statement. Insiders close to the two said they very quietly and amicably ended their relationship a few weeks ago.
“They made the decision to part ways because their conflicting touring schedules would keep them apart over the next year,” said a source. The Love Me Harder singer, 21, and the Control rapper, 27, first confirmed they were a couple in October 2014.
In the months since, the duo have appeared together onstage at various concerts and on the red carpet at the 2015 Grammy Awards. They also often refer each other on social media.
