No one is shocked but jaws definitely dropped yesterday afternoon when TMZ broke the news that Pete Davidson and Ariana Grande had split. It was not just that they had called off their four-month engagement but they were over for good. The signs were all there: first, Ariana's ex, Mac Miller passed away and of course, internet trolls were quick to blame her. It was not her fault she did not want to be with an addict anymore and just wanted to find happiness, something she seemingly found with quirky Davidson. The moment Miller died, it was just obvious she would need to take time for herself and this would mean being single and collecting her thoughts. How can you be fully immersed in wedding planning when someone you loved for two years has passed in a super tragic way? Then, Davidson covered up one of his first Ariana neck tattoos (her bunny ears) with a heart and her initials. Was this a way of saying she would always have a heart? We do not know.
The bottom line is we do not doubt they got swept away in love and did truly care for one another but something tragic happened to put the brakes on the relationship and if they are meant to be, they will find a way back to each other when the time is right. This is very much the same for Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez. He seems so heartbroken since she chose to seek mental help and it makes everyone wonder how long his new marriage will last. Well, it must have stung like a million bees when Justin said his new wife was the love of his life after all he had been through with Selena, just saying. Our thoughts are with all the couples to find peace and happiness.
