In the wake of news that Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson have broken up, fans are understandably consumed with curiosity.
What could have caused such a seemingly intense romance to flame out?
Sources close to the couple say the timing just wasn’t right, but it’s not hard to see why that explanation doesn’t sit well with the public.
After all, Grande and Davidson were engaged; they laid on the PDA at every opportunity, and they seemed to be madly in love.
From the outside, it looks as though some sort of precipitous event must have preceded the breakup.
And now, a new round of reports has Davidson accused of some truly monstrous behavior …
A Surprise Romance
Pete and Ariana’s relationship came as a surprise even to those who knew the former couple best.
Part of the reason for this was that both parties had recently gotten out of very serious longterm relationships.
Pete and Cazzie
Pete was with Cazzie David, who has made a point of refraining from offering direct comment on her ex’s tumultuous relationship with Grande.
Ariana and Mac
Ariana was with rapper Mac Miller, whom she dated for over two years just prior to her relationship with Pete.
A Tragic Turn of Events
Sadly, Miller passed away from an apparent drug overdose last month.
A Shocking Loss
Miller had struggled with addiction for years, and Grande cited his inability or unwillingness to help himself as one of the causes of their split.
