Ariana Grande & Big Sean: Back Together?!
Thank u, back?
Ariana Grande shocked us all this week when she was photographed with none other than her ex-boyfriend Big Sean!
A source told E! News that the 7 Rings singer was snapped on Wednesday sitting in the front passenger’s seat with her dog in her lap while the 30-year-old rapper was in the driver’s seat.
The two reportedly left a Los Angeles recording studio together, where Sean met up with the Grammy-winner after she had been working there for several hours.
It’s still unclear what caused their reunion, but all that matters is that the former couple is clearly on good terms.
As fans know, the two broke up back in April of 2015 following almost nine months of dating.
“They both care deeply 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 separation statement read.
The reason behind their breakup was blamed on busy schedules.
“They made the decision to part ways because their conflicting touring schedules would keep them apart over the next year,” the source said.
A second source did reiterate that the two remained friendly.
“Ariana and Big Sean have had a great relationship and they are still very close friends and will remain in each other’s lives,” the insider revealed.
“It hasn’t been easy though with both of their busy schedules lately and they know it’s going to get even harder in the next few months.
“This was really difficult for them to publicly call it quits, but they thought it would be better this way, so people know there is no bad blood between them at all,” concluded the source.
Earlier this year, Grande confirmed their friendly breakup when calling out the artist in her girl power themed music video for Thank u, Next.
“Thought I’d end up with Sean, But he wasn’t a match,” she sings in reference to him.
“I had sent [the song] to Sean and he loved it. He loved it,” Grande revealed in an interview on the Zach Sang Show.
“It was very funny. He was like, ‘D–n, I’m the first one, huh?’ And I was like, ‘I mean, you know, I went kind of in order.’ He was very supportive, he loved it.”
She also made subtle hints at the I Don’t F–k with You rapper in her version of the “burn book” from the movie Mean Girls, writing, “so cute so sweet” on a page dedicated to him.
She also added a flirty message, “(could still get it).”
And now we are convinced she surely is.
It’s no secret that Ari has had a tough year, (personally definitely not professionally) starting with the shocking loss of her other famous ex-boyfriend and rapper Mac Miller who passed away after an accidental drug overdose.
She also broke off an engagement with comedian Pete Davidson due to tension after losing Mac.
Like her own lines suggest, “Been through some bad sh-t, I should be a sad bitch, who woulda thought it turn me to a savage?”
When she and Davidson split last October, Big Sean also reportedly cut ties from his girlfriend at the time, Jhene Aiko.
So now they’re both single and hanging out alone?! I don’t know about you, but I think Ari and Sean are totally making a comeback.
