Ariana Grande and Big Sean have ended their relationship.
The former couple began dating late 2014 and have parted ways after 8 months together. The pair confirmed the news in a joint statement to the media.
“They both deeply care for each other and remain close friends,” read the statement from their reps.
The statement continues by asking for privacy, “We kindly ask that the media respect their wish for privacy regarding this personal matter at this time.”
An insider tells Us Weekly, the split was “amicable” and happened a few weeks ago.
So why did they split after approaching a year together, spending so much time together, and seeming so happy together? A source close to the former couple is blaming their busy work schedules: “They made the decision to part ways because their conflicting touring schedules would keep them apart over the next year.”
