One of the sweetest, gushiest celebrity couples has called it quits. Ariana Grande, 21, and Big Sean, 27, recently broke up after eight months of dating.
“They both deeply care for each other and remain close friends,” said their reps in a joint statement. “We kindly ask that the media respect their wish for privacy regarding this personal matter at this time.”
But what was really behind the breakup? Well, there are several theories.
Us Weekly reports the couple mutually broke up a few weeks ago.
“They made the decision to part ways because their conflicting touring schedules would keep them apart over the next year,” a source told the magazine.
Others are saying it came down to a lack of trust, which is also why Big Sean’s relationship with Naya Rivera ended.
“A lot of the problems between Ariana and Sean came down to trust. At the end of the day, they didn’t really trust each other,” a source told HollywoodLife.com. “He is very smooth and Ariana saw how girls responded to him, basically throwing themselves at him.”
When Big Sean called off the wedding to his ex, Rivera, reports said it was due to her jealousy and anger, but maybe her jealousy was well founded.
“He never seemed to push them away as quickly as Ariana would have liked,” the source said. “Plus, there were a number of times that Ariana saw suspicious texts on Sean’s phone. He always had an excuse, but these things add up.”
The source adds Big Sean can be jealous too and was not happy about Justin Bieber dancing with Grande on stage.
“Justin getting all up in Ariana’s business didn’t help matters at all. Sean and Ariana did a lot of PR to snuff out the reports of trouble because of Justin and Ariana’s performance,” said the source. “But Sean did not like it. He is not cool with another man grinding up on his girl even if it’s for a performance.”
If jealousy is what tore them apart then it’s probably a good thing they broke up before heading off on their respective tours where they are bound to get a lot of attention. Or maybe this is a publicity stunt to get extra coverage of their upcoming projects (Grande is also filming Scream Queens with co-star Lea Michele). Time will tell!
