Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson have reportedly broken up after a four-month engagement. TMZ reports the couple is on good terms but they’re not together romantically anymore. So, what happened? Why did Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson break up?

Did Pete’s insecurities play a role?

Apparently, Pete didn’t think he and Ariana’s relationship would last. He often joked about how he didn’t believe a beautiful pop star like Ariana Grande would marry him. He made this joke during a Saturday Night Live comedy sketch:

No one could believe it, and I can’t believe it. And I get it. She’s the No. 1 pop star in the world, and I’m that guy from SNL that everyone thinks is in desperate need of more blood. You know when that whole city pretended that kid was Batman because he was sick? That’s what this feels like.

 Pete predicted the breakup

Strangely enough, Pete seemed to predict things were about to go south between him and Ariana. The comedian joked about getting a prenuptial agreement and about the possibility of the couple not making it.

You know, I don’t even get royalties for that ‘Pete Davidson’ song? Like, if we break up, and we won’t—we will—but we won’t. I’m kidding. But like in 10 years if God forbid that ever happened, there will be a song called ‘Pete Davidson’ like playing in speakers at K-Mart and I’ll be working there.

Insiders say Pete and Ariana’s romance was rushed

If you thought Ariana and Pete’s whirlwind romance was too much, you’re not the only one. Some people close to the former couple say they moved way too fast. “It was way too much too soon,” a source told People. “It’s not shocking to anyone.” According to reports, Ariana and Pete came to an agreement about the future of their relationship. TMZ reports the decision to split up was mutual.

News that Pete and Ariana were dating first surfaced around May 21, 2018. People reports this was just two weeks after Ariana broke up the late rapper Mac Miller and one week after Pete confirmed his he had broken up with actress Cazzie David.

 A troubled personal life

Ariana has experienced two stressful events over the last couple of weeks. Before the split, the singer was caught in the middle of a scandal after fans claimed a pastor (Bishop Charles H. Ellis III) at Aretha Franklin’s funeral touched Ariana inappropriately. Just days later, Ariana’s former boyfriend, Mac Miller died after an apparent drug overdose. Unfortunately, the star had to deal with Twitter trolls who blamed her for the rapper’s death. After dealing with these events, Ariana told her followers she was tired and wanted to have “just one OK day.” She later decided to take a break from media appearances.

Could this be why Pete and Ariana broke up?

It’s possible Pete’s apparent insecurities and the stress Ariana has experienced over the past couple of weeks could have contributed to the break up. Will the couple get back together? Only time will tell if Pete and Ariana will follow the path of G-Eazy and Halsey and reunite sometime in the future.
