Who Is Ariana Grande’s Rumored Love Interest Mikey Foster and What Is His Net Worth?
Ariana Grande is reportedly back in the dating game, people.
After splitting from her ex-fiancé, Pete Davidson, the “Thank U, Next” singer seemingly took a break from relationships. But now, nearly a year later, she’s ready to move on — and she might be doing it with Mikey Foster.
So, who is this Mikey Foster, and what is his net worth? Let’s just say he’s a pretty talented person, and they go way back.
Foster is part of an impressive group
Foster is one-half of the pop group, Social House. Hailing from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, he and Charles “Scootie” Anderson teamed up after moving to Los Angeles. They moved into a place in Sherman Oaks, where they named their group after the house’s WiFi password.
According to Billboard, they began writing and producing music for several artists, including Jennifer Lopez, and Lil Yachty. They’ve known Grande as early as 2015 when they worked on her Christmas & Chill EP. But that’s not the only time they’ve teamed up. Social House also produced Grande’s hits “Thank U, Next,” and “7 Rings.”
So, obviously, Foster works hard. While his net worth is unclear, it seems almost certain that he’s got some coins in the bank.
Foster has a part in Grande’s new video
So, these two collaborated on Grande’s new song “Boyfriend,” which dropped on Aug. 1. The video for the song is so hot and steamy that fans immediately decided that there’s really something going on between Grande and Foster.
An Aug. 3 report from The Blast only supports those claims. An insider told the outlet that their relationship has gone from professional to romantic in the past few months. “We’re told the two stars have been seriously enjoying each other’s company, and have quietly been elevating their relationship,” the report reads. “However, they are far from boyfriend/girlfriend … and are apparently just feeling things out.”
So they might not be official yet. But the rumored relationship wouldn’t be surprising, considering Foster’s heartfelt tribute to Grande on her birthday in June.
“Ur one of the most incredible people the universe has to offer. I hope this year offers u nothing but the joy u deserve. Love u. happy birthday 💙,” he wrote in the caption of a baby photo of the singer. In response, Grande commented, “love u sooooooo much,” with a series of emojis.
Grande’s explanation of “Boyfriend” seems telling
The “Moonlight” crooner shared her take on the song via Twitter that could be a hint at the current state of her love life.
“I feel like this song captures a common theme in the lives of so many people i know!” she tweeted. “People want to feel love but don’t want to define their relationship & have trouble fully committing or trusting or allowing themselves to fully love someone. Even tho they want to.”
Fans might remember how Grande in the spring of 2018 moved on from Mac Miller and began dating Pete Davidson. What followed were a bunch of ill-advised couples tattoos and a whirlwind engagement. But she and Davidson split later that year after Miller died from an overdose, with sources telling TMZ that Grande realized “she couldn’t be fully invested in her relationship with Pete, and she had rushed into a looming marriage way too fast by getting engaged.”
Grande later called the engagement an “amazing distraction” in an interview with Vogue. “It was frivolous and fun and insane and highly unrealistic, and I loved him, and I didn’t know him,” she told the magazine.
So, is she ready to “feel love” but still having trouble “fully committing or trusting and allowing [herself] to full love someone” even if she wants to? Or are we just reading into this too much?
Either way, we hope that, when she’s ready (if she’s not already), she finds someone amazing. Who knows — maybe she already has.
