The pair decided to end their engagement over the weekend, TMZ reports.
“It was way too much too soon,” a Grande source said. “It’s not shocking to anyone.”
Sources close to the couple said that the decision to split was a mutual choice, as both the “God Is a Woman” singer, 25, and the Saturday Night Live star, 24, felt the timing wasn’t right.
As of Sunday evening, Grande had not deleted photos and videos of Davidson from her social media accounts yet, but Davidson’s accounts were no longer active.
The cause of the split is not yet know, the couple’s split comes after Grande has endured a difficult few weeks as she came to terms with the loss of former boyfriend Mac Miller, who died from an apparent drug overdose on Sept. 7, PEOPLE reports. After venting about her emotional exhaustion to her Twitter followers, the star took some much-needed time off.
“Given the events of the past couple of years, Ariana is going to take some much needed time to heal and mend,” her team said. “She will be staying close to home and using this period to spend time with her loved ones and work on new music without deadline. She thanks her fans for their understanding.”
Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson started dating in May 2018. The news of their pairing in May came just two weeks after Grande reportedly split from rapper Miller and one week after Davidson confirmed his breakup from actress Cazzie David, whom he’d dated for a year.
At the time, a source said that Grande and Davidson — who have known each other since at least 2016, when she was a musical guest on SNL — “just started” dating.
“Ariana and Mac officially broke up right after Coachella weekend, but they ultimately struggled for a long time with their relationship, and it was basically over last year,” the source said.
