Ariana Grande and Big Sean have called it quits after an eight-month relationship. “They both deeply care for each other and remain close friends. We kindly ask that the media respect their wish for privacy regarding this personal matter at this time,” the former couple’s representative told Us Weekly. According to reports, the couple ended their relationship several weeks ago. While their representatives would not reveal why the couple split, their rigorous touring schedules were a huge part of the reason.
A fake tweet circulated the Internet recently, which was supposed to have been written by Big Sean. The tweet was directed at Justin Bieber, after the pop singer got a little too “touchy feely” with Ariana Grande onstage. The rapper vehemently denied he ever sent the tweet, and it was proven the tweet was not posted by Sean. The rapper did however send a tweet to Ariana Grande earlier this month stating, “just know I love u and care for ya.” Grande and Sean began dating in 2014, after the rapper broke off his engagement to singer-actress Naya Rivera.
The rapper has a performance tomorrow in Bloomington (IN), and his next show is scheduled on April 22nd in Sayreville (NJ). Sean will also travel to Richmond (VA) on April 30th, State College (PA) on May 1st, Urbana (IL) on May 2nd, Albany (NY) on May 6th, Salt Lake City (UT) on May 15th, Las Vegas (NV) on May 16th, Kansas City (MO) onMay 21st, Milwaukee (WI) on May 23rd, Shakopee (MN) on May 24th, and New York (NY) on June 7th. Sean will then travel overseas for the remaining dates on his tour. The rapper has dates scheduled in Germany, Belgium, Poland, Denmark, United Kingdom, and a final show on July 7th in Montpellier (France).
Next month, Grande will be in Paris (France) on the 14th. Her overseas tour dates include stops in Germany, Sweden, Norway, Italy, the Netherlands, United Kingdom, Belgium, and a final date in Spain on June 16th. The pop singer will return to the United States on July 16th for a show in Tampa (FL). Her North America dates include performances in North Carolina, Kentucky, New York, and more. Grande’s tour is expected to wrap on September 4th in Portland (OR).
