Ariana Grande shares powerful message about anxiety amid Pete Davidson split
While we can't exactly call Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson star crossed lovers, it's evident that the young couple faced their fair share of adversity during their five months together.
Last Sunday, TMZ reported that Grande and Davidson had called off their engagement, with sources saying that the couple believed that it "simply was not the right time for their relationship to take off". While the pair is no longer romantically involved, they allegedly "still have love for each other."
Now, the pop-singer has vowed not to let anxiety ruin things for her in a poignant Instagram Story. Grande is due to perform in NBC's Wicked special on October 29th and is currently in daily rehearsals. However, in one of her first social media posts since rumours of the split broke, Grande shared how her anxieties were getting in the way of preparing for her impending performance, despite the fact that she wanted to sing her "heart out".
"Can't believe I almost let my anxiety ruin this for me today!!! Not today satan!" she wrote on a selfie of herself wearing green lipstick. "Not tomorrow or the next day either not no more you [sic] can suck my big green d*ck [...] finna sing my heart out and be a big walking vessel of love bye."
Ahead of her performance in A Very Wicked Halloween: Celebrating 15 Years on Broadway, the 25-year-old also tweeted a picture of her script. Based on the character who sings that particular song in the original film it looks like Grande is going to portraying Elphaba.
"Honored to be included in this celebration of 15 years of my favorite musical of all time. Wouldn’t miss it for the whole universe," she captioned the snap.
In regards to the singer's purported split from the Saturday Night Live cast member, TMZ have since claimed that Grande has already given her $100,000 engagement ring back to Davidson. There was allegedly never any discussion of her keeping the 3.03 carat diamond, with a source saying "He bought it in contemplation of marriage, and she was quick to fork it over."
Grande and Davidson have been one of the most talked about couples of 2018, what with their whirlwind romance coming soon after the Sweetener singer's split from the late Mac Miller.
The pair were first spotted together in May, and from there, their PDA only intensified; they got matching tattoos, Grande devoted a track to the comedian on her most recent album, and rumours of a possible engagement began to swirl mid-June - something that was confirmed by Davidson during an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
Earlier this month, eagle-eyed fans noticed that Davidson had seemingly covered up his Dangerous Woman-inspired tattoo.
During a recent performance on Saturday Night Live, an audience member screenshotted a picture where it looks like Davidson had covered up the set of bunny ears along his hairline with a heart.
Later in the weekend, Davidson was papped with the tattoo, but an "A" had been added next to the new design.
As of now, neither Grande nor Davidson have publicly confirmed their breakup.
