There's nothing quite like young love. It's all-consuming, and it's easy to feel like it'll last forever. Now take the craziness of falling head-over-heels in love with someone, and imagine having to deal with that in the spotlight as a celebrity. It can be intense, overwhelming, and you're also dealing with a complete lack of privacy.
Whenever two celebrities begin dating, it's hard for them to keep anything out of the tabloids. For example, when Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson started a few months back– the internet went berserk. What fueled the fire was that the two of them were fairly open about their relationship, often posting about each other on social media. And how could we forget, Grande even added a track to her album Sweetener called "Pete Davidson."
People often wondered what was going on with their business and their relationship. But alas, their whirlwind romance turned engagement didn't last. In October 2018, the pair split.
Since their break up, it hasn't exactly been smooth sailing.It's being reported that Davidson has blocked Grande across all social media platforms in the best interest of his mental health.
The famous pair had only been together for a couple of months.However, in those few months, they moved fast. They shared tattoos with meanings for one another and were engaged in the blink of an eye.
When you know, you know.Despite the fact that the pair seemed blissfully in love, they split in October. Predictably (because the internet is wild), Davidson received hate from Grande's fans.
He deleted Instagram for a bit, but then returned with a message to his fans.
Davidson has been open about his journey with mental health."To all those holding me down and seeing this for what it is - I see you and I love you," Davidson wrote.
In an Instagram story that has since been deleted, Grande responded to Davidson's Instagram post.The pop star addressed her fans directly and asked everyone to be "gentler" with one another.
Grande has been vocal about her support of Davidson and love for him, post-breakup.In her most recent hit, "Thank U, Next," Grande sings, "Even almost got married and for Pete, I'm so thankful."
Grande pointed out that if anyone thought she felt poorly toward Davidson, they've misinterpreted her."...so please let whatever point you’re trying to make go. I will always have irrevocable love for him and if you’ve gotten any other impression from my recent work, you might have missed the point," she posted.
Sometimes it's necessary and healthy to make concrete boundaries.A source reported that Davidson blocked his ex-fiancée, and "is trying to distance himself from her narrative for his health." It's always important to make sure you take the steps to ensure that your mental health comes first.
On Twitter, Grande DM'd a fan explaining her side of it.The fan then tweeted out the conversation, to which Grande responded with a black heart emoji.
The fan prefaced the tweet, saying, "There's nothing left to say."
