It appears that singer and former Disney star Ariana Grande and rapper Big Sean are moving beyond the friendship stage. The 21-year-old and Big Sean are apparently dating.
A source claims that they have been friends since they made the song (“Problem”) together, and have been spending more time together and recently have been getting very close. Ariana actually opened up about her special bond to Big Sean and their collaboration on her second album when she spoke to Ryan Seacrest last month.
One would say that the friendship seems to have blossomed into a romance.
The two were spotted leaving a late showing of “The Purge” at the Grove in Los Angeles and a source said they were kissing during the movie and left before it was over.
Ariana is going through a tough time, mourning the loss of her beloved grandfather. Ariana posted a cryptic Tweet that the source said was aimed at Jai, who allegedly wasn’t there for her when she needed him to be.
“You learn a lot about love, life & the people around you during a time of crisis. July was painful for many reasons but of all the personal loss I suffered last month, the loss of my grandfather, a true gentleman, was the only one that truly mattered,” she wrote.
Ariana and Jai, a member of the Australian YouTube comedy and prank group The Janoskians, first started dating in August 2012.
The pair allegedly split in July last year and then rekindled their romance in May, when they were spotted enjoying a passionate embrace backstage at the iHeartRadio Awards in Los Angeles. Big Sean was engaged to Glee star Naya Rivera but they also split up in April.
