Ariana Grande & Pete Davidson Breakup: Soon to Get Even Uglier?!

by at .

When the world learned that Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson were engaged, fans were immediately skeptical of the pairing.

But even those who predicted that Pete and Ariana would break up had little idea that the relationship would end so quickly -- or flameout so dramatically.

If you've been keeping up with the situation, then you're probably aware that things got ugly between the exes in a major way last week.

It all started when Davidson joked about the breakup during a promo for this week's episode of Saturday Night Live.

Ariana immediately clapped back on social media, tweeting:

"For somebody who claims to hate relevancy u sure love clinging to it huh."

In Bed! Together!

Grande then released a song in which she addressed the breakup -- a single that she released just 30 minutes before SNL aired.

Now, that's some grade-A shade-throwing, and it was widely expected that the situation would deteriorate from there.

But thankfully, it seems Pete and Ariana have both reached the decision to call a cease-fire.

“They have no contact now and she keeps moving forward,” a source close to the situation tells People magazine.

“She seems very happy and positive. She isn’t talking about dating and is instead focused on work and herself."

As for Davidson, the insider says the young comic is taking it all in stride.

“Pete’s unfazed,” the source tells People.

“It’s true they’re not in agreement about things after the breakup.

"A lot of people thought he was the wild card in the relationship, but that’s not true. Pete has and will always joke about his life, with or without her.”

Indeed, Ari has been quite outspoken on the situation, addressing the breakup directly in the lyrics "Thank U, Next":

“Plus I met someone else / We havin’ better discussions / I know they say I move on too fast / But this one gon’ last / ‘Cause her name is Ari / And I’m so good with that.”

The same night the song was released, Davidson spoke candidly about the split during the "Weekend Update" segment of SNL:

"The last thing I will say is I know some of you are curious about the breakup, but the truth is it’s nobody’s business, and sometimes things just don’t work out, and that’s okay,” he said.

“She’s a wonderful, strong person, and I genuinely wish her all the happiness in the world.”

Of course, Davidson's plea for privacy and compassion came on the heels of a joke about a wounded war veteran, but that's a discussion for another time.
