Big Sean broke up with his girlfriend and Ariana Grande is probably no longer bored. 

Thanks to impeccable timing, music video hints, and late night drives the former couple is on our radar once again.

The 30-year-old rapper split from his girlfriend, Jhene Aiko, just months prior to reuniting with his ex-lover, Ari. 

An insider told Us Weekly the couple “broke up in mid-December” and things didn’t go smoothly. 

“I wouldn’t say it was amicable,” the source explained. “But now they are civil towards each other.”

The two suggested their newfound love back in 2016 when Jhene, 30, filed for divorce from her then-husband and music producer, Dot da Genius, after lots of flirting went down with Sean on the collab album, Twenty88

As soon as the divorce was finalized, her relationship with Sean immediately took off.

Their love spanned over three inseparable years but came to an end after the not so happy holidays. 

But suspiciously, that romance died right around the same time as Ari called off her engagement with comedian Pete Davidson back in October.

And now Sean and Ari are stirring the dating rumor pot. And we are so here for it. 

The “thank u, next” singer dated Big Sean for 8 months before his involvement with Jhene began, though the couple called in quits officially in October 2015 due to conflicting schedules. 

“They both care deeply 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,” their joint statement read.

The two “remained very close friends” and continued to stay “in each other’s lives,” according to an insider.

Which is why it did not come as a huge surprise when the former flames were spotted hanging out on February 27.

A source told E! that the lovebirds were snapped leaving a Los Angeles recording studio together. The “7 Rings” singer was sitting in the front passenger’s seat with her dog in her lap while the rapper was driving.

Sean reportedly met up with Ari after she had been working there for several hours before.  

So could the two still be getting it?! 

It’s definitely likely. Especially after Ari called out her ex-beau in her music video for “thank u, next” where she wrote “(could still get it)” on a page from a “burn book” prop dedicated to him. 

Sean also showed off his continuing affection for the Grammy-winner after giving a standing ovation during her tribute performance at Aretha Franklin’s funeral service back in August.

And now that the “Mercy” rapper and Nickelodeon alum are both single, we find it very possible that they will give their relationship another go. 

I mean, all of the hard evidence is there. Though confirmation is regrettably not (yet).
