June 11, 2018
Over the past few years,
has had her fair share of romances. From Ariana Grande Big Sean to Jai Brooks (twice), we’ve been along for the roller coaster that is the 24-year-old’s love life! But when you really think about it, it’s tough to keep track of every single person the singer has rumored to be dating. Because when you’re as famous as Ariana, dating rumors come out daily!
The “No Tears Left to Cry” singer was in a relationship with rapper
Mac Miller for almost two years, but the pair decided to call it quits earlier this week. But who was she romancing before the 26-year-old? Keep reading…

Graham Phillips first met in 2008 when they starred in 13 the musical on Broadway. They were both only young teenagers when they took over the stage, and they quickly formed a tight friendship, that eventually turned into a relationship.
The two shared a kiss and decided to begin dating each other exclusively. The couple dated in 2009 and broke up amicably in 2011. They even have reunited a few times since because the cast is still friends!
13 is also where Ari and Elizabeth Gillies met for the first time.

After Ariana and Graham called it quits, she began dating a
Victorious backup dancer named Jordan Viscomi. The two often worked together on set and eventually began a relationship in late 2011.
Allegedly Jordan was only dating the "Dangerous Woman" singer to further his own career and they eventually had a messy breakup in 2012. In a
Twitlonger, Ariana mentioned that she was "heartbroken over my back up dancer" but that she was okay.

We have to admit that we were definitely part of the group of people that hoped that these two
Victorious stars would eventually get together. Although Beck and Cat were never an item on the show, during the episode "A Film By Dale Squires," the two characters share a smooch while working on a movie project.
Fans immediately began to think that the kiss looked a little too good and instead of believing it's because they're great actors, they began to wonder if the two were dating IRL. The "Side to Side" singer denied a relationship but
DID say that Avan is a "good kisser."

Jai Brooks was Ari's first high-profile boyfriend and we saw the whole relationship from beginning to end. It all started when Jai tweeted at the singer to get attention, which ended with them actually getting together in 2012. They had a long-distance relationship which contributed to them breaking up in 2013.
A few months after their split, the
Janoskians member went on a Twitter spree accusing Ari of cheating on him. Obviously the Nickelodeon alum denied everything and even said that Jai threatened her if she didn't come back to him. The two must have come to an understanding because a year later they got back together only to break up again a few months later.

relationship with Nathan Sykes was just as high profile because apparently he is the person that she cheated on Jai with. The two singers first met when they worked together on the song "Almost Is Never Enough" for Nathan's solo album, Unfinished Business. They began dating shortly after and their performances were approximately 100 times cuter because of it.
They were together for about five months in 2013 before
calling it quits, but they remained somewhat friendly. In 2015, the former member of The Wanted released music that was about his former flame.

When Ari posted this picture, Beliebers everywhere FREAKED out and assumed the Biebs found a new GF. Ari denied the rumors, however, and even admitted that she didn't want to post the pic to begin with! So while these celebrities are often linked as a couple, it appears that it was only just speculation.

Big Sean became friends in 2014 when they collaborated on "Right There" for the brunette beauty's album, Yours Truly. It didn't take long for fans to notice that the two were acting like they were more than friends, and a few months later their relationship went public when they were spotted on a date.
They made their official public couple debut at the 57th Grammy Awards in 2015 and made our hearts melt. During their time together the couple worked together on multiple tunes together like "Problem" and "Best Mistake." They
broke up later that year, however, after eight months of dating.

This relationship pretty much flew under the radar, but that's probably because it was overshadowed by
Donutgate, where Ari was caught licking, but not buying, some sweet treats. Just days before the now-infamous doughnut situation happened, videos surfaced of the singer kissing Ricky Alvarez who, at the time, was one of her backup dancers.
Compared to her other relationships, this one remained pretty much on the DL. Ari and Ricky coupled up at one Hollywood event, but that's the only time they went public with their love because they
split just a few months later.

This breakup is still difficult to write about. We first heard rumors about the "No Tears Left to Cry" singer dating
Mac Miller back in 2013 when they collaborated on "The Way," but they denied the rumors. Fast forward three years, however, and the two decided to give a romance a go.
Although the two musicians kept their relaysh pretty private, it was obvious that they were so in love. This is why we were so shocked to hear that after almost two full years of dating they couple was
no longer together. We're super bummed to hear about this split, but Ariana took to Instagram and confirmed that they will love each other forever. BRB, crying.

Just two weeks after news surfaced that Ariana and Mac broke up, we were hit with the news that was dating
Saturday Night Live comedian Pete Davidson. Although a People source said their relationships was only "casual" mere weeks ago, we've since learned that their relationship is ANYTHING BUT CASUAL!
That's right, ladies and gents! After teasing fans about their relationship on social media for several weeks
and getting LOTS of tattoos, it appears Ariana and Pete are now not only dating, but ENGAGED TO BE MARRIED. Uh... WHAT?! We can't lie... we're pretty shook by this news, but once the initial shock passes, we're sure we'll be super happy and excited for this fresh — and we mean FRESH — new couple.
