Ariana Grande Denies Cheating on Mac Miller with Now-Fiancé Pete Davidson
We’re less than 10 days away from the release of Ariana Grande‘s fourth studio album, Sweetener. August 17th can’t come fast enough! That means Ari should be having the time of her life right about now, right? Well, yes… but, apparently, she’s not.
Unfortunately, the 25-year-old singer is being forced to deal with haters across social media, especially on Instagram. Some are attacking her music; some are attacking her looks; others, like the one we’re talking about today, are calling out how quickly she jumped from her longtime relationship with Mac Miller to a relationship (and engagement!) with Pete Davidson.
“Ari cheated on maccccccc,” IG user @agxchanel claimed.
Given the Nickelodeon alum’s history of clapping back at trolls, she quickly shut down the rumor. “@agxchanel i didn’t but go off,” she responded. “can u like …. go stan someone else ? ur boring.”
When news of Ari’s relationship with Pete first surfaced, cheating rumors weren’t far behind. According to Hollywood Life, at the time, Mac felt “like he put everything into their relationship, and if Ariana was cheating on him, then it’s like a serious slap in the face.”
If you’ve been paying close attention, this was far from the first time the “The Light is Coming” crooner was accused of infidelity. In early July, one of Ari’s exes, Big Sean, was hacked… and the hacker tweeted, “ariana grande been cheating on pete with me this whole time that p*ssy a1.”
Years prior — five years, to be more precise — another one of Ari’s former longtime boos, Jai Brooks, outright accused her of being unfaithful… with Nathan Sykes! In possibly the longest rant ever on Twitter, the Janoskians guy revealed to the world, “Yes I was cheated on. Yes it does suck. Yes I was left for another man.”
He continues, “It has been tough for me, but I’m finally ready to move on. Once you are cheated on, you should never go back and I did because I wasn’t ready to give up on love and something that was everything to me… Nathan may be a top bloke or a sweet person, but what he did was just completely wrong. He interfered with my life and did not respect my relationship, his actions caused me to not be able to sleep at night and not see the world as a beautiful place.”
Ariana responded to the tweets, saying, “Woke up this morning in complete and utter shock… I guess I shouldn’t be so surprised. You said to me if I didn’t come back to you, you’d make me look bad to the entire world… I’m no longer afraid of you or your lies anymore.”
“Girls… RESPECT YOURSELVES,” she continued. “Keep your head held high and speak only kind words. Know your truth… no one can ever take that away from you. It’s always ok to defend yourself. My fans know what kind of person I am. Never let any man discredit u or the values you were raised with. I’m finally happy. Words can’t hurt me anymore.”
