There’s been so much buzz around Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson’s whirlwind romance and engagement. They were with each other for about a month before they got engaged. Pete and Ariana each announced breakups with longterm partners right before they went public. There’s speculation that the 93k engagement ring Pete gave Ariana was actually intended for his girlfriend of two years, Cazzie David. The timeline given by the jeweler points to the fact that it was intended for Ariana all along, but only if Pete was truly split with Cazzie. It turns out that Pete and Cazzie were “on a break,” according to sources who spoke with TMZ. Supposedly she’s ok with the outcome though, which makes it sound like she’s the one who talked to TMZ. That’s me after a breakup. “Everything’s fine! Screw my ex.”
Sources close to the newly engaged couple say Pete and his ex-gf, Cazzie David, were “on a break” in early May — but not necessarily broken up for good — when his relationship with Ariana sparked. But they hit if off, and it quickly became clear Pete was serious about moving on with Ariana.
The good news — it seems all parties involved are happy with the end result. As we reported, Cazzie’s not upset or dwelling on her ex’s quick rebound. Hey, if it’s good enough for Ross and Rachel.
Sidenote: The “on a break” line from Ross and Rachel’s relationship on Friends was a Jeopardy question last week. Ross used that as an excuse for why he cheated on Rachel. (More on that in the Friends wiki.) That’s an example of the danger of taking a break on a relationship, as is the way Pete moved on so quickly. Some guys just can’t stand to be alone, but given how into it Pete and Ariana are maybe it’s for the best. Speaking of that, Ariana and Pete are still gushing about each other on Instagram, where Pete called their engagement “better than a dream.” Dreams end! I hope they manage to transition into a more sustainable relationship, but signs point to a crash and burn. We’ll see though. Pete and Ariana became a meme last week, with people making jokes about Ariana’s new single with Nicki Minaj, Bed, as it applied to Pete.
These two snapchatted a video of themselves listening to Bed, face filters and all. Plus Ariana posted a message to IG stories that has many people thinking they moved in together. They’re already engaged, why not?
