Sometimes people are just nice – it doesn’t have to mean anything more. Ariana Grande complimented her former boyfriend Ricky Alvarez, and some people hurried to assume that they have rekindled their relationship in secret.
When one fan proved to be way too excited over the prospect of Ariana and Ricky dating again, the singer made sure to tell them to chill.
As you know, in the music video for Thank U, Next, Ariana wrote that Big Sean ‘could still get it’ in her Burn Book. – Nothing like that about Ricky, however!
In fact, she wrote that they were ‘friends forever’ something she also mentioned in her response to the fan yesterday.
It all started when the ex shared a first look at his new blonde and buzzed hairstyle on his Instagram account, and Ariana left an approving comment.
‘These colors are sick,’ she simply wrote.
But one shipper thought the comment was a sign they were more than just friends for some reason and wrote in all caps: ‘WHATS ABOUT YOU AND ARIANA???? WE ALL WANT TO KNOW.’
It makes sense, however, since the account was dedicated to the Ariana x Ricky OTP but still – talk about reaching!
‘We’re friends everyone take a big ol breather ?,’ Ariana cleared things up.
Sorry Ariana and Ricky shippers, it doesn’t seem like they will ever be romantically involved again.
After all, in her Thank U, Next single, Ariana’s verse about Ricky goes: ‘Wrote some songs about Ricky / Now I listen and laugh.’
Ricky even posted a clip of him listening to that line and pretending to be shocked as it definitely sounded like a diss.
Proving once again how great friends the exes are nowadays, Ariana took to her Insta Stories to reply: ‘I’m sorry u got the worst line…it was meant v lovingly.’
