By now, you’ve probably heard the news that Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson are engaged after dating for less time than it takes to see two full moons. The ‘SNL’ star proposed to his new girlfriend with a $100,000 VVS diamond ring that took days to design. There is one person who is taking the news harder than anyone else — Mac Miller.
Mac Miller and Ariana Grande were friends for years before they started dating after she broke up with Big Sean in 2016. Miller and Grande were actually supposed to wed before they broke up in May.
It was one thing to find out that his ex was already in a new relationship less than a week after breaking up with him, but the engagement news is really sending him over the edge.
A source tells Hollywood Life: “Mac is devastated that Ariana may have become engaged to her new boyfriend, he doesn’t want to believe it. He is still broken hearted over their split and he can’t imagine how she could move on so quickly, or fall in love already. It hurts Mac to think Ariana is considering marrying someone she barely knows. Mac loved Ariana for years, and it is like a punch in the gut to him that she would agree to marry someone new, after only dating them for a few weeks, and so soon after breaking up with him. Mac is crushed.”
This news may send him into another drinking binge such as the one that caused him to crash his G Wagon days after his split went public.
Both Mac and Ariana hinted that he has substance abuse issues that aren’t under control. The rapper recently released three singles that discussed suicidal thoughts and loneliness.
After being blamed for his poor decision making, the pop songstress made it clear that she has nothing to do with him not being able to ‘get his s*** together.’
Hopefully, Mac finds a healthier outlet to deal with his frustrations.
