When reports first broke that Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson ended their engagement, multiple outlets suggested that the two were still talking. As recently as October 20, the two were said by E! to still be in contact because they "still care about each other." There were even hopes on Davidson's part for a reconciliation because he "sees a future with her," a source told Page Six then.
Those hopes are gone, at least for now. People is reporting today that Grande and Davidson don 't talk anymore. “They have no contact now, and she keeps moving forward,” a source told the outlet. “She seems very happy and positive. She isn’t talking about dating and is instead focused on work and herself."
Us Weekly echoed this in its report last week that Davidson changed his phone number to distance himself. “He decided to focus on himself," a source said.
The update comes after Grande confirmed on Twitter that she let two of the three surviving exes on her ex-boyfriend-inspired track, "Thank U, Next," listen to it in advance. Grande's ex Mac Miller tragically passed away, but Big Sean and Ricky Alvarez got to hear the song ahead of the entire world hearing their callouts in its first verse. Davidson? Seemingly not.
Grande released the song less than an hour before Davidson made his first appearance on SNL since their breakup. He briefly addressed their breakup during his segment on Weekend Update. He said: "And the last thing I will say is I know some of you are curious about the breakup, but the truth is it’s nobody’s business," he started. "And sometimes things just don’t work out, and that’s okay. She’s a wonderful, strong person, and I genuinely wish her all the happiness in the world. Now please, go vote on Tuesday."
