On Wednesday, TMZ reported that Ariana Grande and singer Malcolm McCormick, who goes by his stage name Mac Miller, had quietly broken up after nearly two years of dating (the two first publicly announced their coupledom in September 2016).
The breakup was reportedly amicable, and the artists remain friends, which is in no way surprising since the two were frequent musical collaborators and were publicly supportive of one another’s work. When Grande released her single “No Tears Left to Cry” last month, for instance, Miller tweeted it out with a congratulatory “very proud of this girl right here.”
In an Instagram story posted Thursday, Grande wrote, alongside a picture of her and Miller snuggling:
“Hi! This is one of my best friends in the whole world and favorite people on the planet Malcolm McCormick. I respect and adore him endlessly and am grateful to have him in my life in any form, at all times regardless of how our relationship changes or what the universe holds for each of us! Unconditional love is not selfish. It is wanting the best for that person even if at the moment, it’s not you. I can’t wait to know you and support you forever and I’m so proud of you!!”
Meanwhile, Miller has been spotted dribbling a basketball.
I always forget to imagine how the Hellenic sculptures of the Met must have been rolling their eyes all night (those that still have heads).
