Tissues at the ready...

Ariana Grande and her boyfriend of two years Mac Miller have officially split up and our hearts are broken.

Yup, while we thought these two were the real deal – especially after THAT joint performance at One Love Manchester last year – pop princess Ariana hopped on Instagram Stories to confirm the news with a pretty emotional post.


‘Hi! This is one of my best friends in the whole world and favorite people on the planet Malcolm McCormick,’ the 24-year-old wrote. ‘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!’

She then added: ‘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!!’

While no solid reason has been given just yet, the pair reportedly split due to their crazy work schedules. *Sobs*

So as we try and imagine a world without Ariana and Mac being the ultimate #couplegoals, let’s took a little look back at where it all began for these two.

And yes, we have stalked their Instagram accounts, YouTube and pictures to remember how cute they are.

How did they meet? Well through the power of social media and Twitter back in 2012. Mac literally slid into Ariana’s DM’s and the two of them coming together for a performance or duet and their cover of ‘Baby It’s Cold Outside’ was born.

Just after that, they joined forces with another duet for ‘The Way’ – have you seen the video? Mac and Ari literally start snogging at the end. Of course the Internet reacted how it would with the ‘WTF’s’, ‘OMG’s’ and ‘ILY’s’.

In an interview with Cosmopolitan when she was their cover girl, she spoke about her former relationship, she said: ‘I met him when I was 19. We have loved and adored and respected each other since the beginning, since before we even met, just because we were fans of each other’s talent. We weren’t ready at all, though, to be together. It’s just timing.’

In 2016, Mac told People magazine that the song ‘My Favorite Part’ – a little love song by Mac featuring Ariana – made them close friends again. ‘I wrote that love song before I saw her. We’re very good friends first and foremost. We made that song and started becoming close again. It’s very dope and I like how that worked out. It was great.

‘There was no awkwardness or weirdness, it was how it always was. Just both of us older, more mature and more sure of ourselves. When we first recorded together we were young and figuring it out, which we still are, but now seeing her growth and my growth – it’s great.’

When Ariana returned to America after the Manchester attack, Mac was there to greet her and her mum off the plane.

During their performances together, his eyes we fixated on her and it was the cutest thing you’ve ever seen.

Since then, the pair have continued to put on a loved-up display on Insta and were even spotted getting cosy at Coachella just a few weeks ago.

Now, if you managed to get through all that without crying, you’re probably okay to look through this mega adorbz gallery…
