Singer Ariana Grande and actor/comedian Pete Davidson may have gone public with their breakup on Sunday evening, but the couple has reportedly been split up for much longer than we first realized.
According to sources with inside knowledge about the couple, Grande and Davidson had been struggling to make a real connection for a few weeks. (RELATED: Ariana Grande Got Proposed To In The Lamest Way Possible)

The couple was most recently spotted on the SNL set Saturday, but they appeared to be going through the motions without much genuine affection for each other.
“There was word they’d broken up,” the insider told Page Six. But still, “they were Instagramming [Stories] together in bed, and she was backstage at ‘SNL.'”
It’s worth noting that Grande recently cancelled her appearance as the SNL premiere’s musical guest (Kanye West stepped in to replace her), and Pete Davidson was just seen inking over his tattoo dedicated to Grande.

It’s not clear exactly what broke the couple up but many are speculating it was a combination of Mac Miller’s death and rushing into things too fast. Neither has commented on the matter since news broke.
