After weeks of speculation, Ariana Grande has finally confirmed her relationship with rapper Mac Miller. Appearing on an episode of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” Wednesday, Grande was shy when asked about the rapper.
“This is so crazy. I’ve never had the relationship talk on a show before,” she said. When asked if she was happy with Miller, Grande said, “Yes.”
Rumors about their relationship started in August when Grande, 23, brought Miller, 24, on stage during her set at the Billboard Hot 100 Music Festival. The pair was also spotted together at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards. The two artists have also previously collaborated on the songs “Into You” and “The Way.”
Miller has spoken about Grande before, telling People the two became close again after working on “My Favorite Part”. “I wrote that love song before I saw her.
