Ariana Grande has found a new boyfriend and it looks like the internet does not approve. The “Dangerous Woman” artist is dating Mac Miller. The couple was spotted over the weekend grabbing a bite to eat at Katsu-Ya in Encino, California, according to TMZ. The two were not shy about showing PDA, a witness said that at one point the songstress was lying on the rapper’s lap.
Sources close to the pair have revealed that they are indeed dating even though Miller has played down their relationship, insisting that he and Grande are simply friends and referred to her as a “homey.” The two met years ago when the rapper was featured on her hit single, “The Way” where he played her boyfriend and they shared a kiss.
Grande recently ended her relationship with her backup dancer Ricky Alvarez in July after dating for a year. This marked one of the “Focus” singer’s more private romances that she kept to herself minus the occasional Instagram post.
In May, she briefly addressed her relationship during an interview with Billboard. She told the publication, "We're happy. I'm a very happy girl. I have a healthy life right now, and I think that's all anyone cares to know. The end."
People reported that Grande and Alvarez were first romantically linked after the doughnut incident at a California bakery. The singer was caught on video licking doughnuts on display several times and at one point she yelled “I hate America.” During her visit to the bakery, she also kissed the backup dancer seemingly confirming their romance.
Prior to dating Miller, Grande has dated YouTube sensation Jai Brooks, The Wanted singer Nathan Sykes, rapper Big Sean and most recently Alvarez.
While she may be happy in her new romance, Twitter doesn’t seem to approve. Check out the Twitter reactions to Grande dating Miller below.
