Ariana Grande Confirms Nathan Sykes Split [AUDIO]
The Wanted are not the only thing on a break in Nathan Sykes' life, as Ariana Grande confirmed their breakup after approximately four intense, PDA-filled months of romance. Yeah, we're majorly bummed. Nariana was such a cute couple.
For the past month, we've been wondering about the status of their relationship. Nariana breakup rumors began circulating around the holidays due to this interview, with neither commenting on their status, despite desperate requests from their fans. We even did some investigating since the rumors appeared based on some pretty shaky facts. And neither Ariana or Nathan offered up information, so it remained a source of curiosity and an unanswered question.
However, Grande herself has confirmed what fans have been asking for months. They broke up but are still friends. We just felt the hearts and stomachs of Nariana shippers plummet.
In an interview with Chicago-based DJ Showbiz Shelly during the Grammys weekend, Shelly commented on Nariana performing at a Christmas show in Illinois, saying, "You performed with Nathan, you guys did awesome. You guys still happy…together?"
Grande responded very diplomatically, saying, "We broke up a little while ago but he's a really good friend. He's so talented. I am so glad to met him and have a friend like him in my life. He's an amazing person. It was very civil. It was mutual… you know. He's such a great person. I adore him and he is so talented."
Hmm...that was a mature way for her to handle it but we'd be lying if she said we weren't curious as to WTF happened. They were SO into each other.
Perhaps things flamed out quickly because the romance were so intense? The couple was not afraid to show affection and was always seen holding hands and unable to take their eyes off one another.
Sigh. We're totally bummed. Nariana was our replacement for Jelena and Haylor.
