Ariana Grande and Big Sean have ended their romance citing unfavorable work schedules as the reason, it has been confirmed.
News of their break up was announced by their reps in a joint statement on Monday.
‘They both deeply care for each other and remain close friends,’ their reps said in the statement. ‘We kindly ask that the media respect their wish for privacy regarding this personal matter at this time.’
There had been predictable speculations that the break up was triggered by Justin Bieber placing his arms around Grande during a concert performance a few weeks ago, but both parties maintain that it was work, not play, that did the split job.
Sean and Grande dated for just 8 months.
