Ariana Grande’s romance with Mac Miller has come to an end.
The musical artists have broken up nearly two years after first going public with their relationship, TMZ reported. The split is the result of demanding work schedules for both the “Side to Side” singer, 24, and 26-year-old Miller.
Grande and the rapper — who first teamed up for a song together, “The Way,” in 2013 — will reportedly stay close friends following the break up.
News of the split comes just two weeks after Grande shared an Instagram photo of her embracing Miller at the Coachella music festival, where she made a surprise appearance with the DJ Kygo to perform her new song “No Tears Left To Cry.”
Miller also congratulated Grande with an effusive tweet when she debuted the song on April 20 after her lengthy hiatus from releasing music.
“Very proud of this girl right here,” Miller wrote at the time. “Welcome Back. We missed You. One of a kind.”
But Grande walked the red carpet by herself Monday at the Met Gala in Manhattan.
Grande first revealed she and Miller were dating in September 2016, about a month after rumors of a romance began swirling about the duo.
The pop star later explained that her connection to the rapper — who is known for songs like “Donald Trump” and “Bang!” — went back years before that.
“I met him when I was 19. We have loved and adored and respected each other since the beginning, since before we even met, just because we were fans of each other’s talent,” Grande said in a March 2017 interview with Cosmopolitan.
“We weren’t ready at all, though, to be together,” she continued. “It’s just timing. We both needed to experience some things, but the love has been there the whole time.”
