Grande has since been forced to disable comments on her Instagram account after trolls blamed her for his death.

On June 21, 2018, Pete confirmed the engagement during an interview with Jimmy Fallon.

On October 15, 2018, it was revealed that the two had reportedly split just weeks after the death of her ex-boyfriend and rapper Mac Miller.

According to TMZ, they both admitted it was not the right time for their relationship to take off, but the source added they had not ruled out a reunion in the future.
