Ariana Grande Is Done Talking About Her Love Life
We probably won't get another "Pete Davidson."
After releasing an entire album inspired by one relationship, Sweetener, and then quickly following it up six months later with Thank U Next, probably to eclipse her breakup with Pete Davidson (and to give fans bop after bop, no exaggeration), it's not surprising that Ariana Grande is keeping her current relationship out of the spotlight. According to People, she's dating real estate agent Dalton Gomez, but even the most eagle-eyed fan probably won't spot him anywhere on her feed. In a now-deleted Instagram Story, Grande summed up her current outlook on love: she's protecting her loved ones and herself by keeping personal things personal.
"Sharing special, personal life things that make u happy on the internet can be truly traumatic," she wrote alongside a post featuring a video from Florence Pugh explaining that her love life was nobody's business, even though people on social media take it upon themselves to criticize her relationship with Zach Braff. Grande went on to explain that she understands the sentiment, since she's lived through it. "I know I’ve taken a step back from doing so to protect my loved ones and myself but I just wanted to share this and let u know how perfectly u expressed this and how appreciated u are for doing so @florencepugh," she continued.
Grande included two of Pugh's points, "'Being hateful is not trendy.' 'I do not need you to tell me who I should and should not love and I would never in my life tell anyone who they can or can not love. It is not your place and has nothing to do with you,'" before adding, "I screamed."
Grande's fans will remember that she wasn't shy about posting about her ex-fiancé and have undoubtedly noticed how low-key she's been about her current relationship status. Now, we all know it's all by design.
