After fueling romance rumors with Mac Miller in the last couple weeks, Ariana Grande subtly confirmed her new relationship with the rapper on the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards red carpet.

Responding to questions about her love life from pre-show host Charlamagne Tha God on Sunday, Grande promised him she would "send [Miller] your regards."

When Charlamagne prodded Grande about where Miller was, the singer responded, "Being supportive. It's OK to be alone even when you have a boo."

Grande and Miller were spotted leaving a Big Apple nightclub on Friday night just ahead of the show and after a trip to New York's Museum of Ice Cream.

The pair's relationship isn't too shocking—they collaborated on 2013's "The Way," and even shared a kiss in the accompanying music video.

Grande was later spotted hugging Miller in the audience after singing "Side to Side" with Nicki Minaj.

The 23-year-old was also on the receiving end of a joke about 2015's #donutgate, with Charlamagne advising her to not lick any pastries during the show.
