Earlier this month, Ariana Grande and rapper Mac Miller deleted their year and a half relationship from the celebrity couples server. Unfortunately for Mac, he’d barely begun to click the trashcan icon on all of their couple selfies before Bossip reported that Ariana’s already seeing someone else – Saturday Night Live’s Pete Davidson. Wait, wasn’t Pete Davidson dating Larry David’s daughter Cazzie? Not no more they ain’t. This sort of reminds me of that story about Madge’s ex-husband Guy Ritchie and how he immediately dumped his then-girlfriend when she expressed interest in him. His excuse? “Look, you know I really love you, but she’s Madonna.” Cazzie might be familiar with that sort of excuse now.
An interview that Pete did with Complex’s Pete Rosenberg aired last night, and Pete was asked about his relationship with the interestingly named Cazzie. Pete was almost like, “Who? Oh, yeah, that girl. Sorry, I couldn’t see her over Ariana’s latex bunny ears.”
“We’re not together anymore,” Davidson told Rosenberg. “Very talented girl, she’ll be great and she’ll be fine. Yeah, I think she’ll be okay.”
When Rosenberg asked if Davidson, 24, will be alright following the split, the star simply said, “Yeah, probably.”
Bossip speculates that Ariana, also 24, could be at Studio 8H in NYC tonight for the SNL finale. Nicki Minaj is the musical guest and, after Ariana commented on Nicki’s rehearsal post, she invited her to the show. Pete works there, so this could all be some sort of convoluted plot for them to hang out at the after-party! Nicki Minaj is basically Cupid in a push-up bra.
And of course, he’ll be ok! He maybe-moved on to a pop superstar. He’ll be more than ok. He’ll end up guesting in one of her videos, she’ll welcome him to the stage a few times, they’ll get papped on a day when she’s licked too many donuts and the resulting tummy bloat is mistaken for pregnancy, and then they’ll break up. She’ll move on to the next guy. He’ll leave the relationship with people actually knowing who the hell he is. It’s a win/win for everyone except the rapper and Larry David’s kid.
