Are Charlie Puth And Ariana Grande Dating?
Entertainment And News

Ariana Grande has had a couple of years of crazy ups and downs. In 2017, a suicide bomber killed 22 people and injured 139 others attending her concert in Manchester, England. Afterwards, she began struggling with anxiety, as described in her song “breathin’,” as well as a tribute to the victims called “get well soon,” which has 40 seconds of silence at the end. 

In addition, she went through a highly publicized engagement and subsequent breakup with Pete Davidson, and coped with the loss of her ex-boyfriend, Mac Miller. And while she has written and opened up about mental health, anxiety, and her struggle with PTSD, we can’t help but wonder if she’s ready to welcome love back into her life.

Many are speculating that she may be seeing a fellow singer. Are Charlie Puth and Ariana Grande dating?

For the August 2019 issue of Vogue, Grande revealed that she was essentially taking a break from dating:

“I don’t really remember how it started or how it finished, or how all of a sudden there were 10 songs on the board. I think that this is the first album and also the first year of my life where I’m realizing that I can no longer put off spending time with myself, just as me. I’ve been boo’d up my entire adult life. I’ve always had someone to say goodnight to. So 'Thank U, Next' was this moment of self-realization. It was this scary moment of ‘Wow, you have to face all this stuff now. No more distractions. You have to heal all this s***.’ ”

But as we all know, Ariana doesn’t stay away for very long. And though her interaction with Puth may seem harmless, it could also be a budding romance, don’t you think?

Fans are going nuts because of a comment Puth left on a photo she posted on Instagram. He commented “Wow.” Simple enough, right?

But what is making fans speculate that it’s more than just an innocent comment? Aside from their shared love of music, both making successful albums, Puth has also been featured on one of Ariana’s songs.

During an interview for Elvis Duran and the Morning Show back in October 2018, Puth revealed, “A lot of people don’t know this, but on ‘Dangerous Woman’ by Ariana Grande, I’m beatboxing in the background. You barely hear it!” 

Plus, the two seem to be friends. He attended Ariana’s release party for “7 Rings,” taking a photo in the booth with a few other people.

So, while it’s not completely clear if there’s any hope for a future with them, it’s safe to assume that Ari is focused on the most important person in her life right now: herself.
