They were engaged within weeks of dating, and even got matching tattoos. Now, Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson may have some ink to cover up. TMZ, which broke the news of their marriage plans in June, is now reporting on the demise of those plans, with sources telling the site the couple broke up over the weekend, and that Grande ended things. A source confirms to CNN that the two are done, though TMZ notes the couple believed "it simply was not the right time for their relationship to take off."

"They realized it happened too quick and too early," a source tells Us Weekly. "The wedding is off, but they're working things out. They're not officially done yet." The 25-year-old singer detailed recent struggles on social media after the death of ex-boyfriend Mac Miller, who died last month of an apparent drug overdose; TMZ reports that that was the breaking point. Fans of the 24-year-old Davidson—who has apparently deleted his Instagram account, per Metro—meanwhile, are commiserating: One even started a GoFundMe for him. "He will need somewhere to sleep tonight," noted the fundraising effort, which was seeking to bring in $2,500 and has since been taken down. (Read more Ariana Grande stories.)
