Ariana, 21, and the 27-year-old rapper – who was previously engaged to Glee star Naya Rivera – confirmed that they were an official couple in October 2014 after working on a number of tracks together, including Right There.
Sources close to the couple have said that they broke up a few weeks ago after their schedules meant that they found it hard to spend quality time together.
â€œThey made the decision to part ways because their conflicting touring schedules would keep them apart over the next year,â€ an insider told Us Weekly.
The former loved-up couple used to gush about each other on their social media pages, at the beginning of the month, the Finally Famous rapper wrote: “Just know I love u and I care for ya.”
While Ariana tweeted on Thursday: “Love u babes the most. You just can’t imagine.”
Earlier this month, it was claimed that Big Sean was outraged over Ariana’s steamy performance with Justin Bieber. – Mirror
