Pop icon Ariana Grande and hip-hop star Mac Miller appeared to be the picture-perfect couple – from the start of their relationship in 2016 right up until the moment that they announced that it had ended two years later. Ultimately, though, Grande would explain why she and Miller had split – and she didn’t mince words while doing so.
Back in 2012, the now ex-couple made each other’s acquaintance in one of the most modern ways imaginable: the rapper responded to one of Grande’s tweets. And from there, the pair engaged in a conversation that ultimately ended with Miller suggesting they record a duet together; Grande agreed.
After that, Grande and Miller collaborated on a handful of songs and remained friends as the pop star navigated a few relationships of her own. It wouldn’t be until 2016, in fact, that she and Miller would become something more.
