Pop princess Ariana Grande is reportedly single again after breaking up with boyfriend Ricky Alvarez. According to sources the split was amicable and it's thought her super busy schedule meant they found it hard to make time for each other.
Ariana, 23, was first linked to backup dancer Ricky a year ago but insiders claim she's looking forward to being single and "do her for a little while".
Ariana Grande and Ricky Alvarez have reportedly ended their relationship
A source told E! News: "She broke up with him. He didn't cheat or anything, they just found it difficult to make it work. They are still friends though."
Ricky and Ariana set tongues wagging in July last year, when her now infamous 'donut-licking video' leaked. As well as featuring the bizarre act, the clip also showed the pair kissing – which instantly sparked rumours of a relationship.
At the time an insider revealed: "She and Ricky have gotten pretty close and they are officially a couple. They are keeping their relationship on the down low though and are trying to be as private as they can."
Last year Ariana split from Big Sean following a seven month romance
Before her relationship with Ricky, Love Me Harder hit maker Ariana enjoyed a seven-month romance with rapper Big Sean and it seems she's becoming the master of breaking up on good terms.
Following her split from Big Sean, a representative said: "They both deeply care for each other and remain close friends."
Ariana later added: "I'm good at making the best out of something. It also wasn't that hard for me, because we're friends. So it's chill."
