Ariana Grande has reportedly offered to cover the cost of victims' funerals following Monday's attack

Following the devastating attack, Ariana took to Twitter to say she was "broken" by the incident. She wrote: "Broken. From the bottom of my heart, I am so so sorry. I don't have the words." Her team led by manager Scooter Braun, also issued a statement: "Tonight, our hearts are broken," it read. "We mourn the lives of children and loved one taken by this cowardly act. We are thankful for the selfless service tonight of Manchester's first responders… We ask all of you to hold the victims, their families, and all those affected in your hearts and prayers."

Ariana, 23, has since returned to her home in Florida. She was spotted landing at Boca Raton, where she was met off the plane by her boyfriend Mac Miller. "She looked distraught and like she had been crying," an onlooker told People. "They hugged for a while before they headed to a waiting car. Ariana's mum Joan was with her." Another source close to Ariana added: "It's so, so sad. She loves her fans and is absolutely crushed and devastated, as you can imagine. She can't believe this happened. She just wants to be with her family and loved ones right now."
