It’s official: Ariana Grande and Big Sean are dating. While they’ve skipped around the rumors, Ariana is finally going on the record about her relationship with the Detroit rapper.
In an interview with the U.K.’s Telegraph Magazine, the “Problem” singer confirmed that the two are an item. “Yes,” she replied when asked if they’re dating.
“He is one of the most amazing men in the whole world, and that includes my grandfather and my brother,” added Ariana. “I think the world of him, and he’s an amazing person. That’s kind of all there is to it.”
Sean is featured on “Best Mistake” off Ariana’s latest album My Everything and is the “mystery whisperer” on her No. 1 single “Problem.”
Sean, who was previously engaged to Naya Rivera, gushed about his new boo in an interview with Ryan Seacrest. “Ariana is very, very special. She’s very special to me,” he said. “Everything she has going on is good with her, everything I have going on is good with me, everything between me and her is good, and I’m just going to leave it at that.”
Dating rumors began circulating after the two were spotted holding hands backstage at the VMAs in August. Most recently, they were seen making out on a ride at Universal Studios Hollywood.
They have also hinted at their romance on Instagram. Ariana showed her love for Sean by wearing a necklace with his lion pendant, while Sean posted a pic of Ariana’s grandmother rocking his chains.
