When Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson broke up, love died.
And yeah, that may be a little dramatic, but it’s true.
It feels true, anyway.
Sure, those two crazy kids were only together for around five months, and yeah, most people didn’t believe they’d make it anyway.
They’re both young celebrities, after all, and they did get engaged a few seconds after they started dating.
But they were adorable, OK?
There was something so goofy about the two of them together, and they were just such a cute couple.
They got a pet pig together and named it Piggy Smalls.
How is that not the sweetest thing that ever was?
But as cute as they were, they are no more, because last weekend, we heard the awful news that they’d broken up.
For what it’s worth, it doesn’t sound like it was a messy breakup, which is … well, it’s something.
Reports have claimed that their timing was just off, and while they still love each other, Ariana just needs some space to get herself together.
Which is definitely fair, considering the fact that her ex, Mac Miller, recently passed away.
But according to a new report from Hollywood Life, even though Pete understands all that, he’s still absolutely devastated.
A source close to Pete explains that he feels like he “has lost his best friend, his soulmate, and his lover, and he is utterly heartbroken over it.”
“He misses Ariana every minute of every day, from the second he wakes up until the moment he goes to sleep.”
The source adds that “Right now, Pete feels like he will never get over Ariana, that his heart will never mend, and that he will never fall in love again.”
“His friends and family are doing their best to rally round, but he’s just beside himself.”
Understandably, “It would be easier to deal with if one of them had cheated, but the circumstances under which they split make it just unbearable.”
“He feels like everything is still unresolved and he has no closure.”
Another source claims that even though he feels so low right now, he hasn’t given up hope entirely,
In fact, “Pete is convinced that he will be back with Ariana and he feels like it will happen before Christmas and maybe even before his birthday.”
His birthday is November 16th, by the way, so the dream is definitely alive.
This source also says that “He is giving her space but he is not giving up on her and he hopes that things will change for the better before the end of the year.”
From all the reports we’ve seen — and there have been so, so many — it really does sound like Ariana just needed some time to take care of herself.
So is there a chance that she and Pete could get back together and convince us to believe in love again?
For Pete’s sake (LOL), let’s hope that’s able to happen soon.
