ICYMI–this week, SNL comedian Pete Davidson and Ariana Grande announced their engagement after only a few weeks of dating.
The two had met for the first time back in 2016 when Grande appeared on SNL as the guest host. After 2016, the two hardly had any “public relationship,” together–as both were in other relationships. Ariana Grande was in an on-again, off-again relationship with rapper Mac Miller, and Pete Davidson had been dating actress Cazzie David. Both relationships reportedly came to an end rather recently.
Then, Davidson and Grande began spending a lot of time together and commenting on each other’s social media profiles frequently. Grande later confirmed their rumored relationship with an Instagram post.
A few weeks later, people claimed the two were engaged–and, it seems as though Ariana Grande confirmed the news to fans on Twitter.
As well, people have spotted Grande out wearing a $100,000+ engagement ring.
According to People Magazine, the two recently bonded over traumatic experiences in their lives having to do with terrorism and loss–Davidson had lost his father in 9/11, and Grande was the victim of a terrorist attack during her concert in Manchester in 2017. However, both Davidson and Grande recently got out of serious relationships–both of which ended in May of this year.
After the news of the couple’s engagement made headlines, many people were fixated on how Mac Miller and Cazzie David would react–seeing as it’s only been about a month since their relationships ended.
Fans believe that Cazzie David essentially “subbed” the couple on Instagram when she posted a photo of herself drinking wine in a South African wine valley.
They also thought that her original post from Africa was in response to Grande and Davidson’s original relationship news.
Fans immediately thought this was the most relatable reaction to seeing your ex get engaged–less than a month after you two broke up.
if anyone ever breaks up with me the week of my birthday and immediately starts dating a pop star and getting multiple tattoos dedicated to them i hope that i can respond even HALF as coolly as cazzie david going silent for a month then posting this: pic.twitter.com/q2oQnZW3nO

Cazzie David drinking wine and living her best life while Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson run to the altar is the celebrity equivalent of me laying at home on a Sunday night eating an entire pint of Van Leeuwen's while silently critiquing other people's wedding photos on Facebook pic.twitter.com/K0me6IHeh2

Other fans were pretty much “Team Cazzie” all the way.
Cazzie David's friend liked this comment. So it's pretty much confirmed Pete tossed her aside for Ariana. I feel so bad. I hope the good sis takes time for herself and then goes out and finds a loyal hot piece. She deserves it. pic.twitter.com/qOq5ZMtP8K

People also pointed out that Pete Davidson posted a photo of him and Ariana Grande eating cotton candy on his Instagram account–and the last photo of Cazzie David and Pete was…well…
If you were to ask any woman–if you found out your ex was engaged to a new girl just weeks after ending your 2-3 year relationship, the first thing you’d do is fly to a foreign country and drink endless bottles of wine (ideally). At least, I would.
