After rumors started circling following her solo appearance at the Met Gala this week, Ariana confirmed via Instagram stories today that she and Mac are no longer a couple, but are still “best friends.”
“I respect and adore him endlessly and am grateful to have him in my life in any form, at all times, regardless of how our relationship changes or what the universe holds for each of us!” Ariana wrote.
She added a note mentioning unconditional love and “wanting the best for that person even if at the moment it’s not you.”
The couple confirmed their relationship in fall of 2016, and their most recent public interaction was Mac’s heartfelt show of support for “No Tears Left to Cry,” when he tweeted that Ari was “one of a kind.”
