The news of the split comes following the death of Grande's former boyfriend rapper Mac Miller, from an apparent drug overdose and her struggle with PTSD after her Manchester concert arena was bombed, killing 22 and injuring 500 people.

The couple had also cancelled an appearance at the 2018 Emmys. Her team had also released a statement in September saying that the pop star was going to take some much needed time to heal and mend, adding that she will be using the period to spend time with her loved ones and work on new music.

Davidson and Grande had announced their engagement in May after a brief period of dating.

Fans sent words of support to the singer on social media.
