TMZ'ssource added that the couple felt it wasn't the "right time" for their relationship to "take off".
'Ariana Grande literally lost 22 fans at a concert previous year, lost her ex boyfriend, and now just broke up with her fiancé.my empathic side is out of control rn i could really throw up just by attempting to put myself in her shoes rn'.
"It was way too much too soon", a Grande source tells PEOPLE. The Internet can be a dark and upsetting place, yet as news about the two young stars flooded social media, it was actually a joy to watch.
The couple's split comes at a hard time for Grande, who's been dealing with the loss of ex-boyfriend Mac Miller, who died from an apparent drug overdose on September 7. Us Weekly: "Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson Split, End Their Engagement After Four Months".
The pair got engaged after just a few weeks.
Grande also canceled her appearance on last month's "SNL" season premiere, citing "emotional reasons", according to Lorne Michaels.
Grande recently expressed that she was going through a hard time, canceling some appearances and tweeting a lot of personal messages to fans saying that she needs a break and lamenting the negativity that's been thrown her way lately.
And while the couple may be over for now, TMZ says they "aren't ruling out the possibility of anything in the future". "I'm kidding, but like in 10 years, God forbid if that ever happened, there will be a song called Pete Davidson, like playing in speakers at K-Mart and I'll be working there".
