Since becoming one of the most prominent pop stars of today, Ariana Grande’s relationships have been some of the most talked about in the world of music.

Here are 5 men Ariana Grande has dated.

4. Jai Brooks
Sources close to Ariana say that she connected with Jai Brooks, an Australian YouTuber / prankster, in the summer of 2012 through Twitter. Despite living on different continents, their long distance relationship was kept active by texting and video chatting daily. The two finally went public with their relationship on October 7th, 2012 and met for the first time on New Years in New York City.

While together, Ariana and Big Sean collaborated on numerous songs together such as Right There, Problem, and Big Mistake. In April of 2015, US Weekly reported that the two split due to “conflicting tour schedules”.
1. Mac Miller
It is unknown how exactly Ariana and Mac Miller originally crossed paths, but in a recent interview with People, Mac Miller claims that their relationship “grew organically” over the years. The two have worked together on songs since 2012 and view each other as very talented artists. On July 15th, 2016, Ariana and Mac Miller were seen together at Disneyland and a few days later playing Pokemon Go. The first confirmation of a serious relationship sparked the following month in August when the pair was photographed kissing after a night out at a sushi restaurant.
