Ariana Grande has a new man in her life, and he looks to be making her very happy.
So who is the man holding Grande’s attention? According to TMZ, it’s Mac Miller (who happens to be a rapper from Pittsburgh), and the couple are not hiding their affection for each other.
During a date on Sunday night, the new couple enjoyed a meal together at Katsu-Ya in Encino, but that’s not all they enjoyed, because apparently they couldn’t keep their hands off each other and were kissing and giggling throughout the meal. According to witnesses, at one point in the evening Grande was even spotted lying in Miller’s lap.
Plus TMZ managed to get some photographic evidence of the date, and we think it’s safe to say that Grande and Miller look very content in each other’s company. And that kiss definitely suggests they are more than friends (despite Miller downplaying the relationship and referring to Grande as a “homey”).
Sources close to Miller and Grande reportedly told TMZ that they were dating — and it’s been a long time coming, because they knew each other even before Grande dated Big Sean, because Miller starred as her boyfriend in her “The Way” music video.
In addition to their kissing date, Grande also recently brought Miller onstage during her New York concert at the Nikon at Jones Beach Theater for a surprise performance of their track “The Way.”
But what makes it official? During the MTV VMAs preshow, host Charlamagne Tha God asked Grande where Miller was, to which she responded, “Being supportive. It’s OK to be alone even when you have a boo.” Not only that, but she posted this to her Snapchat following the awards show:
However, there’s only one problem with this new romance: Grande’s fans don’t approve.
Fans have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts on Grande’s new man, and unfortunately there are a lot of unhappy people.
Yep, a lot of people don’t like it.
Some are even convinced it’s a PR stunt.
