Grande rose to prominence when she starred in the musical 13 in 2008. This led to her landing the role of Cat Valentine in Victorious and its fallout Sam and cat.

His musical career began in 2011 with the soundtrack album Music by Victorious. Two years later, Grande released her first album Yours sincerely And the rest, as they say, is history. So far, she has won over 207 awards including two Grammys, a Bambi Award, a Brit Award and many more.

Her musical talent propelled her into the limelight and her private life was also caught up in it. Here are her boyfriends over the years.

  1. Graham Phillips

Phillips was Grande’s first official boyfriend. The two met as teenagers on the Broadway musical 13. They started dating in 2009 after about a year of friendship. The two had been strong for three years, which resulted in several duets and a joint Emmys appearance.

Eventually, the two parted ways amicably in December 2011. They both remain on good terms, with Phillips posting a throwback photo with Grande on his Instagram.

  1. Jai Brooks

In 2012, Jai Brooks and her twin brother, Luke Brooks, both bet to see who could catch Grande’s attention first. Both were part of the Australian Youtube comedy group and boyband called Janoskians. In the end, Jai won when Grande gave him her phone number.

They then struck up a long-distance relationship for about a year before Grande publicly revealed that Brooks had broken up via text. Immediately, Brooks tweeted that Grande cheated on him with Nathan Sykes.

The couple reunited two years later in 2014 and got back together for a few months before going their separate ways again.

  1. Nathan Sykes

After Brooks and Grande initially split, Grande dated Nathan Sykes, a member of popular British band The Wanted. They dated for five months before going their separate ways. However, they returned when they reunited as Justin Bieber’s opening act. To believe round. Talk about fate!

They were smitten and dated for another few months before long distance became too much for them and they called him again.

Her relationship with Big Sean came to public attention in 2015. They had met a few years ago when they collaborated on the song. Just there on Grande’s debut album Yours sincerely.

The couple made their relationship official with an appearance at the 2015 Grammy Awards. After about eight months of bliss together, they went their separate ways due to conflicting schedules. It’s hard to be a singing sensation, isn’t it? You write about love, but you don’t have time to enjoy it.

  1. Ricky Alvarez

After Big Sean left the scene, Alvarez walked in and knocked Grande out from her feet. Few people know that this relationship even happened, perhaps because it was short-lived.

Alvarez was one of Grande’s backup dancers during her 2014 tour. The two sent speculation when they kissed onscreen in 2015. The pair are said to have dated from mid-2016 to 2017 before to separate.

  1. mac miller

While many of Grande’s past relationships may have seemed spontaneous or more of a fling, her relationship with Mac Miller was more than that. The two were spotted together sharing a steamy kiss outside a sushi restaurant in 2016, four years after their song Baby, it’s cold outside has been freed.

They went strong for about two years before confirming they were no longer together. Although Grande hinted the relationship was ‘toxic’, she continued to call him ‘an angel’ in her song Thank you, next.

  1. pete davidson

The couple’s whirlwind romance began when Pete Davidson broke up with Cazzie David and Ariana Grande called it quits with Miller. Davidson, of saturday night live, announced their relationship on her Instagram in 2018.

Fans weren’t even used to them being a couple when they got engaged a month later. Davidson bought Grande a $93,000 ring. They adopted a pig together and moved into a condo to live together. However, they broke up soon after, with Davidson wishing her “everything in the world”.

  1. Mikey Foster

Great dated social house member Mikey Foster for a short time. Foster opened up on her Sweetener tour in 2019. They even kissed in their collaborative music video Buddy which sent fans into panic mode as they tried to figure out if they were dating or not.

After the clip, the two were together for two consecutive nights and were even seen holding hands at one point. Later, it was confirmed that they had been together for a while, but they didn’t last too long before they broke up.

  1. Dalton Gomez

The couple were rumored to be dating when they were spotted kissing on a night out with friends in February 2020.

According to sources, Gomez was hired to help find a home for Grande. We don’t know if they found a home or not, but they certainly found each other. The two have kept their relationship private. Last year in May, they even tied the knot in an intimate affair at home.

Ariana Grande’s personal life has been the subject of conversation and criticism many times, especially when her former boyfriend Mac Miller passed away and she was blamed for it. After that, she tries to keep her relationships safely hidden from the public eye.

These former boyfriends who have spoken about their relationship with Grande have mostly good things to say about her. She has now been married for over a year and the couple seem deeply in love.

Consciously keeping most details of their relationship private has worked well for the couple so far. Hopefully the happy couple can inspire Grande to release more upbeat and loving songs.
