We can all agree that Pete Davidson and Ariana Grande’s lightning quick engagement announcement was exactly that — quick, right? So now that we’ve gotten that out of the way let’s just give into our obsession with the couple and dig right in to the gory details, because now we’re learning that maybe the proposal wasn’t as rapid as we originally thought.
As it turns out, Davidson and his ex-girlfriend Cazzie David were supposedly ‘on a break’ when he fell for the pop star singer and one-time Scream Queen. And suddenly this whole thing seems a little less hasty.
TMZ, the publication that typically breaks these kinds of things down for us, has revealed that even though news of David and Davidson’s split was official on May 17, they were apparently on a break a lot longer than that. And it was during that same period that the Saturday Night Live star decided to pursue things with Grande rather than going back to his former relationship. So yes, the engagement is still quick, but apparently the feelings were brewing for a while.
Of course we still have so, so many questions, like when exactly Davidson bought the $93,000 engagement ring that Grande is sporting on her finger. And will this relationship last longer than Fred Armisen and Elisabeth Moss’s short-lived marriage?
More importantly though, does this mean that Davidson actually wasn’t single when he began officially pursuing things with Grande? Ross and Rachel never really figured it out, so how the heck are the rest of us supposed to?
Regardless, at least TMZ is reporting that all the involved parties are happy with the end result, and Cazzie isn’t holding grudges or planning on speaking up during that awkward part at the wedding when the minister asks if anyone has a reason the lovebirds shouldn’t tie the knot. So now we can all go back to obsessing about what it was that attracted these two in the first place, and also wondering if Chad will get an equally laissez-faire girlfriend on the next season of SNL. Because we’d totally be down for watching these two “Chad” it out together on screen…
Among other things, of course.
Let the whirlwind romance continue.
