Despite their brief relationship together, the couple was never shy about showing PDA.

Over the summer the couple moved into a swanky $16 million dollar apartment in Manhattan together.

Pete opened up about the couple's relationship and their new apartment in August during an interview with GQ; an interview, the comedian joked at the time wouldn't have happened had he not been linked with Grande.

'GQ wouldn't hit me up if I didn't recently get engaged to a super-famous person,' he quipped.

The Staten Island native told the mag that Ariana had foot the bill for the pricey home and even stocked the fridge. He joked that the was lucky to get to live there.

'She's really sweet. She's like, "This is our house," and I'm like, "You're very nice for saying that. Thank you for letting me stay here,"' Pete said in the interview.

He added: 'She's like, "We're getting married!" And I'm like, "I know, thank you for letting me stay here."'

The question of where Pete will get to stay moving forward has yet to be answered. 

The couple had been nearly inseparable during their whirlwind romance and up until this week. 

It's been a difficult time for the God is a Woman hitmaker as she dealt with the sudden death of her ex-boyfriend Mac Miller, who she split up with shortly before embarking on a romance with the Saturday Night Live funny man. 

Miller was found dead from a suspected drug overdose at his home in Los Angeles on September 7.   

The Self Care rapper dated Grande from 2016 until May of 2018.

The same month of their breakup, Miller crashed his Mercedes SUV into a pole and fled the scene. He was later arrested for a DUI and hit and run.

At the time of his DUI, trolls harassed Grande online and blamed her for causing him to drive under the influence.

Following his passing earlier this month, the singer was once again victimized by Mac's fans online who held her responsible for his apparent overdose.

On the day that the news broke of his death, the singer was forced to disable the comments on her Instagram account due to the vicious and vile comments by trolls.  

Since then the pop star has cancelled numerous public appearances.

Ariana and Pete both bowed out of appearing at the Emmy Awards in September due to her desire to stay away from the spotlight.

The SNL star was nominated for and won the award for Variety Sketch Series that night along with the cast of the show but was not there to accept the award.   

On Friday of this week, Grande announced another split. 

The singer confirmed that she is taking a break from music as she told fans she's 'been through hell.'

After she posted a three minute video of her pet pig (that she got with Davidson) at the time that she had promised a new music video.

A n annoyed fan called her 'lazy' for not releasing the music and was irritated about the piglet post.

'This era is beautiful to me but idk,' Ariana hit back at the commenter. 'Been thru hell and back and I'm doing my best to keep going.' 

She added, 'Thought this would make u laugh while u wait for the real one bc i took a break to take care of myself for a lil while. My b.'
