'Bang Bang' singer Ariana and her rapper beau have separated following eight months of dating.
Showing all is still amicable, however, the former couple released a joint statement via their reps, saying: "They both deeply care for each other and remain close friends."
No official reason for the break up was given, but a source told Us Weekly that the singers' hectic touring schedules keeping them apart had been a factor.
Big Sean and Ariana – who previously dated Nathan Sykes from The Wanted – made their romance public in August last year, and since then have been quite open about their relationship, sharing images of each other to social media.
Meanwhile, Ariana has not referenced the split on social media. Instead she's been throwing herself into work. She spent yesterday on the set of new comedy horror show Scream Queens, which stars Lea Michele and Emma Roberts.
The starlet – who fronted Nickelodeon series Sam & Cat - has a role in the show.
