A friend of Ariana Grande expressed their concern over the singer’s “spontaneous” engagement to comedian Pete Davidson.
Grande and Davidson’s engagement was announced on Monday after just a few weeks of dating. A close source spoke ET and says friends of the two lovebirds aren’t surprised by the engagement, but some are a bit concerned. The two 24-year-old celebs started dating late last month after their respective breakups from actress Cazzie David and rapper Mac Miller.
“Ariana gets so excited about an idea and so set on making it happen that she doesn’t always think it through,” the source says. “We of course want her to be happy, but this was a very quick lifetime decision. It’s a little worrisome and we fear it was so spontaneous it might not last. One thing is for sure, Peter does look very much in love, and while they are young, they are certainly old enough to make this decision on their own.”
Despite the concern, the source says the two are definitely “head over heels” for one another.
“Ariana and Pete have so much in common it’s doesn’t surprise all their friends,” the source says. “They’ve both been through so much and are able to share openly what they have faced and support each other with understanding. Ariana and Pete are both passionate and impulsive and fell head over heels for each other. They didn’t hesitate to share their love and their commitment for one another with their friends and with fans on social media.”
“Peter is an old soul and always has known what he wants, so some friends aren’t at all surprised this happened so fast,” the source adds.
The source also says the pop star relates deeply to the comedian.
“They are both so passionate and swing back and forth from strong, loving moments to heated arguments … Peter is the sweetest person in the world and he is just dealing with a lot psychological challenges,” the source claims. “Ariana feels right now she can relate to his pain and that they have connected on many levels.”
Grande and Davidson enjoyed a late-night trip to Disneyland in Anaheim, California, on Monday following the news of their engagement.
