Ariana Grande Boyfriend 2014: Singer Reveals She Still 'Adores' Nathan Sykes
Ariana Grande has finally opened up on her break-up with The Wanted's Nathan Sykes.
In an interview with DJ Showbiz Shelly courtesy of Perez Hilton, the singer said, "We broke up a little while ago, but he's really a good friend. He's so talented. I am so glad to have met him and have a friend like him in my life. He's an amazing person. It was very civil. It was mutual."
But maybe the couple's break-up is more than just civil as she added, "He's such a great person. I adore him and he's so talented."
Grande's "feelings" for her former boyfriend helps in clearing Sykes' name in the singer's revelation about an unhealthy relationship that she previously experienced. Last month, she told Teen Vogue about an unnamed guy in her life who changed her dramatically.
She said, "I was dating a boy who made me a different person. And my family was like 'You've lost your light, you are constantly distracted.' If I waited too long to text him back, it was the end of the world. And it was just a very unhealthy relationship."
As surprising as it may seem given the adorable couple's public image, many people assumed that she was referring to Sykes.
But, now that the world knows that she still adores him, rumors about Sykes being a bad boyfriend will hopefully come to a halt.
The two first met while working on the "Almost Is Never Enough" duet song for the "Mortal Instruments: City of Bones" movie. Reports of the pair dating soon surfaced and were finally confirmed in September when the two tweeted about the status of their relationship.
They broke up in December due to the hardships of maintaining a long-distance relationship. A source told US Weekly that even though they were under the same manager, their schedules made it hard for the young stars to see each other. The source also added, "They were just not into it anymore."
