Ariana Grande and Big Sean have decided to call it quits after spending eight months together.

Ariana Grande & Big Sean Split

Grande, 21, and Big Sean’s split was confirmed by their reps Monday.

“They both deeply care for each other and remain close friends,” their reps Us Weekly in a joint statement. “We kindly ask that the media respect their wish for privacy regarding this personal matter at this time.”

Grande and Big Sean, 27, have been broken up for the last few weeks, according to sources close to the couple.

“They made the decision to part ways because their conflicting touring schedules would keep them apart over the next year,” an insider told Us.

A few weeks ago, Big Sean had tweeted a post about Grande that now seems to point to when they decided to split.” Just know I love u and I care for ya,” the rapper, who was previously engaged to Glee star Naya Rivera, wrote.

Grande later echoed his sentiments, writing, “Love u babes the most. You just can’t imagine.”

Grande and Big Sean confirmed their relationship last October following months of speculation.
