Ariana Grande, Big Sean Hold Hands At VMAs
Grande and Big Sean were caught holding hands before a commercial break at the 2014 VMAs while walking down a backstage hallway. The small show of affection is the first time the pair has shown PDA publicly, though eyewitnesses have claimed to have seen the new couple being loved up around Hollywood over the last month.
Back on Aug. 3, Grande, 20, and Big Sean, 26, apparently went on a date to see The Purge at the Grove in Los Angeles. During the movie, the pair was spotted kissing and left before the thriller was over, a source told E! News.
The budding relationship between Grande and Big Sean comes on the heels of high-profile breakups for the two music stars. Grande split from her on-off boyfriend Jai Brooks, 19, in July after a short-lived romance with The Wanted's Nathan Sykes. Big Sean, meanwhile, broke off his engagement with Glee actress Naya Rivera earlier this year. Rivera has since married her longtime friend Ryan Dorsey.
When news first broke about the potential new couple, a source insisted that the two, who worked on Grande's VMA-winning song “Problem” together, were simply good friends. "They have been friends since they made the song together," the source told E!. "They have been spending more time together and recently have been getting very close. They are both doing great.”
Neither Grande nor Big Sean has confirmed the romance rumors.
