3 Crazy But Believable Theories About Why Pete And Ariana Broke Up

I’m still processing the news of Pete Davidson and Ariana Grande’s breakup, and there are still so many questions, namely, why Pete and Ariana broke up. While we keep waiting for some more official answers, or even just a brief statement, why not speculate on some things? Enter Enty Lawyer, a self-described “300-pound entertainment lawyer who has been married six times, lives in his parent’s basement and has an obsession with digging up celebrity dirt.” If you don’t know Enty (we are on a first-name basis, get on my level), you should. He’s known for his scary accurate blind gossip items, which are basically unnamed celebrity gossip rumors that have not been confirmed, but more often than not end up being correct. He doesn’t name names, but he will leave clues as to who his blind items are about, and it’s the readers’ jobs to try to figure it out, basically like a riddle. Enty also has a podcast, which is literally amazing. In a recent episode, he did a deep dive into some theories behind why Pete and Ariana broke up, and I decided to cover a few of the more believable ones. You should def listen to his entire episode for all his theories. Obviously, none of these have been confirmed, so all of these should be taken with a grain of salt, but there’s a lot to consider.


Okay, so in the past, we’ve discussed the truly insane timeline of Pete and Ariana’s relationship. Without any inside knowledge of the situation, it basically seems impossible that there wasn’t some kind of cheating/dishonesty going on at the beginning of this relationship, even if things didn’t get physical until both Pete and Ariana were single. I have my doubts, but that’s neither here nor there. More interestingly, Enty says that Ariana has recently been texting (and maybe even sexting) with her ex, Big Sean. Okay, so I liked Ari and Big Sean when they were originally together, but I think she really needs to stop dating the same three men over and over again. Maybe it’s just me, but I feel like Ari should probably just spend some time alone working on herself, given the year she’s had.

Missed Appearances

Ariana’s entire career, she’s always been pretty reliable. You never hear about her being tough to work with or erratic, other than some famous donut licking. But lately, Ariana hasn’t been great at showing up to things. She was apparently supposed to be featured at last month’s Emmy Awards, but just didn’t show up at the last minute. She also skipped the American Music Awards, where she was a nominee. She dropped out of Saturday Night Live with short notice, leading them to replace her with Kanye—and we all know how well that went. But most importantly, just in the past week, she skipped a charity event hosted by Scooter Braun, her own manager, where she was allegedly going to perform. That’s not a good look at all, and it leads to the suspicion that her team may have had a talk with her about how Pete was affecting her reputation.


As if Pete and Ariana’s relationship wasn’t crazy enough already, the sudden death of Mac Miller really cast a tragic shadow on things. His passing obviously deeply affected Ariana, and that’s not something most people easily bounce back from. Mac was in her life for years, and she loved him no matter what. A source told PEOPLE that his death “made her rethink many things in her life”, like getting married. It makes sense that suffering a devastating loss would make you reevaluate your life.

These are just some of the theories thrown out in Enty’s podcast. You really should listen to the whole thing, because he throws out a lot of wild stuff. You do have to pay for it, but it’s worth it.
