It looks like Ariana Grande wants to keep her private life private! The singer just opened up about why she’s decided that from now on, she’s not going to discuss her love life or relationships online anymore.
The “Dangerous Woman” songstress spoke out after actress Florence Pugh clapped back at internet trolls who were hating on her relationship with Zach Braff. Some people had criticized the 24-year-old star for dating someone who was 21 years older than her.
“I am 24 years old,” she said. “I do not need you to tell me who I should and should not love. And I would never in my life ever, ever tell anyone who they can and cannot love. It is not your place. And really, it has nothing to do with you. So if those rules are something that you do not like, then please unfollow me because the abuse that you throw at him is abuse that you’re throwing at me.”
Ariana reposted Florence’s video to her Instagram Stories, adding in a now-deleted post, “Beautifully worded and deeply appreciated. Sharing special, personal life things that make you happy on the internet can be truly traumatic. I know I’ve taken a step back from doing so to protect my loved ones and myself but I just wanted to share this and let you know how perfectly you expressed this and how appreciated you are for doing so @florencepugh.”
For those who missed it, rumors recently started swirling that the former Nickelodeon actress was dating a real estate agent named Dalton Gomez, after fans noticed him making a lot of appearances on Ari’s social media accounts. Although the 26-year-old has yet to speak out about the relationship, TMZ reported that they’ve “been seeing each other for several months now.”
