Ever since she split with Big Sean, it seems like Ariana Grande is trying to keep her relationships out of the public eye. Although she's been linked to her backup dancer Ricky Alvarez ever since they were caught kissing in a donut shop last July, rumors are swirling that they've actually split up.

The pop star recently gave an interview with Closer, saying that guys never ask her out — and they pretty much never get the chance to because she enjoys hanging out in a chiller environment.

"I think men approach me less now I'm famous, but then I hardly ever go out any more," she said, before reflecting on what it's like to be single.

In the past few months, Ariana had become a little more comfortable sharing cuddly moments with Ricky on Snapchat. However, they never walked the red carpet together and they weren't flaunting their relationship. If they actually split for good, they did so extremely privately.
