Although Ariana Grande and Big Sean have been caught holding hands and kissing, they still haven't confirmed that they're dating. In fact, they actively avoid the question! However, it's not because they aren't crazy about each other — it's because the "Break Free" singer doesn't want people to know that she's in a relationship.

“Sean wants to go public with their relationship but Ariana’s team is holding her back. They think she’s better off keeping the mystery," a source told Hollywood Life.


"They would actually prefer her to be single, but she’s way too into Sean to break up with him for the sake of her career.”

Even though the rapper is respecting her wishes, it's putting stress on their relationship.

“He’s cool right now keeping it private, but in some ways he does resent it, so that’s something that’s stressful for them right now," their source said. "They’re trying not to let it affect them, but eventually he’s going to make her make a choice. He’s not going to keep this secret forever.”

Sean revealed that he has a new girlfriend on Twitter, so he's obviously crazy about her, even if he can't name names.

Since they haven't exactly hidden the fact that they're into each other, we kind of agree that they have to go public eventually. We know they're more than just musical collaborators!
