“Kim and Ariana are friends and have been for the past few years,” an insider told Us Weekly of Kardashian's rapport with Grande, 28. “Whenever they’re at the same event, they make sure to say hi to each other.”
“Just because Kim is now dating Ariana’s ex Pete, it hasn’t changed their friendship,” the source pointed out. “They adore each other and support each other’s brands.”
The "7 rings" singer and the Saturday Night Live star, 28, had a headline-making relationship after getting engaged in June 2018 following one month of dating. Despite their whirlwind romance, the pair never made it down the aisle, with Grande and Davidson splitting four months later. The chart topper clearly did not let their failed romance stop her from finding "the one," as she later wed real estate agent Dalton Gomez in May 2021.
The King of Staten Island star later moved on to another high profile relationship with the Keeping Up With The Kardashians alum — shortly after her split from ex-husband Kanye West — in October 2021 after meeting on the late night comedy show. The buzzed-about-duo made their relationship Instagram official on March 11.
“Ariana has completely moved on from Pete,” the insider close to Grande reportedly added. “What they had was in the past. If anything, Ariana would be cheering on Pete and Kim’s relationship since she ultimately wants Kim to find happiness too.”
Grande has longtime ties to the Kardashian family, as Kris Jenner made a cameo appearance in the entertainer's 2018 music video for "thank u, next."
