Relationship With Ariana Grande
In the music video for their song ‘Boyfriend’, Mikey Foster and Ariana Grande portrayed jealous lovers, kissing each other for their fans to see. This has given way to rumours that the two are dating. According to an article published in The Blast, they have been enjoying each other’s company and want to see where it leads. However, they are apparently far from being in an actual relationship and “just feeling things out.”
Grande previously was in a relationship with comedian and actor Pete Davidson. Her most recent album, ‘Thank U, Next’, was released not long after their very public split. Furthermore, the pop star has lost her former boyfriend Mac Miller, who passed away due to an accidental overdose on September 7, 2018.
