Singer Ariana Grande and comedian Pete Davidson have reportedly ended their relationship and called off their engagement, according to a report from TMZ.

Sources close to the couple told TMZ that the decision to split was a mutual choice, and that they both felt the timing wasn't right.

Just weeks after they first started dating around May, Davidson proposed to Grande with a 3-carat diamond ring that reportedly cost around $100,000.

Grande joked that her Instagram account was just for Davidson updates.

Still, Grande and Davidson have appeared to be quite close recently, with Davidson referencing her and their relationship in a segment on "Weekend Update" during SNL's September 29 season premiere.

The 25-year-old singer's new video features over three minutes of footage of her pet pig while the song plays. Ariana's ex-boyfriend, rapper Mac Miller died last month, September 7th from a suspected overdose.

Meanwhile a source told People magazine no one is surprised by the breakup.

Since then, the singer has been largely absent from social media, cancelling scheduled performances and delaying her tour indefinitely.

Davidson's reps did not immediately respond to EW's requests for confirmation. Us Weekly: "Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson Split, End Their Engagement After Four Months".

According to E! News, her manager Scooter Braun had to apologise to the crowd after revealing Ariana wouldn't be gracing the stage as planned. She wrote, "it's just been a tough month. i'm trying to get my work done and get back to normal and it's hard and i'm human and exhausted".

"If we break up - and we won't. And while I was frustrated, being the manager, my wife, being who she always is, just looked at me and she goes, 'She needs this time'".
