Us Weekly reports the fan-favorite couple split very quietly and amicably a few weeks ago due to their crazy schedules.

“They made the decision to part ways because their conflicting touring schedules would keep them apart over the next year,” a source tells the publication.

Both Grande’s and Big Sean’s reps confirmed the news in a joint statement, adding, “They both deeply care for each other and remain close friends. We kindly ask that the media respect their wish for privacy regarding this personal matter at this time.”

The news comes as a big surprise to fans of the famous couple who started dating in Oct. 2014. Both Grande and Big Sean were very public about their love, continuously gushing about one another during interviews and always posting about each other on social media.
