Love Is Dead: Ariana Grande and Ricky Alvarez Split

They're making sweet music together again.

Ariana Grande has called it quits with boyfriend Ricky Alvarez. According to Entertainment Tonight, the “Dangerous Woman” songstress and the backup dancer have parted ways after a year of dating.

Grande, 23, seemingly hinted at a breakup after removing all traces of Alvarez, 25, from her Instagram. She also recently debuted a new hairdo — introducing bangs to her signature pulled-back ponytail — that may be considered as a typical “post-split haircut”.

“Life is wild,” Grande cryptically tweeted on Saturday (July 23, 2016). “And change is fucking fantastic.”

Word of Grande and Alvarez dating first surfaced last July when they were seen kissing in that infamous surveillance video of the songstress licking donuts at a local café in Lake Elsinore, Calif. Sources confirmed their relationship a month later.

Previously, Grande dated rapper Big Sean for eight months.
