Do Ariana Grande + Pete Davidson Have Matching Tattoos? And 5 Other Clues That Yes, They’re Really Dating
Earlier this week, in news that, if true, could easily rank among Hollywood's most WTF couples, reports surfaced that Ariana Grande was dating Saturday Night Live star Pete Davidson.
It's not so much that they would (or wouldn't) make a good pair, but that it came so out of left field. They don't exactly operate within the same circles, and are both fresh out of longterm relationships: Grande with Mac Miller, who she announced her split from two weeks ago, and Davidson with Cazzie David, the daughter of Larry David.
Random as it may seem, though, eagle-eyed fans have already begun to piece together a mounting pile of evidence that the two are, indeed, dating. Check out the 6 biggest clues below.
They've Been Liking Each Other's Instagrams
Pretty innocuous, but still worth noting.
Both Have Been Sporting a Lot of Suspicious Cloud Imagery
Grande has been making frequent use of the cloud emjoji on her Instagram and Twitter accounts, which at first might seem like some veiled promo for her upcoming album, Sweetener...except that she and Davidson have also both been seen rocking cloud phone cases. (See hers here, and his here). A little too coincidental, no?
They May Even Have Matching Tattoos
Davidson recently posted an Instagram photo flaunting a new, mini-cloud tattoo on his middle finger. Then, mere days later, Grande showed up to the Billboard Music Awards with what looks like the same tattoo in the same place — pretty much hard proof that they have something going on.
Davidson Was Seen Wearing Grande's Merch
During the closing credits of the May 19 episode of SNL, Davidson was seen wearing what looks like a "No Tears Left to Cry" sweatshirt.
And A Manchester Bee Hat
As far back as last month, Davidson shared an Instagram photo of himself wearing a bee hat captioned with bee emojis — a symbol that has come to represent the Manchester attack that left 23 dead at Grande's 2017 concert. Sure, he could just be showing his support, but in context, it seems significant.
AND Hanging Backstage at the BBMAs
He was also caught on video hanging out backstage in the same area as Grande at the Billboard Music Awards, where she performed. You can catch him here, walking past in the beginning, and again waiting near the door of Grande's trailer at the end.
