Insiders close to the pair told TMZ that they decided to part ways, but have remained close friends.
But now, Ari has released a statement of her own on Instagram.
She wrote, "This is one of my best friends in the whole world and favorite people on the planet Malcolm McCormick. I respect and adore him endlessly and am grateful to have him in my life in any form, at all times regardless of how our relationship changes or what the universe holds for each of us.
"Unconditional love is not selfish. It is wanting the best for that person even if at the moment, it's not you," she added. She ended with a personal message for Mac: "I can't wait to know and support you forever and I'm so proud of you!!"
Even through a break up Ariana remains so incredibly respectful.
This is why we stan her.
