Grande, 20, followed up with a tweet explaining why the duo were trying to stay mum on their budding romance.
“We hesitated saying anything as people can be a bit insensitive but thank u ? we value all of your happiness, thank you for valuing ours,” she wrote. The two teamed up to record the track “Almost is Never Enough” for the “Mortal Instruments” soundtrack, and the song is also featured on Grande’s No. 1 album ,”Yours Truly.”
“Honestly, I couldn’t ask to work with a more talented vocalist than Ariana,” Sykes told MTV News in early August after collaborating with his now girlfriend. “I have so much respect for what she’s just about to do, and I think it’s a very exciting time for both myself and Ariana for slightly different reasons.”
Actually, the two have been rumored to be an item since they recorded a duet for the film Mortal Instruments. The pair had always denied their relationship until the recent photos of them surfaced of them holding hands. They had no choice from the confess about their relationship status.
They do seem like a cute couple, even though they had to hide it for so many weeks.
