Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson have split and ended their engagement.

Grande and Davidson had a whirlwind romance. They began dating in May and their relationship was initially described as "casual," but that quickly changed. The couple announced a few weeks later in June that they were engaged.

Before they started dating, both Davidson and Grande got out of long-term relationships. Davidson and his girlfriend Cazzie David  broke up a few weeks before he and Grande became a couple. The "No Tears Left to Cry" singer and Mac Miller ended their relationship around the same time after dating for two years.

Since the moment Grande and Davidson's relationship hit the social media airwaves, the two of them packed on the PDA and support for one another. Davidson and Grande both got tattoos that were symbolic of the other. Early in their relationship, Davidson inked Grande's "Dangerous Woman" symbol behind his ear, although he got it covered up a few days ago. 

The "God Is a Woman" paid tribute to Davidson's late father by tattooing his New York Fire Department badge number on her foot. Davidson's dad, Scott Davidson, died in the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks.

Take a look below at some of their cutest moments as a couple during their relationship.

Things go from 0 to 100 when Pete debuts not one, but two tattoos as a tribute to his girlfriend of only a few weeks. The 24-year-old opts for Grande's initials on his right thumb and an image of the black bunny mask the singer wears on the cover of her 2016 album Dangerous Woman on his neck.

In early June, Pete performs a stand-up comedy set at the Hollywood Improv, where he took a moment to shout out Ari. An eyewitness recalls, "He started saying how he felt so lucky like he won the lottery and couldn't believe he was so lucky... After that, he kind of got into more of a comedy act, but it was pretty sweet because that was the most genuine and happy he seemed during the whole thing."

Ariana supported Pete at Saturday Night Live and wrote, "I love you like Kanye loves Kanye." 

Leading up to their breakup, Grande remained out of the spotlight, especially after Miller's death on Sept. 7. On Oct. 13, she pulled out of performing at a gala. It would have been her first performance since September.

Her team said in a statement to E! News that she was going to "take time to heal" when she and Davidson skipped out on the 2018 Emmys. The statement said, "She will be staying close to home and using this period to spend time with her loved ones and work on new music without deadline. She thanks her fans for their understanding."
