They made people take notice with online PDA and even making their red carpet debut. By September, the news of Mac’s death hit everyone hard and the couple sat out the 2018 Emmys to “take time to heal”.

Something is going to happen, and she’s going to be like, ‘What the f–k is this thing doing around?’ For right now, it’s rocking.”
“It was way too much too soon,” a Grande source told People of the singer and Davidson’s split on Sunday. “It’s not shocking to anyone.”
