Every time a celebrity couple gets announced, the public and the media goes crazy. It is so heartwarming to see that love can still be found even in an industry as complicated as Hollywood.
However, not every couple that got engaged made it to the altar. Just when the public thought these couples will last forever and their wedding will be one to remember, they called it quits.
Ariana Grande And Pete Davidson
Ariana Grande and comedian Pete Davidson made headlines when they announced their engagement as they were only a couple for a few months before they decided to get hitched.
Grande dedicated a song on her album Sweetener to Davidson back in 2018, and the two got matching tattoos and a pig, according to Insider.
In October 2018, the couple announced that they were splitting up. But the two have ended things on good terms, with Grande saying that she is grateful for Davidson in the lyrics to her hit song "thank u, next."
