Washington D.C., July 27 (ANI): Singer Ariana Grande and her boyfriend Ricky Alvarez have reportedly parted ways after a year of dating.

E!Online quoted a source, as saying, "She (Ariana ) broke up with him. He didn't cheat or anything, they just found it difficult to make it work. They are still friends though."

"She is happy to be single and do her for a little while," the insider added.

The 'Dangerous Woman' hit-maker and Alvarez first sparked link-up rumours last year when the duo was spotted kissing in the infamous surveillance video of her licking donuts at a donut store in Lake Elsinore, California.

Grande had earlier hinted at the split on social media via number of tweets and deleting Instagram posts with Alvarez.(ANI)
