Ariana Grande 'Beyond Broken' After Death of Grandpa

The 'Problem' singer expresses her deep sadness over the death of her beloved grandfather on Twitter.

Ariana Grande lost her beloved grandfather who died on July 22 after battling with cancer. The 21-year-old singer took to Twitter to pay tribute to her "favorite person" and share her grief to her more than 16 million followers.

"I lost you to the summer wind," Ariana tweeted along with a broken heart emoji, "thank you for your continuous love & light over the past few weeks... we did lose my favorite person to ever exist yesterday, my grandpa."

"If only y'all knew how amazing he was.. my [heart] hurts so much. It's beyond broken, but I got to hold his hand and watch him find his peace," she continued, "this is the hardest thing imaginable but I'm so grateful that I got to spend this time with him & my family. taking care of him & loving him."

Ariana continued to mourn online by sharing pictures of her grandfather from the past. Some photos dated back to the 1940s captured "the most handsome!" grandfather in his younger years. She also posted a photo of an intimate final moment she and her grandfather shared at his bedside.

A source close to Ariana revealed to the final words Grandpa Grande said to the "Baby I" singer. The source said, "The last thing he told her was to honor her work commitments and to go to NYC and sing her heart out on 'Good Morning America'. Once the taping was done, she broke down in tears and cried on Ryan Seacrest's shoulder..."

Ariana previously wrote on Twitter that her grandpa insisted on not pulling Frankie James Grande, Ariana's brother, off the show "Big Brother" he currently participates in. She wrote, "Asked grandps last week if he wanted us to pull frankie off bb & he said 'no way!' he's gotta play the game even tho i don't understand it." She later deleted the tweet and wrote, "Watching @frankiejgrande talk abt grandps after reading our letter on the live feed. sobbing / laughing hysterically. love u frankie so much."

#StayStrongAriana and #RIPGrandpaGrande are currently trending on Twitter in the United States.
