AceShowbiz - Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson have posed for their first photo together since confirming their romance rumors on Monday, May 28. The new couple got cozy together in a photo shared on Instagram by the "Saturday Night Live" star.
The adorable snap saw the lovebirds wearing matching "Harry Potter" robes, with Pete donning a Gryffindor sweater while Ariana sported a Slytherin sweater. Pete had his arm around the Nickelodeon alum as they posed for the camera. "the chamber of secrets has been opened...," Pete captioned the pic, to which Ariana responded, "u tryna slytherin (I'm deleting my account now)."
This arrived just days after the "Bang Bang" hitmaker confirmed their romance on the photo-sharing platform, sharing a picture of them roasting marshmallow together on Memorial Day. On the following day, Ariana was spotted supporting Pete at his stand-up gig at the Comedy Store in Los Angeles.
An onlooker told E! News that they were not afraid to show off their relationship. "She was in the audience in the back. Before he went on stage they shared a kiss. It was cute," the eyewitness told the site, adding that they later left in the same car after his performance.
Another insider shared that people around them thought "they're really cute together," adding, "People don't realize what a great sense of humor she has. It makes them a good match. They're having a good time."
However, some fans of Ariana were against their relationship, calling their relationship "toxic" because Pete is suffering from borderline personality disorder. It prompted the 24-year-old comedian to hit back at the fans, saying their relationship is not impacted negatively by his mental illness.
"Just because someone has a mental illness does not mean they can't be happy and in a relationship. It also doesn't mean that person makes the relationship toxic," he wrote on Instagram Stories. "I just think it's f***ed up to stigmatize people as crazy and say they are unable to do stuff that anyone can do. It's not their fault and it's the wrong way for people to look at things."
