Ariana Grande Leaves 'Toxic' Relationship
A fan on Twitter weighed in on the rumors that Grande is currently seeing Saturday Night Live star Pete Davidson shortly after her breakup with Miller. In the same tweet, the fan also mentioned the recent arrest of the hip-hop star who, earlier this month, wrecked his car on a power pole and fled the scene of the crime.
The tweet seemed to suggest that Miller was so heartbroken about the breakup and painted Grande as the bad guy, but the 24-year-old singer is not having it.
"[H]own absurd that you minimize female self-respect and self-worth by saying someone should stay in a toxic relationship because he wrote an album about them," the "Dangerous Woman" wrote on a statement. "I am not a babysitter or a mother and no woman should feel that they need to be."

The fan immediately apologized for jumping to conclusions.
