Ariana Grande and Big Sean

The couple, famous for their PDA-packed performances, broke up in April after almost nine months together. In June, Grande wrote an empowering essay about the double standard women face when it comes to relationships. "What I meant when I said what I said about not being Sean's ex is that I am tired of living in a world where women are mostly referred to as a man's past, present, or future PROPERTY/POSSESSION," she wrote. "I... do not. belong. to anyone. but myself. and neither do you."

Unfortunately, we both lead incredibly hectic lives that force us to spend a majority of our time apart. I will always admire and respect Tiger. He and his beautiful family will always hold a special place in my heart."

The country superstars swiftly divorced in July after four years. "This is not the future we envisioned," they said in a statement. "And it is with heavy hearts that we move forward separately."

"Marriage is a tough business, and we gave it our best college try," she told Cosmopolitan. "I had a great relationship with an amazing man, so I know what good is. I have a great launching pad for the future. I will never take that for granted."

"I have a boyfriend who knows how to settle me. He puts his hand on my chest and tells me boring stories," she wrote. "On one of our first nights together, I woke up apologizing for my snoring and he pulled out two earplugs he had worn to bed so he could hear what I was saying. It was one of the most romantic gestures I have ever seen."
