Ariana Grande may or may not have a boyfriend this Valentine’s Day, but she definitely has something fun going on that she’s ready to publicly flaunt. TMZ reports that Grande was seen making out with a man at Bar Louie in Northridge, California, on Saturday night. They were filmed, in fact, and the outlet ran the video.
TMZ has not identified who the mystery guy is yet, but the outlet did get intel on how the situation came about. She arrived with him and her friends at 1 A.M. and stayed for about 30 minutes. Grande just had water there, TMZ reports, while her friends drank. The guy she kissed “wasn’t instantly recognizable,” the outlet was told, and did not look like the last man she was rumored to be romantically involved with, Social House’s Mikey Foster. (Multiple sources confirmed to ELLE.com that Grande and Foster weren’t dating back in September, when the rumors first surfaced.)
Grande has not commented on the bar rendezvous on her social media.
Grande’s last public boyfriend was her ex-fiancé Pete Davidson. She talked to Vogue in an interview published last July about how she hadn’t been dating after their October 2018 split and was focusing on herself. “I think that this [Thank U, Next] is the first album and also the first year of my life where I’m realizing that I can no longer put off spending time with myself, just as me,” she said. “I’ve been boo’d up my entire adult life. I’ve always had someone to say goodnight to. So Thank U, Next was this moment of self-realization. It was this scary moment of ‘Wow, you have to face all this stuff now. No more distractions. You have to heal all this shit.’”
