Pop star Ariana Grande and fiancé Pete Davidson have called it quits, according to news reports.
Grande and the “Saturday Night Live” cast member were dating just a short time when they announced their engagement last May.
It’s unclear why at this point because neither has issued a statement on what happened, but TMZ is reporting that the decision was mutual and that both “felt the timing wasn’t right.”
The split follows the death of Grande’s former boyfriend, musician Mac Miller, in a reported drug overdoes last month.
You knew the writers at "Saturday Night Live" weren't going to let this one go.
Days after rapper Kanye West's White House visit with President Donald Trump, Alec Baldwin returned to the comedy show for the first time this season in a spoof of Thursday's headline-making meeting.
"I flew here using the power of this hat!" cast member Chris Redd, playing a rambling West, proclaimed, pointing to his "Make America Great Again" cap.
"This guy might be cuckoo," Baldwin, as Trump, said to himself in a voice-over. "I've been in a room with Dennis Rodman and Kim Jong Un, and they made a lot more sense than him."
Redd's West, echoing some of Trump's real-life comments, called himself a "stable genius" with a "high IQ" and "the best words."
"Oh, my God, he's black me!" Baldwin's Trump realized in an internal monologue.
Meanwhile, Kenan Thompson, playing NFL icon Jim Brown, mused to himself: "I played football with a leather helmet, and my brain is still working better than his."
The sketch ended with Baldwin's Trump declaring: "I love you, Kanye. We've a lot more in common than people know. We're both geniuses, we're both married to beautiful women, and we've both definitely been recorded saying the N-word."
“This is the most repulsive, disgraceful, embarrassing act of desperation & auctioning off of one's soul to gain power I've ever seen,” he wrote in a caption of a video of West’s White House visit. The video was a repost from writer and activist Shaun King.
T.I. claimed West invited him to tag along for the trip to D.C., but he declined.
“I refuse to associate myself with something so vile, weak, & inconsiderate to the effect this has on the greater good of ALL OUR PEOPLE!!!!” he continued. “At one time it was a pleasure to work alongside you... now, I'm ashamed to have ever been associated with you.”
T.I. went on to call West a “puppet” and a “lil cookie boy” and said his soul was “on auction.” He had a message for West’s fans, too.
“To all the people who follow Ye musically, socially, or even personally....who are confused, heartbroken, infuriated.... Let me make this clear... THIS (expletive) AINT COOL!!! THIS IS A MOVE YE MADE FOR YE!!! ... WE ARE NOT ON HIS MIND AS HE MAKES THESE COMMENTS AND DECISIONS,” he said.
T.I. ended his rant by telling his followers that he had reached his limit. “This is my stop,” he exclaimed. “I’m officially DONE!!!!”
T.I. wasn’t the only celebrity to call out the artist, although he recently agreed with part of West’s call to end the 13th Amendment, which abolished slavery. 50 Cent, Diddy, Jeffrey Wright and others also shared their criticisms of West’s meeting.

Singer and actress Selena Gomez has entered a treatment facility after two hospitalizations following her kidney transplant.
People reported that the 26-year-old singer had a panic attack during her second hospitalization. Each time, she was hospitalized for a low white blood cell count, which can be a side effect for kidney transplants.
“She has had a tough few weeks and the panic attack in the hospital was the tipping point,” an unnamed source told People.
E! News reported that Gomez’s treatment is helping her address ongoing anxiety and depression issues.
Gomez revealed in an Instagram Live in September that she had battled depression for five years.
“I think before I turned 26, there was like this weird time in my life (where), I think, I was kind of on autopilot for about five years,” she said while holding back tears, E! News reported. “Kinda just going through the motions and figuring out who I am and just doing the best I could and then slowly but surely doing that.”
According to an unnamed source, People reported that Gomez is undergoing dialectical behavior therapy, which uses mindfulness, emotion regulation and increases tolerance of negative emotion to help manage negative thinking and behavior.
“She realized she needed to seek additional help for her ongoing emotional issues,” the source told People. “She’s surrounded by close family and has a lot of support. She’s doing better now and is seeking treatment on the East Coast.”
After her Instagram Live, Gomez announced she was going on a social media break.
“As much as I am grateful for the voice that social media gives each of us, I am equally grateful to be able to step back and live my life present to the moment I have been given. Kindness and encouragement only for a bit!”

After being fired by Disney earlier this year, the man behind the “Guardians of the Galaxy” franchise has jumped from Disney-owned Marvel to the DC Universe.
Warner Bros and DC have hired James Gunn to write the second film of “Suicide Squad,” and he could find himself in the director’s chair, Deadline reported.
He was fired in July after old, controversial tweets came to light during the height of the #MeToo movement.
The tweets included comments that he at the time considered provocative, on topics of rape and pedophillia, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Many in the cast of the hit “Guardians of the Galaxy” films wrote an open letter to to Disney asking the company to reinstate Gunn. But Disney CEO Bob Iger, despite outcry from fans too said “I haven’t second-guessed their decision.”
“Suicide Squad” focuses on the villains of the DC Universe, including, Harley Quinn, the Joker, Deadshot and Killer Croc.
DC and Warner Bros. say Gunn’s script won’t be a sequel to the original film, but rather a new take on the anti-hero team, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
As for the next “Guardians of the Galaxy” movie, no one has officially been tapped to direct it, but some industry watchers says the director of “Thor: Ragnarok,” Taika Waititi, could be on a short list, Deadline reported.
Someone stole $80,000 and a handgun from Antonio Brown’s Florida apartment, a discovery the Steelers wide receiver made a day before he allegedly threw furniture from the 14th-floor balcony and nearly hit a toddler, a police report said.
A Sunny Isles Beach Police Department report on the theft, which was obtained by WPXI in Pittsburgh, said Brown called police on April 23 to report that the money, which had been in a backpack in his closet, was missing, as was a 9 mm pistol.
Brown had just returned from an 11-day trip out of town when he found the money and gun missing, according to the report. He had been living in the apartment alone since separating from his girlfriend two weeks earlier, he told police.
The money was put in the bag on April 11, he said, a day before he went out of town. When he returned, he found the apartment had been cleaned and laundry had been washed and put away in the closet, the report said.
Security footage showed three women entering and leaving the apartment on April 13, the report said.
The women were housekeepers who were allowed in by security officers after they called Brown, and someone other than Brown answered his phone and gave the women permission to enter the apartment.
The next day, April 24, police said they responded to a call from Brown, who was "agitated" and saying he believed security officials at the complex "set him up." He allegedly threw furniture over the balcony in anger, which prompted a lawsuit from a family saying he nearly hit a young child in the process, the lawsuit said.
The owner of the building also has filed suit against Brown to recoup the cost of the damages to the apartment and furniture.
The day after that, April 25, police responded to another call from Brown to say his black Rolls Royce had been stolen. When police arrived at his apartment to take the report, Brown opened the door, said, "I found the car," and closed the door, according to a police report obtained by WPXI.
Further attempts to speak to Brown were not successful, police said.
The Steelers have declined to comment on the lawsuits against Brown.

The Queen of Soul’s history with the AMAs – as a host, winner and performer – was acknowledged at the beginning of the segment, before a smiling Knight emerged to draw the notes out of “Amazing Grace” in the essence of Franklin.
Gospel mainstay Donnie McClurkin took the crowd to church with a rousing “Climb Higher Mountains” (also the recessional song at Franklin’s funeral) and was followed by Winans delivering a passionate “Mary Don’t You Weep,” Ledisi belting “How I Got Over” and gospel duo Mary Mary and a spirited backing chorus clapping and grooving through “Old Landmark.”
Earlier in the show, Taylor Swift commanded the winner’s circle with an armful of awards, including artist and tour of the year.
