“Selena can be a delicate flower, especially because she has had constant medical struggles, but Justin’s engagement and quick marriage threw her off guard and hit her hard,” a music source tells PEOPLE.
“She and Justin have been on and off for years, although they were so young when it all began,” adds the insider. “Justin was her first big love, and she isn’t over him.”
What about Justin? A source told E! News that Bieber feels “conflicted and confused” about it. “They have both had emotional struggles and bonded over that in the past,” the insider shared.
“Ariana made the final decision,” a source said.
“It was time to realize this wasn’t the right time for them and Pete is incredibly heartbroken. Pete is still so in love with her. He wanted his whole world to revolve around her but she was emotionally unavailable.”
TMZ reports that Ariana has returned her engagement ring to Pete. Sources close to Ariana tell us she’s already returned the nearly $100k engagement ring Davidson gave her back in June.
The ring — a 3.03 carat diamond set in platinum — was a one of a kind, made specifically for Grande, and took weeks to complete. We’re told there was no struggle over who’d keep the ring.
He bought it in contemplation of marriage, and she was quick to fork it over.
Are they fighting? NO! A source says, “She and Chris still get along great. But it seems that their friendship doesn’t extend beyond co-parenting their kids.”
A source added that Chris “wasn’t fazed” about not being invited.
