Ariana Grande may still be battling rumors over what truly caused the "One Last Time" singer's split from boyfriend Big Sean, however, after Grande's ex, Nathan Sykes, revealed in an interview that he and Grande are still close and "talk all the time," sources close to the former Nickelodeon star are slamming the claims, in addition to dissing reports that suggest the songstress is getting back with Sykes.
Hollywood Life reports that Grande, 21, and Sykes, 22, dated briefly in 2013 prior to Grande's romance with "IDFWU" rapper Big Sean, however, now that the former The Wanted singer has revealed in an interview that he and Grande are very friendly and still speak regularly, sources close to the "Bang Bang" singer are squashing those rumors, suggesting that Sykes is merely trying to get Grande's attention.
"We're all really confused as to why Nathan keeps saying that he and Ariana talk so much," a friend of Grande's revealed to the site, referring to Sykes' recent interview with WonderWall in which he claims he and Grande talk "all the time."
The source adds, "They don't talk to each other at all."
However, the insider did note that while the exes may not be as close as Sykes has led fans to believe, the duo are still friendly with one another and Grande wishes her ex the best in his career.
The source notes that Grande has only "good things to say" about Sykes, however, that doesn't necessarily mean that they are on speaking terms.
The news comes only days after Grande came under fire in the headlines for her abrupt split from beau Big Sean in which outlets suggested that Grande may be going back to ex Sykes after her breakup from the rapper.
While both Grande and Big Sean's sources claim the other was "selfish" and "immature" in their relationship, Grande sources were quick to deny that the "Break Free" singer will be making plans to get back with ex Sykes so quickly after her romance with Big Sean.
