Justin Bieber gave Ariana Grande a peck on the cheek before a concert on Thursday (August 9) and apparently all hell broke loose on the internet. No, this isn’t a picture of Ariana and Justin after he’s had a rough night – Ariana had to delete the pic in question after she got too much hate via Twitter. This is a sweet shot of the ‘Baby I’ singer and her grandpa, just to calm the fans down.
After Ariana took her photo down she tweeted, “Everyone, girls are allowed to be friends with guys. I’m a lady. Chill out,” she wrote.
It started out innocently enough. Along with the photo Ariana had written, “You’re crazy and nonna says thank you, she loves you,” referring to an earlier tweet she had sent out letting Justin know her grandma was smitten. “My grandmother is now in love with @justinbieber,” she had written.
And Justin‘s fans don’t need to worry – Ariana has made it clear she’s happily dating Aussie YouTube star Jai Brooks.
