Ariana Grande decided to sit this one out.
The Sweetener singer was expected to attend the 2018 Emmys on Monday to support her fiancé Pete Davidson, making what would have been her first public appearance since
Fans grew excited over the weekend when a preliminary seating chart surfaced showing the couple’s place cards next to each other in Los Angeles’ Microsoft Theater. Come award night, however, Ari was nowhere to be found.
According to the 25-year-old’s rep, she decided to take the night off to “heal and mend” instead — and super-fiancé Pete ended up staying home with her, despite his show Saturday Night Live landing 21 nominations.
The rep explained in a statement to People:
“Contrary to reports, Ariana will not be attending the Emmys tonight. Pete has also opted to not attend to be with her in New York.”
We don’t blame her for wanting to lie low.
Based on the rest of the statement, though, it may be a while until fans get to see Ariana in the flesh again. The rep added:
“Given the events of the past couple of years, Ariana is going to take some much needed time to heal and mend. She will be staying close to home and using this period to spend time with her loved ones and work on new music without deadline. She thanks her fans for their understanding.”
Come back when you’re good and ready, girl.
