Ariana Grande has discussed her recent break-up, stating that no woman should stay in a “toxic relationship.”

Grande was writing in reference to her own relationship with Mac Miller, an American rapper, singer, and record producer from Pittsburgh. Her comments came in response to a Twitter user who said that Grande dumping Miller was “the most heartbreaking thing.”

The tweet that she was replying to was from Elijah Flint and read as follows: “Mac Miller totalling his G wagon and getting a DUI after Ariana Grande dumped him for another dude after he poured his heart out on a ten song album to her called the divine feminine is just the most heartbreaking thing happening in Hollywood.”

Understandably, Grande wasn’t pleased with this statement and replied with: "I am not a babysitter or a mother and no woman should feel that they need to be. I have cared for him and tried to support his sobriety and prayed for his balance for years (and always will of course) but shaming/blaming women for a man's inability to keep it together is a very major problem.

"Let's please stop doing that. Of course I didn't share about how hard or scary it was while it was happening but it was.I will continue to pray from the bottom of my heart that he figures it all out and that any other woman in this position does as well."

Both Grande and Miller were seeing each other for around two years. Miller, whose real name is Malcolm James McCormack met Grande on the video shoot for their duet The Way in 2013.

The pair also came together for the One Love Manchester gig, after one of Grande’s gigs was the victim of a terrorist bombing.

Flint later apologised to Grande, stating: "I in no way think that you are the cause of Mac's short comings and we all have our demons to keep at bay, I'm very sorry I hurt you and I'm sorry you feel my tweet stigmatises women for ending a toxic relationship that wasn't my intention at all.

"I think every woman is equal to a man and has the same exact right to pursue their happiness to the fullest despite the backlash they might receive, including you."

Grande then replied to Flint again, saying: "Thank you for hearing me, I appreciate your response very much - sending you love."
