Ariana Grande Caught Kissing Rapper Mac Miller in L.A., Fans Panic
On Sunday night (August 21), the possibly-maybe couple hit up Katsu-Ya in Los Angeles for a romantic sushi dinner date, where, according to witnesses, at one point the Dangerous Woman singer laid in Miller's lap after sharing a few sweet kisses.
Their meeting comes weeks after news broke that Grande had reportedly split up with her backup dancer beau, Ricky Alvarez, in July.

This isn't the first time the two have sparked rumors of romance: In 2013, the rapper and the singer got close in the video for Grande's first hit, "The Way," a track on which he was also featured.
But the two denied speculation of real-life love, and when Complex asked Grande about the kiss in 2013, she said Miller's breath "wasn’t bad if you like cigarettes and whiskey. It’s certainly a distinct taste." She also referred to him as "one of my best friends" at the time.
Grande rapped along to Mac Miller's "Dang!" in a late July Snapchat video. In early August, the pop star turned up to watch Miller's performance at West Virginia University. The rapper also teamed up with Grande to remix her current single, "Into You." And a day prior to getting caught dining out together in Los Angeles, Miller joined Grande in New York City to sing "The Way" onstage at Billboard's Hot 100 Fest.
Meanwhile, Ariana's fans are split over the news — check out a roundup of their reactions (and snap judgments) below.
