Ariana Grande was spotted making out with a mystery guy in a bar on the outskirts of Los Angeles. But who is he?
The “7 Rings” singer hit up Bar Louie in Northridge, CA, which is in the San Fernando Valley–way out on the outskirts of L.A. It was late Saturday night when Ariana rolled in with a group of friends around 1 am.
Eyewitnesses say that the group only stayed for about half an hour or so. Ariana’s crew of friends ordered wine and other drinks, but Ari wasn’t partaking. She apparently only ordered a water.
She was, however, very interested in the guy who sat next to her in a booth, as the two certainly spent some time all over each other. Ari and this mystery guy were making out like no one was watching.
But who is he?
So far, it’s unclear who this dude might be. People who spotted Ari at the bar didn’t instantly recognize the guy, so he clearly isn’t anyone super famous.
What we do know, though, is he definitely doesn’t look like Social House singer Mikey Foster.
Foster, who collabed with Ariana on the hit song “boyfriend,” has been at the center of romantic rumors with the pop star lately, although it’s been denied that the two are dating.
Foster and Ms. Grande sure hang out a lot, for sure. The pair have even been spotted holding hands at at times, and Foster wrote her a sappy birthday message back in June: “Ur one of the most incredible people the universe has to offer. I hope this year offers u nothing but the joy u deserve. Love u. Happy birthday.”
As speculation about Ari’s relationship with the singer started picking up, her brother, Frankie Grande spoke out to try and shut it down. He wrote on Twitter, “My sister is not in a relationship. Everyone relax. She is very much single.”
Apparently the tweet was in an effort to backtrack after saying that Ariana and Mikey went on a “double date” with him and his boyfriend, Hale Leon. Frankie’s “double date” comment just meant that they all went out for dinner, and people read too much into his joke.
So who’s the mystery man in the video? Time will tell – maybe Ariana will even namedrop him in a song a la “thank u, next.”
