Ariana Grande and Big Sean are parting ways after eight months of dating.

Us Weekly reported the news from the joint statement of the former couple's representatives.

"They both deeply care for each other and remain close friends," the reps told Us Weekly. "We kindly ask that the media respect their wish for privacy regarding this personal matter at this time."

As for the reason behind the breakup, sources close to Grande and Big Sean, whose real name is Sean Michael Leonard Anderson, claim that the two artists' respective hectic schedules didn't pave well to a smooth sailing relationship.

"They made the decision to part ways because their conflicting touring schedules would keep them apart over the next year," Us Weekly's insider revealed.

Rumors about the real score between Grande, 21, and Big Sean, 27, started going around last August, E! News reported. The duo confirmed their relationship in October when the "One Last Time" songstress talked about the "Control" rapper in an interview with Telegraph magazine. According to Grande, Big Sean was "one of the most amazing men in the world, and that includes my grandfather and my brother," the news outlet quoted.

Since then, the two have been spotted going public with their romance. They were often snapped flaunting PDA-filled moments on their respective Instagram accounts and in red carpet appearances, particularly in the 2015 Grammy Awards, E! News added.

In an appearance on "On Air With Ryan Seacrest" earlier this year, Big Sean described Grande as "very special" to him, explaining, "Everything she has going on is good with her, everything I have going on is good with me, everything between me and her is good, and I'm just going to leave it at that," the news outlet quoted.

Another interview, this time with Billboard, saw Big Sean saying that he wanted to keep his relationship with the former Nickelodeon star private as much as he can. During the press tour for his album "Dark Paradise," the rapper also revealed how his romance with Grande began, and the real reason why he got attracted to the brunette beauty.

"We started out as friends, but that was the thing. It progressed from there, and that's the first time I've ever been in a situation where we started as friends and it progressed, so that's what it is," Big Sean told the hosts of The Real. "What I like in women is when they got drive and focus, you know what I mean? That's what I like, I attach to, I appreciate, because I got drive, I got focus, too. And every day I'm like, 'You gotta get it.'"

Grande just ended the North American leg of her Honeymoon tour, which will kick off once more in Europe in September, E! News noted. Big Sean, on the other hand, is also set to embark on a concert tour around the U.S. early this summer.
