While many people have been on high spirits during the Christmas holidays and the New Year, Big Sean has been down due to a recent loss. Now, he spends his time making happy moments with girlfriend Ariana Grande, while keeping out any further distractions.
The Christmas holidays weren’t able to give Big Sean enough good cheer, as he hears news of his grandmother, Mildred’s death on Dec. 19, 2014 at a ripe old age of 93. A few days later, Big Sean took to Instagram to share his tribute for his grandmother. And through all the pain and grief, he had Grande to lean on.
My grandma passed away a couple days ago. I haven't said anything to anyone because honestly I feel like she's still here. I definitely can feel her consciousness. Im having a hard time accepting her death, but I must acknowledge my grandma's life, a true hero. She was a black female Captain in World War 2 (one of the 1st), got her degree at West Virginia State University, and her Masters degree at U of M. After school she became a police officer in Detroit, which at the time was very rare for women to be officers in Detroit. Then she became a caring teacher and counselor. She was the best grandma anyone could ever ask for. From the Sunday Dinners, home cooked meals, and how special she made us feel on our birthdays by baking us the cakes we loved most. She put her heart and more into anything she was involved in. She gave as much as she could to her family and the world! She completely made something out of nothing. When I was growing up, there were people interviewing my grandma about her life because she's done and seen so many amazing things. She supported me so much in every aspect and part of my life, even when I went against what was becoming traditional in our family, and didn't go to college to pursue music. She made a better life for me and the rest of my family, and I will forever be grateful I got to know and be loved by such an amazing woman! I'm so proud of her. She was truly a treasure to this world and everyone she came in contact with. She's the reason why I'm so passionate about giving back. Her spirit will live through her family. We miss and love u so much Grandma!
As he tries to move forward, he starts by spending a vacation on Lake Tahoe with Grande during the New Year. But later, he and Grande were shocked that they were hounded with questions of them breaking up, which they promptly denied.
So, what started the rumors in the first place?
According to a source from HollywoodLife.com, throughout their holidays and even during their vacation, Big Sean has been receiving phone calls and messages from his exes and other female friends who have been giving him their support over his grandmother’s death.
Though Big Sean may have been grateful for their support, he wasn’t all that thrilled when he saw that Grande was getting jealous by the minute. So, throughout their holiday vacation, Big Sean kept his mobile phone turned off most of the day and gave Grande his full attention. The couple then slammed the breakup rumors by posting photos they took during their vacation over at their respective Instagram accounts.
“[Big Sean] loves this girl big time and all he wants to continue doing is spending time with her and being lovebirds and incredibly romantic. He’s got more trips like that in store because he knows she loves that kind of stuff and it brings them both much closer to one another,” a source revealed on HollywoodLife.com.
