Ariana Grande Apologizes To Ex Ricky Alvarez For His ‘Thank U, Next’ Mention

Ariana Grande just made an apology to one of the exes she thanked in her new single, thank u, next.

After Ricky Alvarez, who the pop star dated from 2015-2016, posted a video of himself on his Instagram Story listening to the breakup bop and zooming in on his confused face after his mention (“Wrote some songs about Ricky / Now I listen and laugh”), Ariana gave the former backup dancer an apology.

She posted it on her own IG Story, writing:

“HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA I’m sorry u got the worst line it was meant v lovingly.” 

But it looks like there were no hard feelings after all! Ricky, who is said to have previewed the song before its release, responded with a second message on his story:

“nothing but gratitude.

thank u, next.

(those songs are fire tho…you’re welcome)”
