"It has not been an easy few months," the source tells Us of the "Problems" singer, 21, who recently lost her grandfather. "Jai just wasn’t as supportive as he could have been," the insider adds.

The songstress took to her Twitter on Monday, Aug. 4, revealing similar feelings with a cryptic message. "You learn a lot about love, life and the people around you during a time of crisis," Grande began the long post.

"July was painful for many reasons but of all the personal loss I suffered last month, the loss of my grandfather, a true gentleman, was the only one that truly mattered," the "Bang Bang" singer continued. "I thank everybody who was here for me when I needed them as the ones who weren't really broke my heart," Grande concluded the post, adding, "August is about to be a beautiful, beautiful month. Looking forward to all the good coming up."

Onward and upward, indeed—"She's gearing up for her album release so she's focused on that," the insider tells Us.

Grande and Brooks, a member of the Australian YouTube comedy and prank group The Janoskians, first stepped out together in August 2012. The couple then called it off a year later only to rekindle last May, where they were spotted making out after Grande performed at the iHeart Radio Music Awards.
