The “I Don’t F–k With You” rapper, 30, and the “While We’re Young” singer, also 30, “broke up in mid-December,” a source exclusively tells Us Weekly.

“I wouldn’t say it was amicable,” says the insider. “But now they are civil towards each other.”

As for whether he’s seeing his former flame Grande, 25, the source adds: “Big Sean is single right now, from what Jhene has heard.”

The “Bounce Back” wordsmith and the “Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored” songstress were spotted together on Wednesday, February 27.

According to The Shade Room, the pair left in his car after spending several hours in a Los Angeles recording studio. In photos obtained by the outlet, Grande attempted to hide her face with her dog while Sean appeared to be smiling in the driver’s seat.

The Nickelodeon alum and Big Sean (real name Sean Michael Leonard Anderson) ended their relationship in October 2015 after eight months of dating, but that didn’t keep the “7 Rings” singer from referencing her former flame in one of her new tunes.
