What rhymes with Ariana Grande? Naya Rivera reveals in her new book, Sorry Not Sorry, that she once found the “Side to Side” singer at then-fiancé Big Sean’s house prior to their April 2014 split. Grande later dated Big Sean.
“We’d been fighting for five straight days while he was traveling, and then on the one day that he was back in L.A., he said he didn’t want to see me,” Rivera recalled of the moment she learned of the rapper and Grande.
“‘Well, a‑‑hole, I’ve got a key to your house,'” the actress — who was in a relationship with the hip-hop artist from March 2013 and April 2014 — writes about her thoughts at the time. “I walk in, go downstairs, and guess what little girl is sitting cross-legged on the couch listening to music? … It rhymes with ‘Smariana Schmande.’”
Although the Glee alum, 29, didn’t flat-out name Grande, it’s pretty clear she’s the “little girl” Rivera was talking about.
As previously reported by Us, Grande started dating Big Sean following his split from Rivera in April 2014. The two called it quits on their romance eight months later in April 2015.
According to Rivera, when she and Big Sean called off their engagement, she wasn’t really a part of the decision.
“I learned that I was no longer getting married from the internet, and at the same time as the rest of the world,” Rivera shares in her memoir, revealing that Big Sean’s publicist issued a statement they had split. “Not only were we no longer getting married, but apparently we weren’t even together anymore.”
The actress went on to marry Ryan Dorsey three months later in July 2014 — and during the same ceremony that she had originally planned for her wedding to Big Sean.
