They say once you go black, you can’t go back. Well, Ariana tried a little vanilla for a while (Pete Davidson) but candid photos snagged of her in the streets saw her spending some good, quality time with chocolate in the form of her ex-boyfriend, Big Sean.
The former lovers tried to keep it on the downlow, but savvy photographers got the goods:

TSR STAFF: Thembi! @ThembiTV_ & Tanya P. @TanyaxPayne _____________________________________ #TSRExclusive: #Roommates! Exes #ArianaGrande and #BigSean were spotted together the other night. As you can see in the pictures above, the two were ridin’ round together and Ari’s dog was there too so issa family affair! _____________________________________ The two were reportedly in an LA studio together for several hours, and following that, Sean was waiting for her outside and they left together in his car. _____________________________________ Ariana and Sean dated for a cool minute back in 2014, and since their break up in 2015, they’ve both had completely separate relationships. Sean’s most recent relationship was with #JheneAiko, and Ari’s most recent relationship was her engagement to #PeteDavidson. _____________________________________ Could the two be rekindling their flame, or simply making music together? Alexa, play thank u, next! 📸: Backgrid
Fans promptly took the internet in defense of Jhené Aiko, since she was Big Sean’s last ex-girlfriend before Ariana…

Really Big Sean?? Imagine, leaving a whole Jhenè Aiko for Ariana Grande?! Smh, it's fine, some time later she'll be singing that "he wasn't a match" and we'll get a lit album from Miss Jhenè?? pic.twitter.com/a6TjbTD16s

But, honestly, I don’t see what all the fuss is about, like these people right here:
Jhene cheated on her husband to get with big Sean you really lose em how you get em THIS IS REAL GOING OUT SAD LMFAOOOOOOOO

Lol I love Jhene more than Ariana but it doesn’t seem like there was any foul play in this situation to take sides. I see Jhene as the type of woman to send love to the both of them if they do end up back together instead of talking her down. We should do the same

Y’all are annoying saying big Sean left jhene for Ariana when him and jhene broke up months ago maybe even over a year now? And Ari’s been single for only like 5 minutes? Do y’all not see the timeline ???Like why are y’all making this connection? Make it make sense lol pic.twitter.com/QudrUvCwGH

So let’s get this straight. Big Sean & Ariana grande was in a relationship, Jhene aiko started hanging around them & then Big Sean and jhene started dating. Now last night big Sean and Ariana was spotted together again. If anything Ariana ain’t do nothing but get her man back?? pic.twitter.com/syiWKNZbOU

I’m seeing jhené stans slander ari & I’m seeing ari stand slander jhené. 1st of all: ari & sean could just be friends. 2nd of all: why do y’all always insist on slandering talented women for no god damn reason. 3rd of all: I stan both & will continue to support both bc this is bs pic.twitter.com/GgbBQGLKAS

Jhené is not notable or famous enough to really warrant all that attention, and honestly, the two reuniting and hanging out in a studio could be the start of something again. Or it could just be business: They are after all professional musicians.
That being said, if Ariana and Sean are back together, I wouldn’t be mad or surprised. Ariana is a serial monogamist so you knew that once she and Pete broke up that it wouldn’t be long before she found a new boo thang.
