After a year of dating, Ariana Grande is is apparently ready to "Break Free" from her boyfriend Ricky Alvarez.
"She broke up with him," a source tells E! Online. "He didn't cheat or anything, they just found it difficult to make it work. They are still friends though."
The 23-year-old singer is "happy to be single and do her for a little while," adds the source.
Grande and the backup dancer were first spotted together during her infamous doughnut-licking incident last summer.
Ariana has previously been linked to hip-hop artist Big Sean.
