Is Ariana Grande engaged? Singer confuses fans with ring on finger as she's supported by boyfriend at One Love Manchester

In the wake of the devastating terror attack at her gig in Manchester, Ariana Grande has been supported by loyal boyfriend Mac Miller.

The singer was joined on stage by her rapper beau at the One Love Manchester benefit gig on Sunday evening.

The couple performed duets The Way and Dang much to the delight of the crowd gathered at the Emirates Old Trafford cricket ground.

But a huge sparkler spotted on 23-year-old Ariana’s finger sparked speculation that the couple are engaged.

Twitter was abuzz with fans wondering whether Mac, 25, had popped the question.

Ariana returned to the stage solo on Sunday evening.

The pop star hadn’t performed live since a bombing claimed lives at her concert in Manchester two weeks ago.

But last night, she made a triumphant return to the spotlight as she took centre stage at the fundraiser.

Ariana was introduced onto the stage by her manager Scooter Braun, who said it was two years ago today that she first played in Manchester.

She took to the stage with Be Alright, wearing her “One Love Manchester” jumper and smiling at the crowd before joining hands with her dancers.

Braun said she called him and said that she couldn’t live with herself if they did nothing following what happened at her gig.

The star-studded One Love Manchester benefit concert was organised by Ariana to raise money for those affected by the Manchester terror attack.

22 people were killed and more than 100 injured when a suicide bomber detonated his device in the foyer of the Manchester Arena at the end of Ariana’s concert on Monday, May 22.

Ariana postponed the remainder of her Dangerous Woman Tour and flew back home to Boca Raton, Florida the day after the atrocity, but immediately vowed to return for a benefit concert in aid of those affected by the bombing.

She said: “I’ll be returning to the incredibly brave city of Manchester to spend time with my fans and to raise money for the victims and their families.”

Ariana said music is something that should heal and bring people together, and she wanted One Love Manchester to be a “safe space” for her fans and music lovers to come together.

“From the day we started putting the Dangerous Woman Tour together, I said that this show, more than anything else, was intended to be a safe space for my fans,” she said.

“A place for them to escape, to celebrate, to heal, to feel safe and to be themselves. To meet their friends they’ve made online. To express themselves.

“This will not change that.”

“When you look into the audience at my shows, you see a beautiful, diverse, pure, happy crowd. Thousands of people, incredibly different, all there for the same reason, music.

“Music is something that everyone on Earth can share.

“Music is meant to heal us, to bring us together, to make us happy.

“So that is what it will continue to do for us.”

Organisers hope to raise at least £2m toward the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund. All the artists are performing for free while concert promoter Live Nation has underwritten the cost of the event.

There had been speculation the One Love Manchester concert could be cancelled in the wake of Saturday night’s terror attack in London, but Ariana’s team said on Sunday morning the show would go ahead with “greater purpose” now.

Ariana’s manager Scooter Braun said: “After the events last night in London, and those in Manchester just two weeks ago, we feel a sense of responsibility to honor those lost, injured, and affected.

“We plan to honor them with courage, bravery, and defiance in the face of fear. Today’s One Love Manchester benefit concert will not only continue, but will do so with greater purpose.

“We must not be afraid and in tribute to all those affected here and around the world, we will bring our voices together and sing loudly. I am pleased to say we have the full support of Greater Manchester Police and the government and are assured the safety of all those attending is the highest priority.

“All artists involved have been unwavering in their support this morning and are determined to carry on with the show. We ask the strong city of Manchester and the world to join us in making the statement that hatred and fear will never win. Today we stand together.”

Fans who had attended the original Ariana concert on May 22 were entitled to apply for free tickets to the event.

Ticketmaster set aside 14,200 free tickets to go to those survivors of the May 22 attack who felt up for going to the benefit gig. Unfortunately, the site was hit by thousands of fraudulent claims when would-be touts registered for the free tickets despite having already sold on their original tickets via secondary sites or private sales.

This meant Ticketmaster has spent the last three days verifying the genuine fans desperate to get their free tickets and throwing out applications from chancers hoping to make a quick buck .

All the tickets to the gig made available to the public were sold out within six minutes of going on sale at 10am on Thursday 1 June.
