The Wanted’s Nathan dating Ariana Grande

Nathan Sykes

The Wanted’s Nathan Sykes is dating his duet partner Ariana Grande.

The singer and Victorious actress recorded their collaboration Almost Is Never Enough to accompany the film The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. Love has apparently blossomed between the pair, with Nathan smitten with his 20-year-old girlfriend.

“It’s very, very new,” an insider told Us Weekly, with another adding: “Nate sends her flowers every day.”

Ariana has hit the headlines for her love life several times lately. She split from Jai Brooks of the comedy and stunt group The Janoskians earlier this year and then posted a picture of herself with Justin Bieber online. The Canadian singer was planting a kiss on her cheek in the image, causing many of his fans to become incensed.

“Everyone, girls are allowed to be friends with guys,” she later tweeted. “I’m a lady. Chill out.”

Almost Is Never Enough will be on Ariana’s upcoming record Yours Truly, which is due out at the end of the month. She has previously discussed how much she enjoyed teaming up with Nathan on the track.

“Nathan just sang the hell out of it. I thought it was Brian McKnight. I’m like, ‘Who is this?’ Honestly, I wasn’t expecting it. I didn’t know he had that in him,” she told MTV News. “I saw him perform live on one of the radio shows that we were at together, and I was like, ‘Damn, he can sing.’ This song I think will pleasantly surprise a lot of people. It’s very beautiful and very emotional and I love, love, love what Nathan did to it. It was a great, great, great surprise.”
