EXCLUSIVE! Ariana Grande's MTV Meet And Greet Disaster Wasn't That At All! Here's The TRUTH About What Went Down!

ariana grande meet and greet misunderstanding

Who doesn't want to meet the celeb they totally idolize?!

Well, meet and greets don't always go as expected when the unexpected happens, which is exactly the case in this misunderstanding for a fan who recently met Ariana Grande at an MTV, Pepsi, and VH1-sponsored event.

A story from a young girl just came out about once meeting Ariana back in 2011 at another event, and she couldn't have had a better experience as she got to meet her idol and take pics with her.

But fastforward to this August when the young girl met Ariana again in connection with the MTV VMAs. She won a contest and took her sister with her to meet Ariana at the L.A. Forum in Inglewood after producing art showing just how much she loves Ari.

Unfortunately, the girls weren't too happy with the outcome of the meeting. They claim they were kept waiting before meeting with employees at MTV who asked the fans to tape a reaction to meeting Ariana before they met her.

When Ariana made her way to the fans, they claim she was icy, seemed uninterested in being there, and had a handful of assistants with her. The young girl says fans were then told rules about meeting Ariana which included that they were to give all gifts to her security and not her, and that they were only allowed to take a selfie with her. The young fan says Ariana only met them for a matter of seconds before running off.

HOWEVER, on the other hand is Ariana's side of the story. And an explanation about WHY she ran off that anyone could sympathize with.

The picture the young fan drew in order to win the contest was one of Ariana and her grandfather (above). And since Ari recently lost her grandfather, the pain is still there and it wasn't something she was ready to deal with…especially so unexpectedly.

In a series of DMs with a fan, which Ariana's team have EXCLUSIVELY confirmed to be real, the singer explains why she left the meet and greet so abruptly. She ALSO revealed that she planned to send the young fan a letter, but had missed her by the time she was ready to go back and see her.

No doubt Ariana loves her fans. And anyone who has lost a loved one can understand that having to revisit that loss so suddenly would be hard.

Check out the convo where Ariana explains the misunderstanding (below)!

    Crock. Of. Shit.

    Sound like BS. I would have just said I had the squirts or something. She's just getting a big head that's all.

    The LEAST she could've done is excused herself instead of walking away. If she really wanted to give the fan that bullshit letter she would've done it earlier or at least have it given to her instead of "missing them".

    What a liar. She started acting bitchy the MOMENT the fans met her. The fans didn't show her the album (and it wasn't of her grandfather) until the end of the meet and greet. And now using her grandpa's death as an excuse? First cheated on Jai AGAIN and now lying to get a better image. Ew.

    She needs a new hair stylist asap.

    This chick is full of sh$&.

    She's getting a big head and she better be careful cause it's the fans that either make or break her! The fall is really painful, Ariana, careful!

    And say that the last time when I had demonstrated my support to Jennette McCurdy for her satirical sketch about Ariana Grande. Saying that Ariana Grande was a true ungrateful bitch in real life! And there was all these hysterical fans who was trying to harass people and was trying to make us shut up…

    Re: kat – "who were there trying to harass people"

  12. Not surprised says – reply to this


    Well, Ariana does have the same manager Justin Bieber has. I guess she's learning quickly to be a little spoiled/ungrateful b!tch. Be careful Ariana, you just had 5 minutes of fame and treated your fans like crap might end those seconds of fame you have left quickly.

  13. Ariana sucks says – reply to this


    Ariana is just a wannabe Mariah Carey. She needs to take a seat and get rid of that stupid diva behavior. She's really nothing special. Least Mariah Carey was original and has money and years to be a diva. This flat chested girl just started singing and she's about to expire soon with the treatment she's giving her fans. SHe sucks!

  14. sure says – reply to this


    She has an answer for everything, doesn't she? It's never her fault. Even though there have been multiple accounts of people meeting her and saying how she was a "diva" meaning a bitch. Even though she has more than one co-star on more than one show that dislike her. Nope. Not perfect, innocent Ariana. Damage control must be on constantly.

    You do not want to stay in Invlewood,very high crime are.

  16. 16

    Smells like bullshit to me, trying to cover up bad publicity.

  17. Erik says – reply to this


    Well, this is certainly not the publicity you´re waiting for in the week you release your new album. She simply doesn´t understand that it are the fans who buy her music.

    Ariana has in no time destroyed her carefully created cute, nice image. She makes a mess of her love life, she surrouds herself with shady people like Big Sean, Chris Brown and Miley Cyres, she´s dissing her fans and she dresses in a way a large part of her fans don´t appriciate. I´m afraid she´s loosing fans like hell at the moment.

    I think she will pay a high price for all this in the coming weeks via very disappointing sales of her new album. She has got to learn a few things and preferably very quickly or she might be out of business soon. Scooter Braun has next to Justin Bieber yet a second problematic case at hand that needs education and training.

  18. Maureen says – reply to this


    Well, sales predictions for My Everything can be adjudsted significantly downwards.

    How to destroy your carreer being a very talented singer?
    Ariana shows how you can do that in just couple of weeks.

  20. Francis says – reply to this


    A blow for here carreer just a the moment she releases her sophomore album. Timing couldn´t have been worse. This girl needs urgently media training.

  21. Janet says – reply to this


    Ariana ran off BEFORE she saw artwork.

  22. Marin says – reply to this


    The story is going all around the internet, it´s a terrible PR disaster.

  23. janet says – reply to this


    Ariana left BEFORE young fan presented Ariana with her winning artwork. Ariana is trying to cover her ass.

  24. Brian says – reply to this


    The problem with this story is I see all kinds of stories all over the Internet about how she just doesn't care about fans and has no time for them. This is nothing but an excuse. Now her album isn't even selling that well at all. Not for all the hype she's been getting.

  25. Aleesha says – reply to this


    If she is still mourning why go to the VMA's and she looked pretty happy with her new boyfriend she is probs going to cheat on next week. Her and her brother are self absorbed airheads. She doesn't deserve her fans. Most of her fans are 12 year old boys that think she is the same age as them LOL She used to earn her fans with talent and unquiness now it's all booty shaking and trying to be sexy.

  26. Victor says – reply to this


    Re: Aleesha – YUP!

  27. Nic says – reply to this


    Funny, she always seems to come back and the other party has already left. Isn't that how it went with the photographer, too? She is so full of sh*t.

  28. Katie says – reply to this


    Pretty sure this is fake. Seriously, why would Ariana admit to something like that?

  29. jc says – reply to this


    Hey show respect to ariana Grande ok so shut up what if people called you that will you like that
