American singer Ariana Grande has been in the news quite a lot recently, mainly because of her love life. From her engagement to Pete Davidson to the death of ex-boyfriend Mac Miller - it's safe to say the Dangerous Woman star has had a whirlwind of a year.

The controversies don't seem to leave her though. Recent reports suggest that Ariana has been accused of plagiarism. Rappers Soulja Boy and 2 Chainz have called her out for allegedly copying their work for her latest track 7 Rings, reported Business Standard.

Soulja Boy alleged that Grande stole from his song Pretty boy swag. He replied to a tweet in which Grande thanked her friends who were featured in the 7 Rings video, writing, "Give me my credit. Period." He then followed up with the message, "You're a thief."

Soulja Boy has previously accused rapper Drake of stealing his musical style and earlier this month, Grande was accused of stealing lyrics by rapper Princess Nokia for the same song.

Ariana's previous release thank u, next also sparked quite a controversy which led to the Side to Side setting the record straight once and for all by responding to the comments being made.

Following the end of a long-term relationship and one brief engagement last year, Ariana confirmed that she doesn’t plan to date again for a long time. Responding to a recent article with a headline that read, ‘Who is Ariana dating now?’ she humorously responded saying, “Can they tell me too?” before making it clear she is not seeing anyone. “Spoiler: for the rest of this year/probably my life: It’s no one. Please refer back to this tweet for future questions,” Ariana quipped.
