Ariana Grande reportedly offers to shoulder the expenses for the funerals of all the fans who tragically met their demise in the Manchester terrorist attack at her concert on Monday.
Following the tragic Manchester attack at Ariana Grande’s concert, sources revealed that the pop star is keen on helping the families of the victims by paying for their funerals.
According to reports, the “Side to Side” singer was “broken” after her Dangerous Woman tour in the UK ended violently, taking away lives of her fans as young as eight.
It has been revealed that some of the unfortunate victims of the terrorist attack were children and teenagers including eight-year-old Saffie Roussos and 15-year-old Olivia Campbell.
The 23-year-old songstress was performing at the Manchester Arena for the UK leg of her Dangerous Woman world tour. Shortly after Ariana Grande left the stage, a suicide bomber detonated a bomb just as her young fans were leaving the venue.
Reports revealed that 22 people were killed and 120 were injured during the violent attack. The police were able to identify the suspect as 22-year-old Salman Abedi.
Ariana Grande, who was unharmed, condemned the terrorist attack and expressed her apologies to those affected by it.
from the bottom of my heart, i am so so sorry. i don't have words.

Ariana Grande’s official team also shared the same sentiment and released a statement showing their support to the victims and their families.
“Tonight, our hearts are broken. Words cannot express our sorrow for the victims and families harmed in this senseless attack. We mourn the lives of children and loved ones taken by this cowardly act. We are thankful for the selfless service tonight of Manchester’s first responders who rushed towards danger to help save lives. We ask all of you to hold the victims, their families and all those affected in your hearts and prayers.”
The traumatizing events that took place during the Manchester bombing allegedly left Ariana Grande heartbroken, thus, prompting her to do whatever she can to help the victims’ families.
Although reports of the pop star paying for the funerals of the victims has yet to be confirmed, many were quick to assume that the offer has been made and even expressed their admiration to Ariana Grande.
One fan pointed out that such gesture is something to be expected from Ariana Grande, saying, “I expected this from her actually I had no doubt she was going to do it once she got her bearings together.”
Another fan wrote, “I’m not surprised Ariana is doing this she’s literally the most caring person in the world.”
Some even gave encouraging words for the pop star, “None of this is her fault in any way shape or form. She has such a beautiful heart. Bless her.”
A fan also admired the singer for being kind-hearted, saying, “She isn’t the reason why this happened, but she became an angel to all those families and their loved ones. God bless you, Ariana!”
Despite the positivity of Ariana Grande’s rumored gesture, it is worth noting that such claims have yet to be confirmed by the singer and her team.
