Ariana Grande's grandfather has died.

The 21-year-old singer has been left heartbroken after her grandpa passed away last night (22.07.14) following an ongoing battle with ill-health.

Taking to her Twitter account today (23.07.14) Ariana broke the devastating news to her fans, tweeting: ''Thank you for your continuous love and light over the past few weeks ... we did lose my favourite person to ever exist yesterday, my grandpa.

''If only you all knew how amazing he was ... my heart hurts so much. It's beyond broken but I got to hold his hand and watch him find his peace.

''This is the hardest thing imaginable but I'm so grateful that I got to spend this time with him and my family. Taking care of him & loving him.''

The 'Problem' hitmaker's brother Frankie is currently taking part in 'Big Brother US', but she admits her sibling won't be told about their grandfather's death until he has completed his stint on the gameshow.

She tweeted: ''asked grandps last week if he wanted us to pull frankie off bb & he said ''no way! he's gotta play the game even tho i don't understand it'' (sic).''

Meanwhile, the brunette beauty was forced to cancel a trip to London recently after she rushed to her grandpa's bedside when it became apparent his health had deteriorated.
