Did Ariana Grande and Jennette McCurdy Ever Feud?
After Ariana Grande and Jennette McCurdy stepped away from their hit Nickelodeon series, Sam & Cat, last summer, fans began to speculate that something might have occurred between the show's two female stars to lead to the cancellation.
With some distance between the show ending its one-season run and the May premiere of her upcoming Nteflix series Between, McCurdy is now opening up about those rumors.
"I just feel that, you know Ariana and I were and are extremely close and very like-minded in a lot of different ways and then, sorta as the show dissolved, everybody wanted to find some sort of hidden meaning in our relationship," she told E! News. "Some like drama and I think we butted heads at times but in a very sisterly way. She knows me so well and I know her so well that I think it was unfortunate that things kind of got misconstrued."
The 22-year-old notes that having worked intimately with Grande on the series did lead to a "family dynamic" and adds that they formed an "impenetrable" friendship during the series. So, it would, seem there are no hard feelings.
"There is certainly like a friend dynamic but then once you're around that person for Sam & Cat, once we didn't have child labor laws we could work like 16 hours a day so you are around these people constantly and it's just natural that you're gonna have ups and downs," she added. "But you bond so much and you're so close that you can't go through that experience and...I can't imagine a world where you would not come out extreme friends. I mean I have bonds with both Miranda Cosgrove and Ariana that are impenetrable."
