Yesterday we shared an article on the reports of Ariana Grande previously stating that she hoped all her fans would die. That was according to an insider, and the story was picked up by Daily Mail and NY Daily News. We still do not know if those reports are true or not.
HOWEVER, there are now reports that Grande is offering to pay for the funerals of the Manchester victims.
According to a fan account, Grande has been reaching out to each of the 22 families, and is offering to cover all the expenses of the funerals for her late fans, who were mostly young girls.

Hello Magazine reports:
Her team led by manager Scooter Braun, also issued a statement: “Tonight, our hearts are broken,” it read. “We mourn the lives of children and loved one taken by this cowardly act. We are thankful for the selfless service tonight of Manchester’s first responders… We ask all of you to hold the victims, their families, and all those affected in your hearts and prayers.”
Ariana, 23, has since returned to her home in Florida. She was spotted landing at Boca Raton, where she was met off the plane by her boyfriend Mac Miller. “She looked distraught and like she had been crying,” an onlooker told People. “They hugged for a while before they headed to a waiting car. Ariana’s mum Joan was with her.” Another source close to Ariana added: “It’s so, so sad. She loves her fans and is absolutely crushed and devastated, as you can imagine. She can’t believe this happened. She just wants to be with her family and loved ones right now.”
The pop icon has not commented on the validity of these claims yet, but fans seem to believe it is true and they are more than praising her for her compassion.
Britain is now on high alert, with the New York Times reporting that Prime Minister Theresa May has raised the threat level from severe to critical and deploying the military to locations across the country. Now it’s being reported by a Twitter account that Grande will pay for the funerals of the victims of the Manchester bombing. Bustle has reached out to the singer’s representatives for comment, but did not receive an immediate response.
Grande tweeted out after the attack that she was heartbroken and had no words.
from the bottom of my heart, i am so so sorry. i don’t have words.

Take this with a grain of salt, as it has not been confirmed by Grande….However, if the rumor is true, she has gained some respect from me.
