Back in 2014, when Ariana mentioned her falling out with her dad a year prior, to Seventeen magazine- she said it was the hardest time in her life. It was hard for her to accept loving her dad even without getting along for a long time. She also added as Edward was her dad she had a lot of traits from him and didn’t like that about herself.
Later in 2016, Ariana mentioned she hadn’t seen much of her father still but still loved him.
