Ariana Grande is developing quite the reputation as a pint-sized diva, at least according to the rumor mill.
Most recently the New York Daily News reported that an "industry insider" overheard the 21-year-old while she was visiting a Manhattan radio station this summer. Grande was apparently "all smiles" while signing autographs for fans, before she got into the elevator. "And as soon as the doors shut she said, ‘I hope they all fucking die,'" the insider revealed.
Grande's rep told HuffPost Entertainment that the NYDN's report is "completely untrue. Ariana loves her fans!"
On Tuesday, Grande took to Twitter, indirectly addressing (and brushing off) the claim:
man some of these rumors that have been coming out about me lately actually have me laughing out loud.... 😂😂😭 really can't take em seriously

Recently, the "Problem" singer caught flak for the way in which she allegedly dealt with the Australian media. Grande's team reportedly instructed the press to avoid questions about ex-boyfriends and dating, comparisons to Mariah Carey, rumors of a collaboration with Justin Bieber, her grandfather's recent passing, her canceled Nickelodeon show and her former co-star Jennette McCurdy.
