An insider reportedly told Variety that Grande was "insulted" by the way she was treated.

Despite the fact that they supposedly reached "a compromise whereby '7 Rings" would be part of a medley, ' the superstar still made a decision to skip the whole show after the 'producers insisted that the second song be of their choosing'.

Variety reports Ariana Grande will not be attending the Grammys.

The 25-year-old, who has been nominated for Best Pop Vocal Performance ("God Is a Woman") and Best Pop Vocal Album (Sweetener), was due to perform at the February 10 ceremony in Los Angeles. They include Camila Cabello, Cardi B, Dan + Shay, Post Malone, Shawn Mendes, Janelle Monáe, Kacey Musgraves, Brandi Carlile, Miley Cyrus, H.E.R, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Little Big Town, Diana Ross, J Balvin, Young Thug, Ricky Martin, Arturo Sandoval, Katy Perry, Dolly Parton and Katy Perry.

However, Grammys producer Ken Ehrlich later insisted that it's not possible to host everyone on their own, even though the "Royals" singer - who still attended the ceremony - had a "great record" in "Melodrama".

The song - which was released along with a video last month - is featured on the chart-topper's new album titled, Thank U, Next which is set to be released on Friday. Instead, producers reportedly offered the New Zealand singer a spot in a Tom Petty tribute, which she declined.

Meanwhile, Taylor, who is also nominated in the Best Pop Vocal Album category, is also thought to be giving the Grammys a miss.
