This is so amazing.
A fan site for Ariana Grande reports that the 23-year-old has offered to cover the funeral costs for those killed at the suspected terrorist attacks at her Manchester concert. So far, Ari’s camp has yet to confirm or deny the rumor, as she’s keeping a low profile since the attacks.
Shortly after Ariana finished her set at the Manchester Arena, a bomb went off — later confirmed to be a suicide bomber — went off outside the venue; local police later confirmed that it claimed the lives of 22 people and injured more than 100 others.
Hours after the incident, Ariana broke her silence on Twitter to express her anguish over the ordeal.
“Broken. From the bottom of my heart, I am so, so sorry,” she tweeted. “I don’t have words.”
Many of the victims of the attack have already been identified.
The youngest known victim is eight-year-old Saffie-Rose Roussos, who was attending the concert with her mother and older sister, both of whom are being treated for injuries following the attack.
Other known victims include parents Marcin and Angelika Klis, a Polish couple who were at the venue to pick up their children from the concert when they were killed by the explosion, reality TV alum Martyn Hett, 32-year-old Kelly Brewster, 15-year-old Olivia Campbell, 26-year-old John Atkinson, mothers Alison Howe and Lisa Lees, 18-year-old Georgina Callander, 50-year-old Jane Tweddle-Taylor, Michelle Kiss — whose daughter’s photo went viral after she was snapped in the comforting arms of a police officer, 14-year-old Nell Jones, 14-year-old Sorrell Leczkowski, and an unnamed police officer.
At this time, there are still several victims whose identities have not yet been confirmed.
Our thoughts remain with Ariana, the victims, and all the people affected by this horrific tragedy.
