Ariana Grande has reportedly offered to pay the funeral costs for victims of Monday night's deadly attack at her concert in Manchester.

On Tuesday, a Twitter fan account called Ariana Updates! tweeted,

News on Ariana: Ariana has reached out to the families who's loves ones died last night.... she is gonna pay for the funerals!

The news has not been confirmed yet. Elite Daily reached out to Ariana Grande's team for comment but did not hear back by time of publication.


The attack at Manchester Arena killed 22 and injured at least 59 people.

Fans have already started responding to the reports that the 23-year-old reached out to victims' families and offered to pay for the funerals.


On Tuesday, ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack, and according to the latest reports, the suicide bomber was "likely" not acting alone.

Shortly after the deadly explosion, Ariana Grande, who was not injured in the attack, tweeted that she was "broken."


She has since suspended her Dangerous Woman tour and returned home to Boca Raton, Florida with her mother.

A source told E! News,

They were met at the airport by Ariana's boyfriend, Mac Miller. When Ariana got off the plane, Mac greeted her on the tarmac with a long hug followed by a kiss. Mac also gave Ariana's mom a hug. It was a very emotional reunion and they stood talking for a minute before getting into the car. Ariana looked exhausted and like she didn't get much sleep. She seemed like she just wanted to get home and be with her loved ones.

All of the victims have not yet been named. The first to be identified was 18-year-old Georgina Callander.


The youngest confirmed fatality so far is 8-year-old Saffie Rose Roussos.

The third confirmed fatality was 26-year-old John Atkinson.

According to People, as of Wednesday morning, several more victims have been identified: Alison Howe, 44, Lisa Lees, 43, Olivia Campbell, 15, Kelly Brewster, 32, and Megan Hurley.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims' families and friends and all those affected by the horrific attack.
