Pop star Ariana Grande has reportedly offered to pay for the funerals of those who lost their lives in a terror attack that happened at her concert at Manchester Arena on Monday night. According to Unilad, there are “strong rumors” that suggest that the Dangerous Woman singer will be offering financial support to families forced to bury their loved ones following this devastating terror attack.
Grande was not physically injured in the attack that claimed the lives of several of her fans. Shortly after she learned what happened, she sent out a tweet (below). That tweet has been Retweeted over one million times and has over 2.5 million likes on it so far. Sources have said that Grande is “in hysterics” following the incident.
Grande, 23, arrived back in the United States on Tuesday with her mother Joan. The two landed safely in Boca Raton, Florida, where Grande lives. She was met at the airport by her boyfriend, Mac Miller. The two shared what appeared to be an emotional kiss before getting into an SUV.
Authorities have confirmed that 22 people lost their lives in Manchester after a nail bomb exploded in the foyer area of the arena. Nearly ten dozen more people were injured in the blast, which went off around 10:30 p.m. local time. Police have identified the man that they say is responsible for the attack as 22-year-old Salman Abedi. He was among the deceased. Law enforcement is working diligently to uncover any additional information about the attacker and/or any other people that he may have worked with. Since Monday night’s tragedy, the terror threat level in the UK has been raised to “critical.”
Among the deceased are Sorrell Leczkowski, Nell Jones, Martyn Hett, Michelle Kiss, Jane Tweddle-Taylor, Kelly Brewster, Marcin and Angelika Klis, Olivia Campbell, John Atkinson, Alison Howe and Lisa Lees, Georgina Callandar, and the youngest victim to be named thus far, 8-year-old Saffie-Rose Roussos.
