Ariana Grande is immersing herself in the work after canceling her months commitment with Pete Davidson.
"She stays strong and focuses on work right now, but her friends and family are definitely worried about her," a PEOPLE source tells of the singer, days after the separation was confirmed on Sunday.
Grande, 25, went back to work on Tuesday, performing "The Wizard and I" during the final recording of Wicked & # 39;s special 15th anniversary, to be aired on NBC later this month. In the event, which also marked her first public appearance after the split, the pop star was left without her 3-carat engagement ring and $ 93,000 and had her finger tattoo "Pete" covered.

The couple ended their commitment almost five months after the Saturday night live The 24-year-old star proposed in June, only a few weeks after they started dating after the breakup of Grande in May from rapper Mac Miller, who died in September of an alleged drug overdose. He was 26 years old.
"Ariana has gone through many things and emotionally things have been very positive for her this year," says the source, adding that the demise of their commitment "has been very difficult for both."
Although the break is still fresh, the chances of a reconciliation are not completely ruled out.
"They are very unpredictable," says the source. "It's over for now, but in a few days it would not be shocking to see them again."

On Wednesday, Grande revealed that she plans to take a break on the Internet after her new maiden status. "It's very sad and we're all trying very hard to keep going, I love you, and thank you for always being here," he wrote in an Instagram story deleted since then.
Meanwhile, Davidson may be taking time off from work before SNL is scheduled to return on November 3.
Previously, the comedian was scheduled to perform at Temple University in Pennsylvania on Wednesday, but it was canceled at the last minute; Adam DeVine was reserved as a replacement. "Unfortunately, Pete Davidson will no longer be able to make our welcome show for personal reasons," the school said in a statement.
After the news of their separation, Davidson was seen for the first time in New York on Wednesday, when he was photographed arriving at the home of his mother Amy.
