You Tried It! Ariana Grande was NOT a Diva at ‘Stand Up to Cancer’

Another “source” strikes again, this time in an attempt to defame Ariana Grande’s character.

Following her appearance and performance on Friday’s live broadcasting of “Stand Up to Cancer,” reports began circulating that the 21-year-old was a "a total nightmare" backstage; set off by a story on The U.K. Daily Star.

The story claims the ex-Disney sweetheart yelled at crew members, dropped the F-bomb, and was a total “diva,” but the show’s executive producer and director is speaking on Grande's behalf, calling the reports "completely false."

“Ariana was wonderful to work with, very gracious and a consummate professional to our team and everyone at the Stand Up to Cancer telecast,” Joel Gallen tells E!

He added, "Her moving performance of ‘My Everything,' which she sang in honor of her grandfather who passed away from cancer, was one of the most emotional moments of the night. We were honored to have her join us."

Grande’s late Grandfather, whom she calls “my favorite person to ever exist,” passed away on July 22nd.

"Supporting a cause that is near & dear to my heart," she tweeted before showtime. "tonight I'm singing for grandps! I miss u."

The “Stand Up to Cancer” telecast was broadcast via 36 U.S. networks, as well as in Canada and overseas.
