According to media reports, Pop star Ariana Grande has offered to cover the funeral costs of the victims of Monday’s terror attack.

A dedicated twitter account called “Ariana Updates” shared a post saying: “News on Ariana: Ariana has reached out to the families who’s loves ones died last night….she is gonna pay for the funerals!”

Grande, 23, said she was “broken” after her gig ended when a suicide bomber detonated an explosive device in the foyer of the 20,000 capacity venue, leaving 22 dead and 64 people injured.

Twenty of the injured are said to be critical.

Ariana Grande’s concerts at London’s O2 Arena on Thursday and Friday have not yet been postponed or cancelled.

The venue has confirmed it is in contact with promoters about a final decision, following the terror attack at the pop singer’s Manchester concert on Monday.

A statement shared on the London O2 Arena’s Twitter page read: “Thanks to everyone who has been in touch.

“We understand and appreciate you are waiting for information as to whether the shows are going ahead Thursday and Friday at the O2.

“We’re still in contact with the tour promoters regarding a final decision.

“As yet the tour is not officially postponed or cancelled, despite media reports.

“We promise that as soon as we have clear information we’ll let everyone know.

“Thank you again for bearing with us in what is a difficult time for all involved.”

The 23-year-old pop singer, who said she was left emotionally “broken” by the explosion that killed 22 people at her Manchester Arena show, is reported to have flown home to Florida.
