TV stardom didn't spoil blue-collar boy Pete Davidson, but insiders say that hooking up with Ariana Grande just might.
According to Life and Style magazine, people around the couple are sending up warning flares. One insider says, "Ariana's family is urging her to pump the brakes and slow down long enough for Pete to sign a pre-nup, She has much more money than he does, but all she can think about is getting married. No one is saying Pete is a gold digger, but if she isn’t careful, she could lose a lot."

BETHENNY FRANKEL: Boyfriend Won't Have Autopsy
There's a lot of mystery surrounding the sudden death of Bethenny Frankel's sometime beau Dennis Shields -- and it won't be solved, since his family has declined an autopsy.
Shields was found dead this month in his Trump Tower apartment, and rumors of a drug overdose have been swirling. The 51-year-old's family has refused to allow an autopsy due to "religious objections," and since there's no criminal investigation, the New York City coroner's office agreed.
Bethenny and Shields had dated on and off for several years, but a source tells People magazine they "were not always exclusive." She tweeted her feelings on Sunday, saying, “It’s excruciating -- sudden death is no closure and constant questions and memories. Our relationship is current so it’s painfully raw. Trying to stay healthy and move through it with tears and close friends."
