Ariana Grande turns down damehood to honor Manchester bombing victims: report

Ariana Grande turned down a damehood from Queen Elizabeth II, a report claims.

Grande, 25, was offered the title for organizing the One Love Manchester benefit after the tragic bombing at her May 2017 concert in the English city, The Sun reports, but turned it down to spare the victims' families' feelings.

A source told The Sun, "Ariana was flattered but said it was too soon. She explained she was still grieving. So were scores of families. She feared some affected might see it as insensitive. The committee wrote to her but she politely said no."

Another Grande insider claimed, "She was deeply moved and honoured. She didn't decline it as such but explained it was not the right time to accept."

Charlotte Hodgson, whose daughter, 15-year-old Olivia Campbell-Hardy, was killed in the terror attack, told The Sun that she appreciated Grande's consideration.

"It's a lovely gesture. She's right — maybe it is a bit too soon. She's lovely and would never do anything to hurt any of us."

Grande previously revealed that she's suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder and anxiety since the Manchester bombing.

"I don't think I'll ever know how to talk about it and not cry," she said.

A rep for Grande did not immediately return Fox News' request for comment.
