- Pete Davidson recently opened up about his mental health following his high-profile split from Ariana Grande, claiming that people have been bullying him.
- “No matter how hard the internet or anyone tries to make me kill myself. I won’t,” he wrote on Instagram. “I’m upset I even have to say this.”
- Early Tuesday morning, Grande re-posted his statement on her Instagram story and added her own defence of Davidson.
- “I really don’t endorse anything but forgiveness and positivity,” she wrote. “I care deeply about Pete and his health. I’m asking you to please be gentler with others.”
Ariana Grande has come to Pete Davidson’s defence after her ex-fiancé opened up about getting bullied.
“I really don’t endorse anything but forgiveness and positivity,” she wrote on her Instagram story. “I care deeply about Pete and his health. I’m asking you to please be gentler with others, even on the internet.”
Grande added her own commentary while re-posting a statement that Davidson made on Monday. The “Saturday Night Live” comedian made a rare post on Instagram to condemn the hate he’s received since his high-profile split from Grande in October.
“I’m trying to understand how when something happens to a guy the whole entire world just trashes him without any facts or frame of reference,” Davidson wrote. “No matter how hard the internet or anyone tries to make me kill myself. I won’t.”
Grande encouraged her fans to leave Davidson alone, while noting, “you truly don’t know what anybody is experiencing ever.”
“Please let whatever point you’re trying to make go,” Grande concluded. “I will always have irrevocable love for him and if you’ve gotten any other impression from my recent work, you might have missed the point.”
Grande recently released the music video for her hit single “Thank U, Next,” which namedrops Davidson and three of her other exes: “Even almost got married / And to Pete I’m so thankful,” Grande sings in the first verse.
The video sees Grande pasting a photo of herself with Davidson into a scrapbook and writing positive comments, such as, “I love u always.”
Grande and Davidson got engaged shortly after they began dating in May. Neither has publicly discussed the reasons for their split.
