To say that singer Ariana Grande and SNL actor Pete Davidson have had an interesting relationship is an understatement, but the two have definitely had their moments throughout their short-lived, whirlwind romance. Pete has always been very vocal about his mental health struggles, but on Dec. 15, he went even further by sharing a now-deleted note on his now-deleted Instagram in which he seemed to be contemplating suicide. Once his ex-fiancée got wind of the news, Ariana took to social media to let Pete know she plans on being there for him, even if she’s not his number one anymore.
“I’m downstairs and I’m not going anywhere if you need anyone or anything. I know [you] have everyone [you] need and that’s not me, but I’m here too,” Ariana posted in a now-deleted tweet. Though she doesn’t explicitly direct the tweet to Pete, it looks as though her response to the situation was intended directly for him. Considering he supposedly blocked her from his social media, however, we wonder if the message did, in fact, make its way to him.
Just before her message to Pete, Ari also posted another now-deleted tweet where she apologized for her initial joke tweet about the feud between Kanye West and Drake, which sparked a conversation about mental health that prompted a reaction from Pete as well. “Man, I’m so sorry I told a dumb joke. I really didn’t mean any harm. All I want [is for] everyone to be healthy and happy. So desperately. Please. My god,” Ari tweeted her apology for the way the situation snowballed into where it is now.
In Ariana’s message to Pete, she mentioned that she’s “downstairs” — could that possibly mean that she’s waiting for Pete at NBC Studios, which is where SNL broadcasts from? That remains to be seen, but what we do know is, she’s willing to put aside the BS and be there for her ex in his time of need. Good on you, Ari.
