Ariana Grande's lyrics might have gotten sasier by the month but, deep down, she's still very much the same deeply caring person she has always been. In fact, she showed up at her ex-fiance Pete Davidson's office on Saturday after the comedian had made a social media post saying he 'really [doesn't] want to be on this earth anymore.' Pete had made the post just hours before at the time — he has deleted it since — but that didn't stop Ariana from showing up at 30 Rock to check on Pete.
While she was there, she tweeted, "I'm downstairs and I’m not going anywhere if you need anyone or anything." The 'God is a Woman' singer followed it up with another tweet writing: "I know u have everyone u need and that’s not me, but i’m here too. I really didn’t mean any harm. All i want is everyone to be healthy and happy. So desperately. Please. My god."
Ariana wasn't the only one checking on Pete, though, as a New York City police officer also visited the studios of NBC in Midtown Manhattan and, according to them, Pete was accounted for and rehearsing in preparation for the night's new Saturday Night Live episode, reported The New York Times.
Ariana, 25, told the SNL star that she is here for him, and also apologized for a 'dumb joke.' She wrote: "man i’m so sorry i told a dumb joke. i really didn’t mean any harm." The sad dumb joke happened to be a reference to Ariana's comment on the very recent, very public feud between her and rapper Kanye West after the latter opened up about his mental health issues, in lieu of his Twitter feud with fellow rapper Drake.
In Pete's narrative, he weighed in on the Ariana-Kanye dispute saying he was 'disgusted' by what has been said online. He also claimed to be proud of Kanye for opening up about his issues, and that indicated that he was far from impressed by his former fiance's tweet. "Bravo Kanye West for standing up for yourself and speaking out against mental health. I can’t explain to you enough how difficult and scary it is to be honest about stuff like this. We need people like Kanye. No one should ever point fingers at you for your bravery in speaking about mental health. I’m seriously disgusted," he wrote.
As Ariana later apologized for joking about Kanye's mental health, alongside mentioning how much she regretted her comments, the singer also told fans she 'hated the internet' and that they should 'stop weaponizing mental health.' But all of the internet — including some pretty big names in the industry — turned to Pete with endless love and support after the concerning message he had posted and immediately taken down.
Pete is known to have struggled with depression for years, and in the since-deleted post, he wrote "I really don’t want to be on this earth anymore. I’m doing my best to stay here for you but I actually don’t know how much longer I can last. All I’ve ever tried to do was help people. Just remember I told you so." He ended it with a heart emoji.
He was also quick to delete his Instagram account following that too, but other celebrities acted on it in no time. Nicki Minaj was quick to send some much-needed love to Pete, tweeting: "OMG Pete. I love him omg." Machine Gun Kelly and Jon Cryer also tweeted their concern saying 'his emotional turmoil has escalated recently' and they are 'very worried about him.' This comes after he opened up with Teen Vogue back in August about his mental health problems.
"I've been in and out of mental health facilities since I was nine," Pete had said noting his suicide attempt in the past. His past has been quite tragic too, with his father, a New York City firefighter, dying during the terrorist attacks on 9/11. Pete himself was diagnosed with Crohn's disease back in high school, which is when he admitted having also started smoking marijuana to relieve some of his symptoms. This led to him being sent to rehab twice, where it was also discovered that he had bipolar disorder.
"The last few years have been real rough with me. I took all these mental health classes and really spent a lot of time getting me good," he told the magazine.
