Heartbroken Pete Davidson 'still in love' with Ariana Grande and misses her ‘every minute of the day'
Ariana Grande's former fiance Pete Davidson admits that he is 'still in love' with her but has accepted that the split was for the best
Pete Davidson is not over his ex-fiance Ariana Grande and has reportedly said that he 'is still in love' with her. The SNL comedian and the singer called off their engagement last week.
According to a friend of Davidson who spoke to Page Six, Pete shared that he hopes the couple can reconcile as he "'sees a future with her". The source added, "I talked to Pete a few days ago and he was joking again. He’s still in love with Ariana and sees a future with her. [But] He knows [the breakup] is for the best".
The friend also shared that Davidson is coping with the help of his "strong support system". "He is staying with very close friends he considers family. Pete has a strong support system," the source added.
A source close to the SNL star told Hollywood Life that he's in a lot of pain. “He misses Ariana every minute of every day, from the second he wakes up until the moment he goes to sleep.”
“Right now, Pete feels like he will never get over Ariana, that his heart will never mend, and that he will never fall in love again,” the source said. “His friends and family are doing their best to rally round, but he’s just beside himself."
“It would be easier to deal with if one of them had cheated, but the circumstances under which they split make it just unbearable. He feels like everything is still unresolved and he has no closure.”
Ariana and Pete have not shared a reason for their split though many reports suggest that she dumped him due to his lack of support after her former flame Mac Miller passed away.
As reported by The Sun, an insider said, "Ariana dumped Pete. They'd been rowing for two weeks about Pete's lack of support after Mac's death. Ariana has been devastated and Pete couldn’t handle it. She realized she needs a grown-up who can support her and that’s not him. They secretly split a week ago and she's already moved out of the apartment".
Post the split, Ariana was seen in NYC on Tuesday and she had covered up a tattoo of Davidson's initials using a band-aid. She was also not wearing her $100k engagement ring. The former couple had announced their engagement in the month of June earlier this year when Pete confirmed the news while appearing on 'The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon'.
The couple had moved in together and were staying at an expensive New York City apartment which Ariana had paid for before they decided to split up and go their separate ways.
