Pete Davidson and Ariana Grande’s relationship was the ultimate whirlwind, but now the dust has settled – and Thank U, Next has gone on to smash the charts as a result – the comedian is getting real about how and why it ended before it had even begun.
ICYMI, Davidson and Grande were engaged back in June 2018 but called it quits just four months later.
In a recent interview with Charlamagne Tha God, Davidson said he knew it was “over” with Grande when her ex-boyfriend Mac Miller died in September 2018 from an accidental overdose.
“I think I said, like, ‘I’ll be here until you don’t want me here,’” Davidson said. “I pretty much knew it was over around after that. That was really horrible and I can’t imagine what that sh*t is like. That sh*t is just terrible.”
“All I do know is that she really loved the sh*t out of him and she wasn’t putting on a show or anything,” he said. “That was f*cked up and prayers to his family and all of his friends, still.”
During the interview, Pete Davidson also spoke about making jokes about his past relationships and what’s off-limits. “I think genuinely being hurt is off-limits or anything like being sh*tty or anything.”
“I wanna be cool with everybody but, you know, stand-up’s a part of my life,” he said. “That was a highly publicised thing. I feel like [Ariana] got her fair run and her fair stab at it, and like I said, I don’t have social media and I don’t have an outlet really to express my feelings so stand-up’s just how I do it.”
“[Ariana]’s the queen of shade… I hope people feel the same way about my jokes.”
Since parting ways with Ariana Grande in 2018, Pete Davidson has been linked to a number of high profile women including Kate Beckinsale, Margaret Qualley and most recently, Kaia Gerber.
“What can I say? I love love, but I’m pretty done with that,” he said. “I’m going to try and stay away from that. It’s just a lot…”
“I think you grow a lot as a person. I’ve learned a lot from the awesome chicks that I’ve been with, and they’re all cool,” he added. “So I think you just grow, you become a better version of yourself, because you learn a little something from everybody.”
Wow. Who would’ve thought the SNL jokester could speak so many refreshing truths.
