Comedian Pete Davidson had found himself all over the news in the last few months. His highly publicized relationship and breakup with pop star Ariana Grande put a major spotlight on him. But over the weekend, the Saturday Night Live comic posted, then deleted a troubling Instagram post. Davidson earlier on Saturday 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 his post with a heart emoji.
Following the alarming post, New York Police Department (NYPD) paid a visit to Davidson, who has spoken openly about his mental health problems in the past, just to make sure that he was doing OK.
Also responding to his note on Instagram was his ex-fiance, Ariana Grande. She wrote, “I’m downstairs and I’m not going anywhere if you need anyone or anything. I know you have everyone that you need and that’s not me but I’m here too.”
We wish Pete Davidson the best.
