Pete Davidson made his first stage appearance on Saturday (Oct. 20) following the news broke that him and Ariana Grande split after a Summer romance.
The 24-year-old Saturday Night Live star co-hosted the comedy show, Judd & Pete for America, benefiting Swing Left at Largo at the Coronet in West Hollywood, with Judd Apatow. “Well, as you could tell, I don’t want to be here. There’s a lot going on,” Davidson told the crowd. “Does anybody have any open rooms? Looking for a roommate?”
During their relationship, the singer purchased a $16 million New York City apartment for her and Davidson. Pete is “staying with family” and was “doing fine” after they broke up and called off the engagement. “He has a strong support system of family and friends around him that are keeping him laughing.”
During his set at the comedy show, Davidson also joked about covering the tattoo he got in honor of his ex-girlfriend.
“Um, I’ve been covering a bunch of tattoos, that’s fun,” Davidson told the crowd. “I’m f–king 0 for 2 in the tattoo [department]. Yeah, I’m afraid to get my mom tattooed on me, that’s how bad it is.”
The couple had gotten a few matching tattoos while they were together. Grande recently made her post-split appearance at a taping of NBC’s A Very Wicked Halloween, and was seen wearing a Band-Aid over one of her tats.
“So, obviously you know I, we [Ariana and I] broke up or whatever but when me and her first got engaged we got tattoos,” he later continued. “And it was like in a magazine like, ‘Was Pete Davidson stupid?’ And 93% of it said yes,” Davidson told the audience. “So my boy, he was like, ‘Don’t listen to that s–t man. They’re literally f–king haters.’ And I’m like, yeah, f–k that. I’m not stupid. And the other day we were in my kitchen and he was like, ‘Yo bro. Turns out you were stupid.'”
