While it seems like there is nothing but love and respect between Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson, the formerly engaged exes are saying “Thank U, Next” on social media. A source told Us Weekly that the 25-year-old Saturday Night Live comedian blocked Ari on social media, as he is “trying to distance himself from her narrative for his health.”
According to a fan post on Twitter as well, which Ari responded to with a black heart emoji, she does not have access to his social media posts anymore.
“I have never encouraged anything but forgiveness. I care deeply about Pete and his health and would never encourage any kind of mistreatment,” the singer reportedly wrote. “I haven’t seen any of it because I’m blocked but I want you to know that I would never want or encourage that ever and you should know that. I care about him deeply.”

You see, Pete recently took to Instagram to share a very powerful message about bullying.
Pete wrote, “I’ve kept my mouth shut. Never mentioned any names, never said a word about anyone or anything. I’m trying to understand how when something happens to a guy the whole entire world just trashes him without any facts or frame of reference. Especially in today’s climate where everyone loves to be offended and upset it truly is mind boggling,” Pete wrote. “I’ve been getting online bullied and in public by people for 9 months. I’ve spoken about BPD and being suicidal publicly only in hopes that will bring awareness and help kids like myself who don’t want to be on this earth. I just want you guys to know. No matter how hard the internet or anyone tries to make me kill myself. I won’t. I’m upset I even have to say this. To all those holding down and seeing this for what it is — I see you and I love you.”
Ariana quickly came to Pete’s defense, encouraging her fans to be mindful of other people’s feelings and spread love.
“I’ve learned from my own mistakes not to be reactive on socials so I do understand, but you truly don’t know what anybody is experiencing ever. Regardless of what they choose to display on social media or how they may appear in public. I can promise you that. So please let whatever point you’re trying to make go,” she wrote. “I will always have irrevocable love for him and if you’ve gotten any other impression from my recent work, you might have missed the point.”
Further proving that there is no bad blood between the pair of the past, the 25-year-old “Sweetener” songstress had nothing but good things to say about Pete in her recent interview with Billboard. While she mentioned Pete in a lyric of her new hit single, “Thank U, Next,” Ari explained that she sent it to her ex — along with her other former loves she name drops in the tune, Big Sean and Ricky Alvarez — before it was released, getting his stamp of approval.
“I wasn’t going to blindside anybody,” the star said.
So there you have it — they’re not trying to start any drama here!
