Trigger warning: This post talks about suicide.
After everything they’ve been through, it turns out, there’s no bad blood between Ariana Grande and her ex-fiancé, Pete Davidson. The singer took to Instagram to stick up for the Saturday Night Live comedian on Monday, Dec. 3, when she sent her fans an important message.
“I know you already know this but I feel I need to remind my fans to please be gentler with others,” she wrote. “I really don’t endorse anything but forgiveness and positivity.”
She then went on to explain that even though they’re broken up, she still cares about her ex.
“I care deeply about Pete and his health. I’m asking you to please be gentler with others, even on the internet,” the 25-year-old continued. “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.”
Ariana recently shouted out the comedian in her new single, “Thank U, Next,” which is a tribute to all of her exes. But she wants everyone to know that she didn’t mean any shade by it, whatsoever.
“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,” she concluded.
Her post was in response to an emotional message about bullying that Pete shared with his followers yesterday. The 25-year-old opened up about how hard it’s been for him since his and the singer’s very public breakup, and it was heartbreaking.
“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.”
As J-14 readers know, the couple was engaged for four months before splitting in early October. Ariana’s message is definitely an important one, please always remember to spread love and positivity.
