Pete Davidson is speaking out about his breakup from Ariana Grande once again. The 25-year-old comedian was laughing and joking his way through his New Year’s Eve performance on Monday, Dec. 31 – and his split with the “Sweetener” songstress definitely was not off limits.
During his show at the Chevalier Theatre in Boston, the Saturday Night Live star decided to ring in 2019 by opening up about his relationship with the 25-year-old singer like never before. According to Us Weekly, the actor admitted he cried at the table with his mom following their broken engagement in October 2018. Ugh, our hearts!
Pete also opened up about how much he learned about the people in his life during the tough time.
“It made me see how ugly people can get, and how cool people can be,” he explained.
After their split, Ari name dropped Pete (and her other exes) in her breakup anthem “Thank U, Next.” So of course, the New York native had to poke a little fun at the whole situation at his New Year’s Eve show.
“Not this wonderful lady,” he said. “This diabolical genius named all of us.”
Last month, Pete took to Instagram to share an open letter to his millions of followers, in which he got real about the pain he’s endured from the public nature of his relationship.
“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.”
