Pete Davidson has opened up about the moment he knew his engagement to Ariana Grande was over.
The 26-year-old comedian who is known for his turns on Saturday Night Live, said that his relationship with Ariana was effectively over the moment her ex Mac Miller died.
His time with Ariana comfortably fits in the ‘whirlwind romance’ category, with the pair shocking their fans by getting engaged just weeks after meeting before it all going pear shaped just four months later.
Speaking to Charlamagne Tha God, Pete spoke candidly about his love life and a number of high profile relationships.
He also admitted that while he is single now, he would love to become a dad within the next “five years.”
It was the Ariana Grande relationship that came under the most scrutiny and Pete spoke honestly about what happened after they got engaged in June 2018.
He has cited the accidental overdose of Ariana’s ex-boyfriend, rapper Mac Miller, in September 2018 as the reason why the relationship came to an abrupt halt.
Speaking about being with Ariana, Pete said: “I think I said, like, ‘I’ll be here until you don’t want me to be here.’
“I pretty much knew it was over around after that. That was really horrible and I can’t imagine what that s*** is like. That s*** is just terrible.”
Pete went on to say how much Ariana was still into her ex boyfriend and how that he soon became insignificant in her life.
He continued: “All I do know is that she really loved the s*** out of him and she wasn’t putting on a show or anything.
“That was f***ed up and prayers to his family and all of his friends, still.”
Despite calling the engagement off, he said that he still wants to be “cool” with the 26-year-old pop star.
Moving on to where he can take his material as a SNL comedian, Pete said it was pretty much anything goes but he said that there were certain topics he felt were “off-limits.”
He said: “I think genuinely being hurtful is off-limits or anything like being s***ty or anything.
“I wanna be cool with everybody but, you know, stand-up’s part of my life. That was a highly publicised thing.
“I feel like [Ariana] got her fair run and her fair stab at it, and like I said, I don’t have social media and I don’t have an outlet really to express my feelings so stand-up’s just how I do it.”
He did manage to get a little dig in about the singer, saying: “[Ariana]’s the queen of shade… I hope people feel the same way about my jokes.”
After Ariana, Pete went on to date Hollywood actress Kate Beckinsale and then 18-year-old supermodel Kaia Gerber.
He has decided now to put the desire for a relationship behind him so that he can focus on his mental health.
He said: “What can I say? I love love, but I’m pretty done with that. I’m going to try and stay away from that. It’s just a lot…”
“I think you grow a lot as a person. I’ve learned a lot from the awesome chicks that I’ve been with, and they’re all cool.
“So I think you just grow, you become a better version of yourself, because you learn a little something from everybody.”
