Pete Davidson speaks out about Ariana Grande break-up: “I’ve been covering a bunch of tattoos”

The comedian was performing at the Judd & Pete For America — A Benefit to Swing Left event

Pete Davidson has opened up about his break-up with Ariana Grande, saying “there’s a lot going on.”

Last Sunday (Oct 14), TMZ first revealed that the pair split up, having realised “that it was it simply was not the right time for their relationship to take off. We’re told the two still have love for each other, but things are over romantically.”

The split came a week after Grande revealed that she was taking a short break from music after the death of former boyfriend Mac Miller in September.


Davidson was appearing at the Judd & Pete For America — A Benefit to Swing Left event on Saturday (Oct 20). Apatow opened the show with a solo stand-up set, which was followed by a set from Tig Notaro. Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers co-founder Benmont Tench then performed, delivering a rendition of ‘American Girl’ for his final song.

“Who the fuck wants to follow that?” Davidson, said after Benmont’s performance. “Am I not going through enough that I have to fucking follow that?

“Well, as you can tell, I don’t want to be here. There’s a lot going on,” he continued. “Anybody have any open rooms? Anybody looking for a roommate?

“I’ve been covering a bunch of tattoos, that’s fun. I’m fucking 0-for-2 in the tattoo department,” Davidson added. “Yeah, I’m afraid to get my mom tattooed on me because she’d leave.”

Last week, Ariana Grande spoke for the first time since their split. The singer reportedly appeared at a televised taping of A Very Wicked Halloween, an upcoming concert that celebrates the 15th anniversary of the iconic musical.


“She showed up to film the special even though she wasn’t at rehearsal, so she’s making her comeback,” a source told Page Six. “She was incredible, she wore a green satin top and sang The Wizard & I.”

Immediately afterwards, she posted on Instagram. “Can’t believe I almost let my anxiety ruin this for me today … not today satan! Not tomorrow or the next day either … not no more u can suck my big green d**k … finna sing my heart out and be a big walking vessel of love.”
