US comedian Pete Davidson has revealed via a post on Instagram that his break-up with singer Ariana Grande has contributed to him being bullied online and feeling suicidal.
“I’ve kept my mouth shut. Never mentioned any names, never said a word about anyone or anything,” he wrote.
“I’m trying to understand how when something happens to a guy the whole entire world trashes him without any facts or frame of reference. Especially in today’s climate where everyone loves to be offended and upset it is truly mind-boggling. I’ve been getting online bullied and in public by people for 9 months.”

He also spoke of how he had previously outlined his battles with mental health.
“No matter how hard the internet or anyone tries to make me kill myself. I won’t,” he said. “I’m upset I even have to say this. To all those holding me down and seeing this for what it is – I see you and I love you.”
Shortly after Pete’s post went live, Ariana shared a story in response. Check it out below.
The couple’s well-publicised split is referenced in Ariana Grande’s latest hit single, ‘Thank U, Next’.
The pair, who got together in May and became engaged shortly after, ended their relationship in October.
