Most fans would probably assume that being a former lover to a powerhouse like Ariana Grande will be a positive boost to anyone’s career. But for the “Saturday Night Live” comedian Pete Davidson, his former association with the “Thank U, Next” singer actually made his life a little harder.

For most fans, Grande and Davidson fell in love way too fast. Just mere weeks after Grande split with the late Mac Miller and Davidson moved on from his girlfriend of two years, Cazzie David, reports started pouring in that the two were casually dating.

Less than a month later, on June 2018, Grande and Davidson already confirmed that they were engaged. But by October of the same year, they already called it quits, seemingly just as abruptly as it all started.

But his breakup from Grande after their brief engagement was hard to accept for the singer’s fans. “My biggest fear is getting killed by a 12-year-old,” Davidson said, alluding to how Grande’s fans’ were angered when the news of their split broke out.

On Nov. 3, 2018, Davidson addressed his breakup with Grande on his show, but he didn’t want to dwell on the specifics. “I know some of you are curious about the breakup, but the truth is it's nobody's business,” Davidson said on SNL. “Sometimes things just don't work out, and that's OK. She's a wonderful, strong person, and I genuinely wish her all the happiness in the world.”

“I'm still a great song though,” he added, referring to Grande’s song “Thank U, Next,” which many believed contain many references to him. Apparently, this statement was okay with Grande as she was seen liking a clip of the videos on Twitter.

But Grande’s fans didn’t let him off the hook so easily that he took to social media to question the hate he received just because he broke up with the singer. “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,” the comedian wrote on social media. “No matter how hard the internet or anyone tries to make me kill myself. I won't.”

Grande even stepped in to defend her ex from the bullying he received. “I really don't endorse anything but forgiveness and positivity,” the singer wrote on Instagram. “I care deeply about Pete and his health. I'm asking you to please be gentler with others, even on the internet.”
