Pete Davidson Is in a “Dark Place,” Worrying Friends and Family [Report]
Last week, Pete Davidson threatened suicide in an Instagram post that left the comic’s family, friends, and millions of fans deeply concerned.
The situation was so dire that Davidson’s most recent ex, Ariana Grande, attempted to come to his aid.
“I really don’t want to be on this earth anymore,” Davidson wrote.
“I’m doing my best to stay here for you but I actually don’t know how much longer I can last. All I’ve ever tried to do was help people. just remember I told you so,”
Grande responded to the comment, indicating that she had rushed to 30 Rockefeller Plaza where SNL is shot in order to lend support to Davidson.
However, it seems the singer didn’t get any further than the lobby, as security refused to allow her up to the studio.
“I’m not going anywhere if you need anyone or anything,” she tweeted.
“I know u have everyone u need and that’s not me, but I’m here too.”
Unfortunately, it appears that Davidson’s condition has not improved in the days since his desperate cry for help.
In fact, insiders tell TMZ that the situation has only deteriorated.
One source tells the site that Davidson believes “the whole world is against him.”
“He believes even his friends and colleagues don’t care if he lives or dies,” TMZ reports.
Insiders say Pete has reached out to the people in his life — but he’s also “lashed out.”
He’s reportedly stated on several occasions that if he were to take his own life, his friends and colleagues “wouldn’t care.”
Pete’s friends and family are reportedly doing everything they can for the comic, but they fear it’s not enough.
Earlier this week, Ariana Grande joined Jimmy Fallon and several former SNL cast members to recreate one of the show’s best-loved holiday sketches for The Tonight Show.
Bizarrely, the sketch became a source of controversy, as many felt it was inappropriate for Ariana to take part, as SNL is such a huge part of Pete’s life.
There’s no word yet on how Pete reacted to the sketch, or if he’s even aware of it — but it’s probably best for those in Davidson’s life to tread lightly at the moment.
We wish Davidson all the best in his recovery.
