Pete Davidson advised security to keep Ariana Grande from reaching him at NBC’s 30 Rock studios after his worrying social media posts, TMZ reports.
Davidson’s ex-fiancée reportedly rushed to the Saturday Night Live set after he posted, then deleted, an Instagram message stating “I really don’t want to be on this earth anymore.”
The Thank U, Next singer also tweeted and deleted a message saying she was “downstairs and I’m not going anywhere if you need anyone or anything,” and told the comedian “I know u have everyone u need and that’s not me, but i’m here too.”
However, Davidson is reported to have denied entry to Grande, nearly two years after they first met on the set of the programme.
Grande’s offer for assistance is just one of many from high-profile figures. Jada Pinkett-Smith tweeted at the 25-year-old, telling him “I’ve been there. It gets better.” Nicki Minaj and sitcom star Jon Cryer also vouched for Davidson.
Pete Davidson … hang in there. There is a lot of help out here. Surrender to some love some where around you … today! Right now! And then … let in the help that will become available. I’m praying for you Pete. I’ve been there. It gets better.

We can be so insensitive. God bless Kanye & Pete. Being flippant about mental illness speaks more about you than them. Stop saying the word love & live it. Love is an action.

Am hearing Pete Davidson is at SNL and accounted for.
We are thinking of you, Pete.
You are loved.

Davidson has been open about his mental health and living with Borderline Personality Disorder, and has also commented on the bullying he has experienced in the fallout of his relationship with Grande.
“No matter how hard the internet or anyone tries to make me kill myself. I won’t,” Davidson said earlier this month.
“I’m upset I even have to say this.”
