Nothing like spending time with your bestie! Pete Davidson has admittedly been struggling over the past few months since his split from his ex-fiancée Ariana Grande, and for a moment, he was in a very dark place after he shared a disturbing message on Instagram last month. But now, the SNL star seems to be back on the mend and he was all smiles during a guys’ night out at a basketball game with his best friend, rapper Machine Gun Kelly.

Pete, 25, and MGK, 28, were spotted at the Pepsi Center on Jan. 5, in Denver to watch the Denver Nuggets vs. Charlotte Hornets game. Pete was sporting a new ‘do — he buzzed down his silver-gray hair to a short, natural brunette look. He looked casual in a gray sweatshirt, black pants, black-and-white sneakers, and clear glasses — and he sipped on a beer as he watched the game with his pal.
The “RAP DEVIL” rapper and Pete seem to be very close buds — MGK even publicly shared his support for Pete and rushed to his friend’s side after Pete shared a seemingly suicidal message on his Instagram page before deleting his account. “I really don’t want to be on this earth anymore. 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 ,” the 25-year-old wrote in a now-deleted text post shared on his official Instagram page.
Within an hour after Pete shared his heartbreaking plea, MGK tweeted: “I’m [on] the plane now on the way to see Pete. Gonna make sure he’s good, I promise. Can’t have my boy in the darkness like that.”
It’s good to see Pete surrounding himself with close friends and loved ones in the weeks since his cry for help. And just last week, sources shared an updated and revealed to Us Weekly that Pete “is doing a lot better” now.
