So heartbreaking. SNL star Pete Davidson has been trying to keep a low profile ever since his very public split from pop star Ariana Grande back in October. Earlier this month, Pete got extremely candid about how the aftermath of their breakup has affected his mental health and now, Pete deleted his Instagram after sharing a now-deleted cryptic message where he seemingly hinted that he might be contemplating suicide.
“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 text post shared on his official Instagram page.
Fans immediately flooded the comments, and many of the pleaded with Pete to stay strong. “Pete please don’t be alone right now. Keep good friends by your side and let them supervise you. Please do this for yourself. This scares me and I desperately hope everyone is reaching out to you and not letting you be alone. Please please please don’t hurt yourself,” one fan wrote, while another commented, “Please stay! The world is a bad place but your comedy touches people’s lives and makes it better!”
Pete has been very open with his struggle with mental health in the past, and on Dec. 3, he revealed that he had been faced with online bullying in the weeks after his split from Ariana.
“I’ve been getting online bullied and in public by people for [nine] months. I’ve spoken about BPD and being suicidal publicly only in the hopes that it will help bring awareness and help kids like myself who don’t want to be on this earth,” Pete wrote. “I just want you guys to know. No matter how hard the internet or anyone tries to make me kill myself. I won’t. 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.”
