Never Planned A Wedding

Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson were never really going to get married. According to TMZ, the couple never discussed or looked into planning their wedding. They got engaged in June and the entire summer came and went without so much as looking at a venue, a wedding dress or discussing a potential date. The only official signs of the couple’s intentions were the $100,000 engagement ring, which has been returned to Davidson and the pet pig they bought together, who is apparently staying with Grande.

PDA Update

Ariana Grande is living her best life — she was spotted in New York doing some retail therapy while she gets over her breakup with Pete Davidson. She was touting Chanel bags in each hand. Friends say she’s been spending time with family while she recovers.

MEANWHILE — Pete’s been seen in public, performing in LA. He joked about the rush engagement being stupid and asked the crowd if anyone’s looking for a roommate … at least he’s finding levity in the situation.

Ariana’s Post

Ariana Grande has surfaced on social media. The singer posted to her Instagram on Tuesday night stating how grateful she was to be a part of the taping of A Very Wicked Halloween—her first public appearance since her split with Pete Davidson. She also alluded to the split saying: “time to say bye bye to the internet for just a lil bit. It’s hard not to bump news n stuff that im not tryna to see [right now]. It’s very sad and we’re all tryin very hard to keep goin. Love u. and thank u for bein here always.” The post has since been deleted from her page.

While filming the special, eagle-eyed spectators noticed she had a small bandage to cover up her “PETE” tattoo on her finger. But Davidson was also spotted looking glum in a hoodie outside his MOM’s house … and his Ariana tattoo was still quite visible. 

Ariana is A-OK

Ariana Grande seems to be doing okay in the days after calling off her engagement to SNL star Pete Davidson. She recorded a pre-taped song for a TV special about Broadway hit musical “Wicked.” Friends report she’s given back the $100,000 engagement ring, but she’s keeping the couple’s teacup pig. Davidson, however, was supposed to perform at Temple University tomorrow, but he pulled out.

Blame Mac

Mac Miller’s death was the tipping point that began the end of Pete Davidson and Ariana Grande’s engagement. She was distraught about her ex-boyfriend’s apparent drug overdose, and had tried repeatedly to get him into rehab. Following the death it caused her to re-evaluate her relationship with Davidson, realizing she rushed into it; the pair did get engaged after dating only briefly.

MEANWHILE — bystanders say the pair were all hugs and kisses during SNL on Saturday night. There was apparently no big blowup sending them apart; it was just time. 

Split: Pete Davidson and Ariana Grande

Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson have called off their engagement. They announced it back in May, causing plenty of heads to spin. Their relationship had been at the center of more than a few jokes on Saturday Night Live, where Davidson appears, since its return from summer hiatus three weeks ago. Friends say they’re leaving the door open for something in the future, but now just isn’t the right time. Worth noting, the ring is estimated to have cost $100,000.

Put Kanye on Meds

SNL star Pete Davidson says Kanye West should go on medication for mental illness following Ye’s pro-Trump remarks on the show last week. During “Weekend Update,” Davidson quipped, “There’s no shame in the medicine game. I’m on ’em. It’s great'” — but was he making light of mental illness, which should be a serious issue? 

Davidson also said no one stopped West from wearing his red Make America Great Again hat all week, despite his assertions that showrunners didn’t want Kanye to wear it on stage.
