Tit for Tat

After reports that Ariana Grande is slowly erasing ex-fiancé Pete Davidson from her life—in the form of covering up tattoos—new reports say Pete is doing the same.

According to Us Weekly the SNL comedian has blocked his ex on his social media and is “trying to distance himself from her narrative for his health.”

The 25-year-old’s decision to block Ariana has been confirmed by her, after she retweeted a DM she wrote to a fan saying, “I have never encouraged anything but forgiveness. I care deeply about Pete and his health and would never encourage any kind of mistreatment. I haven’t seen any of it because I’m blocked. I care about him deeply.”

For Pete’s Sake

Pete Davidson is tired of all the social media trolls. He took to Instagram to leave a lengthy (for Instagram) statement about being bullied ever since his relationship with Ariana Grande got serious, and subsequently ended. Davidson said he’s been open about his struggles with depression and suicide, yet people still exploit that. “No matter how hard the internet or anyone tries to make me kill myself. I won’t,” he wrote. 

Ariana’s Cover Ups

Ariana Grande is slowing erasing Pete Davidson from her life. The singer, who earlier this year got the number “8418” tattooed on her foot—the badge number of Pete’s fire fighter father who died on 9/11— recently covered it up with “Myron.”

Myron is the name of her ex-boyfriend, Mac Miller’s dog, who she adopted following the rapper’s death.

Ariana also covered up “Pete,” which she had tattooed on her ring finger, with a black heart.

Interestingly, her ex fiancé Pete covered up his Ariana neck tattoo with a black heart as well

Thank U, Next Video

Ariana Grande is channeling her inner Mean Girl in the upcoming video for her “Thank U, Next” video — which was written in the aftermath and is almost explicitly about her breakup with Pete Davidson.

The teaser for the video parodies the high school comedy, with somewhat-famous actors fudging the original lines from the movie to be about Ariana.

Ariana Grande broke off an engagement, so I found a guy to propose to me and I broke off an engagement,” one character says.

Ariana was mum on when the full video will be released.

MEANWHILE — original Mean Girl Lindsay Lohan approves of the treatment. She took to Instagram to say “‘So flattered by @arianagrande loving #MeanGirls so much!'”

SNL Comedian Gets Trolled

Pete Davidson apologized to Dan Crenshaw, when the war veteran appeared on this weekend’s episode of “SNL.” The Republican politician, who was the subject of one of Pete’s controversial jokes on last week’s show, accepted the apology while simultaneously giving the comedian a taste of his own medicine. Dan’s phone rang during the segment and his ringtone was set to one of Ariana Grande’s songs. Pete, whose engagement to the singer recently ended, smirked and admitted it was “funny” and well-deserved.

Crenshaw Appears On SNL With Unifying Veterans Day Message

Congressman-Elect Dan Crenshaw had some words of unity for Americans on Veterans Day. Appearing on Saturday Night Live, the Iraq War veteran said that a spat with the show and subsequent contrition by star Pete Davidson for an offensive joke prove that Americans can still forgive one another. We can all see the good in each other, he said. Crenshaw the week earlier had been the butt of an ill-advised SNL skit mocking his eye patch, which he wears because he lost an eye to an IED. SNL’s Davidson apologized for the skit and joked that all Americans can agree on at least one thing—that he’s a d—k. And Crenshaw pointed to American heroes like Davidson’s dad, a New York firefighter who died on 9/11.

—QUOTABLE: “There are a lot of lessons to learn here, not just that the left and right can still agree on some things, but also this: Americans can forgive one another…We can remember what brings us together as a country and still see the good in each other.” -Crenshaw

Thanks, Pete?

Ariana Grande released a new track just 30 minutes before Saturday night’s SNL broadcast, getting ahead of anything ex-fiance Pete Davidson might say about their relationship. The song is called “Thank u, Next” and is an ode to her ex-boyfriends; it’s not explicitly a diss-track, either. But it is clearly her way of telling the world she’s ready to move on.

MEANWHILE – Insiders say SNL nixed a sketch making fun of Davidson’s proclivity for jumping into relationships. He and Grande had a verbal agreement to not talk about their split publicly, and she got mad when heard his self-depricating humor during standup sets and in an SNL promo. But Davidson did address their splitup on the show, calling Ariana a “wonderful, strong” person. 

Thank God It’s Over

Friends and family of Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson are feeling “relief” about the couple’s recent break-up. Sources told People that “everyone around the couple is fairly relieved that the whirlwind relationship is over.” The couple, who got engaged after only a month of dating, had both just gotten out of serious relationships; hers with rapper Mac Miller and his with actress Cazzie David. Ariana’s family felt that she “threw herself into the relationship” but was at least “mature enough to realize [it] wasn’t the right relationship or the right time to get married.” Since the split, Pete has moved out of their apartment and joked about how he is looking for a roommate.

Ariana Apologizes for Her Face

It’s safe to say, Ariana Grande cannot wait for 2018 to be over. From the death of her ex, Mac Miller to her recent called off engagement to Pete Davidson, the singer has had one heartbreak after another. Now the 25-year-old is dealing with internet trolls making fun of her appearance. Ariana, who only recently returned to social media, posted a selfie and followers went nuts commenting on the size of her forehead. She clapped back at the haters, sarcastically apologizing for the size of her forehead and then telling them all to go suck one. Here’s to 2019 girl!

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.
