Machine Gun Kelly Flies To Be With Pete Davidson After He Posts Suicidal Note Online
ICYMI, Pete Davidson shocked fans over the weekend when he posted a troubled message to Instagram, which read "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," the post continued. "All I've ever tried to do was help people. Just remember I told you so."
Shortly after posting the message, Pete deleted his Instagram account, and although he made a brief appearance on Saturday Night Live, the comedian's celebrity friends and followers were quick to reach out to him, as well as the NYPD, who performed a welfare check.
Pete's ex-fiance Ariana Grande tweeted: "Man I'm so sorry I told a dumb joke...I really didn't mean any harm. All I want is for everyone to be healthy and happy. So desperately. Please. My god...I'm downstairs and I'm not going anywhere if you need anyone or anything. I know u have everyone u need and that's not me, but I'm here too."

Rapper Machine Gun Kelly also showed his support for Pete, tweeting "I'm in 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."
