Pete Davidson Reportedly Turned Ariana Grande Away From SNL After He Posted Suicidal Note
Over the weekend, Pete Davidson worried his fans, friends, and followers when posted a note to Instagram saying "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," he added.
Pete's troubling statement caught the attention of fellow celebrities, including Nicki Minaj, Jada Pinkett-Smith, Machine Gun Kelly and more who sent the comedian words of support.
We can be so insensitive. God bless Kanye & Pete. Being flippant about mental illness speaks more about you than them. Stop saying the word love & live it. Love is an action.

Pete Davidson ... hang in there. There is a lot of help out here. Surrender to some love some where around you ... today! Right now! And then ... let in the help that will become available. I’m praying for you Pete. I’ve been there. It gets better.

Pete's ex-fiance Ariana Grande also saw the post and responded in a since-deleted tweet: "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."

It has since been revealed that Ariana was *literally* downstairs at NBC's studios where Pete was appearing on Saturday Night Live, but according to a source he "didn't want to talk to her."
"She tweeted and reached out. She tried to contact him and rushed to see him. But, he didn't want to talk to her and made it clear," the source told E! News. "She has been worried sick, but doesn't know what else she can do."

"Pete was alone and in a very dire place when he posted," the source said. "He has been with friends ever since and they are trying to help him get through this. He doesn't want to be in contact with Ariana or hear what she has to say."
Ariana told a Twitter fan over the weekend that she doesn't have Pete's number anymore, but the source added "she will always be there for him in any way that she can."
We hope Pete is doing okay, and sending him all our strength and love.
