Pete Davidson Addresses Ariana Grande Split for the First Time

Ariana Grande was spotted in NY with her mother on the same day that Pete Davidson joked about their called-off engagement on the other side of the country.

His revelations were made in jest while he co-hosted Judd & Pete for America, a comedy show benefiting Swing Left.

During an appearance at the Largo at the Coronet Benefit - with Judd Apatow - the 24-year-old jokingly asked if anyone was looking for a roommate, as he had previously been living with the Breathin' singer. "They're literally fucking haters".

"I care more about America than your feelings, I do", Apatow responded, telling the crowd: "I care more about America than Pete's feelings".

"I feel like I am America", Davidson retorted. "Turns out you were stupid'". "Hope he doesn't kill himself!'"

Before that, Davidson was very upfront with the audience: "Well, as you could tell, I don't want to be here". Davidson said that he put him on the flyer, so he had no option but to make the appearence.

The silence is finally broken on Pete Davidson's side.

"I've been covering a bunch of tattoos, that's fun", Davidson quipped, referencing the tattoos he got in honor of Grande.

We'll see what else Davidson has to say when "Saturday Night Live" returns with a new episode on Saturday, Nov. 3; "SNL" airs Saturdays at 8:30 p.m. PT/11:30 p.m. ET on Global; you can also watch full episodes online. "I'm f-king 0 for 2 in the tattoo [department]".

"Yeah, I'm afraid to get my mom tattooed on me, that's how bad it is", he joked.

She hit the shops in style just after she revealed she would be taking some time away from social media, in a bid to "keep going". "It's very sad and we're all tryin very hard to keep goin. love u. and thank u for bein here always".

The source assures E! that the breakup came from a good place, as both Pete and Ari are still in contact, but realized it's "best to be physically apart", and "still care about each other".

Given her recent break-up with Davidson, and Miller's death, the original post is considered by many to be particularly cruel.
