The “Saturday Night Live” star was at the New York Knicks game at Madison Square Garden on Monday, sitting courtside next to Chloë Sevigny and actor John Mulaney.
Sporting an Undefeated jersey and black sweatpants, a blond Davidson was seen smiling and joking with friends after lashing out at online haters earlier in the day.
As The Blast reported, the usually private star took to social media, sharing a heart-wrenching message about the past nine months of his life in the spotlight. This came after news broke that Ariana covered up a tattoo she got for Pete and replaced it with Mac Miller‘s dog.
“I’ve been getting online bullied and in public by people for 9 months. I’ve spoken about BPD and being suicidal publicly only in hopes that it will bring awareness and help kids like myself who don’t want to be on this earth,” Pete Davidson said.
“I just want you guys to know. No matter how hard the internet or anyone tries to make me kill myself. I won’t,” he added.
Ariana Grande has since defended her ex-fiancé, reposting his message and begging fans to be kind.
“I care deeply about pete and his health. i’m asking you to please be gentler with others, even on the internet,” she wrote on Tuesday. “I will always have irrevocable love for him and if you’ve gotten any other impression from my recent work, you might have missed the point.”
Ariana and Pete, who were dating for five months, broke off their engagement in October.
