Comedian Pete Davidson is "dating again!" The 25-year-old Saturday Night Live star may have finally moved on, following his split from his ex-girlfriend Ariana Grande.
The former lovebirds' much-hyped romance saw them get engaged within months of dating, only to part ways months later. To public's amusement, both Pete and Ariana have traded jabs at each other's expense since calling it quits in October of 2018.
The public fallout since then has spawned a diss record, a compassionate response and even an Instagram blockade. However, it is Pete's recent admission that has startled both the fans and people in the show-biz!
Pete Davidson: "No Matter How Hard The Internet Or Anyone Tries To Make Me Kill Myself. I Won't."
Contrary to his most recent SNL skits where he pokes fun at his short-lived engagement to the Breathin' songstress, Pete has had to battle the aftermath of the breakup on his own.
Referencing the host of negative comments surrounding him online, the Staten Island native shared a lengthy Instagram post on 3rd November of 2018, addressing the very matter. He began by writing:-
"I've kept my mouth shut. Never mentioned any names, never said a word about anyone or anything. I'm trying to understand how when something happens to a guy the whole entire world just trashes him without any facts of a frame of reference..."
Pete then followed up by opening about how he has been bullied by the trolls ever since he got linked to his former girlfriend Ariana. He continued:-
"Especially in today's climate where everyone loves to be offended and upset it truly is mind boggling. I've been getting online bullied and in public by people for 9 months."
The former Guy Code star, who spoke on previous occasions on mental health issues, sounded defiant when he proceeded with these words:-
"I've spoken about BPD and being suicidal publicly only in the hopes that it will help bring awareness and help kids like myself who don't want to be on this earth. I just want you guys to know. No matter how hard the internet or anyone tries to make me kill myself. I won't. I'm upset I even have to say this."
He concluded his now-viral Instagram post by thanking his fans and supporters who had held it down and saw the whole debacle for what it was.
Ex-Girlfriend Responds To Pete's Passionate Instagram Post; Did He Block Her?
Less than 24 hours after Pete had penned the now viral Instagram post, his former fiance Ariana wrote an equally passionate note on her Instagram story.
The "No Tears Left To Cry" songstress opened her story by calling for her fans to show compassion towards her former boo. She began:-
"I know u already know this, but I feel I need to remind my fans to please be gentler with others. I really don't endorse anything but forgiveness and positivity..."
According to Ariana, she still cares very deeply about Pete and his well-being. She continued:-
"I care deeply about Pete and his health. I'm asking you to please be gentler with others, even on the internet."
Then, she proceeded by sharing her own experience how she has dealt with all the negativity surrounding her. The Side to Side singer explained:-
"I've learned thru my own mistakes not to be reactive on socials, so I do understand, but you truly don't know what anybody is experiencing ever, regardless of what they choose to display on social media or how they may appear in public. I can promise u [sic] that so please let whatever point you're trying to make go."
Ariana ended her story professing her love for him. Her last words read:-
"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."
Earlier that morning, a screen-shot from one of Ariana's fan accounts implied that Pete had blocked Ariana from Instagram. The stated fan account (@arianashiijabi) reacted to the DM sent by Ariana Grande herself by tweeting:-
"there’s nothing left to say... "

Perhaps, Pete blocking his ex on Instagram is a clear sign that he has finally moved on, no?
Back In The Dating Scene? Is New Girlfriend In The Picture?
Pete representative echoed a similar sentiment of him being at a much happier place when the yet-to-be-identified source spoke to E! News.
According to the stated rep, Pete seemed to be doing just fine. The insider said:-
"Pete is doing fine. He has a strong support system of family and friends around him that are keeping him laughing."
The stated insider then named-dropped the SNL star's ex-girlfriend, Ariana all the while speaking on how well he had been coping with the breakup. The un-identifiable source quipped:-
"While Pete's focusing on himself, he always wishes the best for Ari."
Judging by Pete's epic Instagram PSA-styled post and the statement from his representative, the comedian was more than likely to date again shortly.
Dating Again; Reconnects With Ex-Girlfriend?
Pete waited for the dust of his tumultuous relationship with Ariana to settle down before he made a jump into the current dating scene -- almost three months, to be more precise. In truth, he couldn't have picked a more famous woman to be his next girlfriend.
His current muse, actress Kate Beckinsale certainly qualifies as being on the same plateau as his ex Ariana, no? Allegedly dating since January 2019 after appearing cozy at the Golden Globe after party, Pete and Kate - who share 20 years age difference between them - are planning to "upped the ante," it seems.

If one believed the industry insiders, the smitten duo is all set to take a vacation together. Oddly enough, Ariana got caught calling the blissful pair "cute" on camera.
Although not a public affair yet, the comedian and the actress, for their part, haven't tried to hide their romance on social media, often dishing out clapbacks to "the haters."

That said, will the surfacing of the image of Pete "partying" with ex-girlfriend Carly Aquilino in the midst of it all stir up more drama?
Less likely than not. Firstly because it is a group photo and secondly, the meeting couldn't be less romantic. The former lovebirds reconnected for an SNL episode.
Engaged & Split: Whirlwind Romance With Ex-Girlfriend Ariana Grande
Nevertheless, nobody would argue that Pete's split from Ariana gave birth to one of the most trivial "post-breakup exchanges" in recent memory.

Following their split, Ariana released a visible diss track titled "Thank U, Next." Although she has always denied that the record is anything but a subtle jab at Pete, the very first verse on the song sees her singing:-
"And for Pete, I'm so thankful."
The love-hate thing between the once-engaged couple continued when Pete responded to the alleged diss track in his Weekend Update SNL segment. He countered by saying:-
"She's a wonderful, strong person and I genuinely wish her all the happiness in the world."
In all honesty, there hasn't been a single dull moment when the former lovers' names come up in conversation. The whirlwind romance that saw the pair get engaged within weeks of dating each other, only to calls it quits four months later in October of 2018.
