Pete Davidson Breaks Silence About Ariana Grande Split In Standup Routine, Admits Matching Tattoos Were ‘Stupid’

Pete Davidson hasn’t publicly commented on his split from Ariana Grande — until now.

On Saturday night, the “SNL” star took to the stage of an L.A. hotspot to discuss the split through the medium of standup comedy.

Appearing alongside Judd Apatow at a benefit show at Largo, the 24-year-old addressed the bunny-eared elephant in the room.

“Well, as you could tell, I don’t want to be here. There’s a lot going on,” Davidson told the crowd, as reported by HotNewHipHop and other sites.

“Does anybody have any open rooms?” quipped the newly single comedian, apparently confirming reports he’s no longer living in Grande’s $16-million NYC apartment. “Looking for a roommate?”

He also confirmed photos indicating that he’s been covering up the Grande-themed tattoos he got during the couple’s brief four-month engagement.

“Um, I’ve been covering a bunch of tattoos, that’s fun,” he deadpanned. “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 continued: “So, obviously you know I, we [Ariana and I] broke up or whatever but when me and her first got engaged we got tattoos. And it was like in a magazine like, ‘Was Pete Davidson stupid?’ And 93 per cent of it said yes. So, my boy, he was like, ‘Don’t listen to that s**t, man. They’re literally f**king haters.’ And I’m like, ‘Yeah, f**k that. I’m not stupid.’ And the other day we were in my kitchen and he was like, ‘Yo bro. Turns out you were stupid.'”

Judd Apatow, Davidson’s co-host for the “Judd & Pete for America” benefit, thanked him for coming out to perform amid all his personal drama.

“Well, you put me on the flyer, I had to,” Davidson joked, adding, “F**k my feelings.”

“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 quipped. “I’m a good guy that just keeps getting kicked in the d**k. You’re like, ‘Ah, that f**king poor kid. Hope he doesn’t kill himself.’ That’s America.”

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.
