Pete Davidson 'knew it was over' with Ariana Grande after Mac Miller died

Pete Davidson has revealed he knew his engagement to Ariana Grande was essentially finished after the death of her ex-boyfriend Mac Miller. 

In a candid interview with Charlamagne Tha God, Davidson said the rapper's untimely demise played a part in his break-up with Grande, which occurred just a few months after they were engaged. 

"I pretty much knew it was over after that," Davidson said, referring to Miller's death from an accidental overdose in 2018. 

"I totally got it," he said. 

Davidson said he assured Grande he would be there for her while she grieved her ex, who she dated for nearly two years. 

"We were only together for a few months," Davidson said of their short-lived relationship.

"I was like, 'Listen. Do whatever you gotta do. I'll be here.' I literally said: 'I'll be here until you don't want me to be here.'"

The comedian said the situation was "f**ked up" for Grande, who he said "loved the shit" out of Miller. 

"She wasn't like, you know, putting on a show or anything." 

Despite his support for Grande in her time of need, Davidson is set to use her as the punchline to several jokes in his upcoming Netflix comedy special. 

In an interview with E! Entertainment, Davidson said it was "fair game" to use Grande in his stand up material since she has referenced him in her songs and interviews. 

Grande called her engagement to Davidson an "amazing distraction" in a tell-all Vogue interview. 

"Could you imagine if I did that?" he told E! 

"My career would be over tomorrow if I spray painted myself brown and hopped on the cover of Vogue magazine and just started shitting on my ex," he continued, referring to controversy around Grande's artificially darkened skin-tone on the cover.
