Pete Davidson ventured back to romance just two months after his split from Ariana Grande, and of course the restaurant he was on a date in played ‘Thank u, next’ to serenade him.
A source told E! that the SNL comedian is “dating again” after his recent break up with Ariana Grande, who he was engaged to for four months.
The source said that Davidson is “doing fine. He has a strong support system of family and friends around him that are keeping him laughing,” adding, “While Pete’s focusing on himself, he always wishes the best for Ari.”
Grande recently sang about Davidson in her new song ‘Thank u, Next’. She says in the song, “And for Pete, I’m so thankful.” The song is not a diss track but a description of her past relationships.
A fan recently captured a hilarious photo in which Davidson is on a date in a restaurant that is playing the break up song written about him.

Pete has also addressed their break up since the end of their relationship. In a recent episode of SNL, he said, “I know some of you are curious about the breakup, but the truth is, it’s nobody’s business and sometimes things just don’t work out, and that’s OK.”
He added, “She’s a wonderful, strong person and I genuinely wish her all the happiness in the world.”
He also cracked jokes about being homeless now that he is out of the $16 million New York City apartment the couple lived in together.
During a stand up routine right after their routine, Davidson said, “Does anybody have any open rooms? Looking for a roommate?”
Davidson also made a joke about having to cover up his tattoos after breaking up with Grande, and sources said she was really hurt about him using their engagement to get attention.
A source told E!, . “They made an agreement that they would not address their relationship or discuss it after they split up. He violated that agreement and it really hurt her. She knew he would see her tweet. Pete is having a hard time with the breakup and making jokes his way of dealing with it. Ariana hopes that he will have enough respect to not do it again.”
In addition to joking, Davidson has also been serious on social media about the consequences of his relationship and break up with Grande.
He wrote, “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 frame of reference.”
He added, “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.”
He also wrote, “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.”
Before dating Grande, Davidson dated Larry David’s daughter Cazzie David for two years.
