While Grande and Pete Davidson haven't publicly divulged what caused their relationship to shatter, they ended their relationship almost as quickly as they got together.
Rumors indicated that Peter Davidson was perhaps the person to blame for the split. That caused some folks online to bully and harass the comedian in a variety of fashions, a process that has been difficult He has been open in the past about his mental health concerns.
Peter Davidson explained on SNL that the breakup details will likely remain a mystery since it's a private matter, maintaining it's nobody's business to know. But the lack of clarity caused some fans to jump the gun and speculate that Davidson did something wrong. Hopefully, Grande's caring words will cause a few people to reconsider anything negative and hostile they might say to Pete Davidson and, instead, let him live out his day in peace, away from bullying.
