Ariana Grande: “Pete Davidson is a Selfish A-Hole!”
For nearly three weeks after Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson broke up, both parties managed to keep any hard feelings toward one another under wraps.
But last night the dam broke in a big way, confirming earlier reports that Pete and Ariana did not part ways on good terms.
The airing of grievances began in unexpected fashion with a promo for this week’s episode of Saturday Night Live.
Standing alongside host Jonah Hill and musical guest Maggie Rogers, Davidson cracked a joke about his famous tendency to jump the gun when it comes to popping the question.
Take a look:
No doubt it hit a little close to home for Ariana, but ultimately, Davidson himself was the butt of the joke, not Grande
But Ariana didn’t see it that way, and she vented her frustrations on Twitter to the amusement of her massive, largely Pete-hating fan base.
“For somebody who claims to hate relevancy u sure love clinging to it huh … thank u. next,” Grande wrote in a pair of since-deleted tweets.
But while that may be the first time Ariana has publicly trash-talked Pete, sources close to the singer say her inner circle has been aware of her feelings toward the comic for quite some time.
“Ariana is straight up tired of Pete talking sh-t. She left him because he is arrogant, self-centered, selfish and an attention-seeking assh-le,” one insider tells Radar Online.
“Everything he is doing right now just confirms to her that she made the right choice.”
“Everyone told Ariana that Pete was using her for his own career gain and this just goes to show that everyone was right,” the source adds.
“Ariana just wants Pete to go away and her family feels the same way. They just want him to get lost.”
While they may not get their wish entirely, it seems Ariana’s decision to speak out against her ex has had the desired effect in one regard.
Production sources at SNL have confirmed that Pete has decided not to go ahead with a sketch planned for this week’s show that would skewer his short-lived relationship with Ariana.
We guess that’s a victory for Team Ari.
Of course, Pete has made a name for himself by mining the more painful aspects of his personal life for material, so you can be sure it won’t be long before he publicly addresses his A-list romance yet again.
