Pete Davidson joked about his failed relationship with Ariana Grande
Comedian Pete Davidson slammed Ariana Grande for talking about their failed relationship publicly in his 2020 stand-up comedy special, Alive From New York. He said,
“I wasn’t gonna do jokes about this, but then my buddy told me, he’s like, ‘Yo. I recently heard that Ariana said she had no idea who you were and she just dated you as a distraction.’ So now I just think it’s like, fair game. She has her songs and stuff and this is what I have.”
Ariana Grande spoke negatively about their relationship as she called the comedian a “distraction.” The two started dating in May 2018 and got engaged shortly after. However, the two ended their relationship in the October of the same year.

The comedian was surprised that there were no repercussions
Pete Davidson went on to point out that if he talked about her like that, his career would’ve been finished. The singer talked about their relationship publicly in an interview with Vogue in 2019. He said,
“And you’re like, ‘Pete, this isn’t fair. You’re airing out dirty laundry, How could you do that? Where did she say this stuff? To her friends? In the confidence of her own home?’ No, she said it on the cover of Vogue magazine. Can you imagine if I did that? My career would be over tomorrow. If I spray-painted myself brown and hopped on the cover of Vogue magazine and just started s***ting on my ex?”
He continued saying, “Can you imagine if I did that s**t? Can you imagine like, ‘Yeah, I was just f**king her because I was bored and then Fortnite came out?’” He then said there were no repercussions as she went on to win Billboard’s Woman of the Year award while he got “called ‘bu**hole eyes’ by barstoolsports.com.” He concluded by saying, “So sometimes life is a little unfair.”

Ariana Grande talked about her relationship with Pete Davidson
In July 2019, Ariana Grande told Vogue that she met the comedian shortly after splitting from Mac Miller. In the interview, she called their relationship a “distraction” and “unrealistic.” She said,
“It was an amazing distraction. It was frivolous and fun and insane and highly unrealistic, and I loved him, and I didn’t know him. I’m like an infant when it comes to real life and this old soul, been-around-the-block-a-million-times artist. I still don’t trust myself with the life stuff.”
The two reportedly broke up in October 2018 after rapper Mac Miller died of an accidental overdose.
