On Saturday, the Saturday Night Live star posted a since-deleted note on Instagram hinting that he’s experiencing suicidal thoughts.
"I really don't want to be on this earth anymore. I'm doing my best to stay here for you but i actually don't know how much longer i can last. All i've ever tried to do was help people," Davidson wrote. "Just remember I told you so."
He closed his Instagram account afterward.
Kelly then tweeted, “[I’m] in the plane now on the way to see Pete. Gonna make sure he’s good, I promise. can’t have my boy in the darkness like that.”
Davidson also received support from his ex-fiancee, Ariana Grande, who claimed to be close by and ready to help soon after his post.
The comic only made one, very brief appearance on SNL after his post. He introduced Miley Cyrus and Mark Ronson’s second performance of the night. After the taping, Davidson was spotted exiting a black SUV at the Four Seasons hotel in NYC and offering the rapper a hug as he said goodbye before climbing back in, in pictures published by E! News.
Davidson has been forthright about his struggles with depression. But his short-lived romance with Grande elevated the ire directed at him online to a whole other level. He’s also previously admitted that he got death threats from her fans prior to their engagement ending.
Following his troubling Instagram post, Davidson has received an outpouring of support from fans and fellow celebs alike including Nicki Minaj, Meghan McCain and more.
