“Saturday Night Live” star Pete Davidson pulled a major no-no. New reports claim the formerly engaged actor broke a low-key truce he made with Ariana Grande by joking about their relationship on an “SNL” promo.
According to reports, Grande took personal offense when Davidson referenced their break-up in a new clip.
Our sources say Pete got word Ariana was upset, and decided he didn’t want to go through with the skit he’d written for this week’s ‘SNL’ — they had an agreement, after all. He discussed it with executive producer, Lorne Michaels … and he signed off on pumping the brakes. As for the promo airing? We’re told it was already in the works, and it was too late to pull it.

In a since-deleted Twitter post, Ariana fired a direct response at Pete’s “SNL” promo.
Davidson cracked a joke about the fact he’s single during a promo for this weekend’s ‘SNL’ — asking musical guest Maggie Rogers if she wanted to get married. Our sources connected to ‘SNL’ say Pete had been in good spirits while prepping for the show — and was open to making jokes about jumping into relationships too soon. So, that’s what happened during the promo … but Ariana Grande wasn’t laughing — she tweeted a shot at her ex. “For somebody who claims to hate relevancy u sure love clinging to it huh. thank u. next.” (TMZ)
Last month, Ariana hit up her Instagram Story with a clip of late ex-boyfriend Mac Miller getting dressed up.
Recently, Pete Davidson addressed their publicized split during a charity event.
Davidson further addressed his breakup, saying, “Well, as you can tell, I don’t want to be here. There’s a lot going on. Anybody have any open rooms? Anybody looking for a roommate? I’ve been covering a bunch of tattoos, that’s fun. I’m f*cking 0-for-2 in the tattoo department. Yeah, I’m afraid to get my mom tattooed on me because she’d leave.” (The Hollywood Reporter)
