Here’s What’s Happened Between Kanye West, Ariana Grande And Pete Davidson
A situation between the three celebrities has escalated following tweets from Kanye West and Ariana Grande on Friday afternoon.
A warning that this story mentions issues surrounding mental illness and suicide.
Kanye West fired off a series of posts on Friday aimed at Drake, calling the Canadian rapper out for a host of reasons including his "sneak disses" on Travis Scott's track "Sicko Mode".
He then accused Drake of calling and threatening him.
In a now-deleted tweet, Ariana Grande jumped online to write that, although "there are grown men arguing online", she and Miley Cyrus were both dropping new singles that day.
"So if y'all could please jus (sic) behave for just like a few hours so the girls can shine that'd be so sick thank u," Grande wrote, ahead of the release of her new song, "Imagine".
On Saturday evening, West drew attention to Grande's tweet, writing that "all of this foolishness weighed on my mental health".
"So @ArianaGrande you know I got love for you but until you’re ready to really make sure everyone’s okay don’t use me or this moment to promote a song," West wrote.
Grande replied to West on Twitter, writing that the tweet was not intended to promote her single.
"I was making a comment ab what men were doing at the time vs. women," she wrote, in a now-deleted tweet.
"It was a joke which I understand now was probably insensitive. I apologise if I was in any way triggering and hope u feel well today."
In a separate tweet, Grande then urged everyone to "stop weaponising mental health".
Pete Davidson Tweets In Support Of Kanye
Ariana Grande's former partner Pete Davidson -- who has always been open about his borderline personality disorder and mental health struggles -- then praised Kanye for his bravery in bringing the issue into the public eye on Instagram.
"Bravo Kanye West for standing up for yourself and speaking out against mental health. I can't explain to you how difficult and scary it is to be honest about stuff like this. We need people like Kanye. No one should ever point fingers at you for your bravery in speaking about mental health. I'm seriously disgusted," Davidson wrote.
Davidson then uploaded a concerning message on Instagram, writing "I really don't want to be on this earth anymore" before deleting his Instagram entirely.
Davidson's friends and colleagues tweeted in support of the 25-year-old, whose whereabouts were reportedly unknown for a few hours after he seemed to have switched his mobile phone off.
This week's SNL guest host Jon Cryer wrote that Pete Davidson was at the Saturday Night Live studios in New York and was "accounted for".
After seeing Davidson's messages online, Grande tweeted an emotional apology, writing: "Man I'm so sorry I told a dumb joke".
“I really didn’t mean any harm. All I want everyone to be healthy and happy. Ao (sic) desperately. Please. My god.”
TMZ reported that Grande had since arrived at 30 Rockefeller Plaza in New York where SNL is filmed.
"I’m downstairs and I’m not going anywhere if you need anyone or anything," Grande tweeted.
"I know u have everyone u need and that’s not me, but I’m here too.”
Those tweets have also since been deleted.
