Fans of Saturday Night Live comedian Pete Davidson have been in turmoil after the 25-year-old posted a message that suggested he ‘didn’t want to be on this earth’.
As messages of support flooded in for Pete, there were deeper concern for his wellbeing after he deleted his Instagram account.
Pete had admitted previously that he’d not coped very well with the split from ex-financee, Ariana Grande.
With concerns mounting for his welfare, there was pleasing news from Jon Cryer, who tweeted that that the comedian had apparently arrived at SNL.
Writing on Twitter, Jon calmed the nerves of Pete’s followers, by writing: "Am hearing Pete Davidson is at SNL and accounted for. We are thinking of you, Pete. You are loved. (And just a heads up, when you finally turn on your cell, it’s gonna go apes*** for a little while)."
The worry had been triggered by a post to his 2.5 million followers, in which Pete shared a message that conveyed his inner feelings.
Pete wrote: "I really don’t want to be on this earth anymore. I’m doing my best to star 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. Just remember I told you so."
This was followed by a heart emoji and has left his fans reeling, as they urge him to ‘stay strong’.
Some 40 minutes later, he had deleted his account and there was a huge outpouring of concern for him on social media.
Pete had previously opened up to his followers about his borderline personality disorder (BPD) and that he had been feeling suicidal previously in his life.
He split from Ariana, 25, a couple months ago and has not really come to terms with it since. Ariana in the meantime has shared an apology to Pete about how their relationship ended, in her hit single, ‘thank u, next’.
He wrote on Instagram at the time: "I’ve kept my mouth shut. Never mentioned any names, never said a word about anyone or anything. I’m trying to understand how when something happens to a guy the whole entire world just trashes him without any facts or frame of reference.
"Especially in today’s climate where everyone loves to be offended and upset it truly is mind boggling. I’ve been getting online bullied and in public by people for 9 months.
"I’ve spoken about BPD and being suicidal publicly only in the hopes that it will help bring awareness and help kids like myself who don’t want to be on this earth.
"I just want you guys to know. No matter how hard the internet or anyone tries to make me kill myself. I won’t. I’m upset I even have to say this. To all those holding me down and seeing this for what it is – I see you and I love you."
His fans sent him supportive messages and praised him for being open about the way he feels and he will now need these fans more than ever.
