The SNL star addressed his break-up with the 'God Is A Woman' singer after she dropped her new single 'thank u, next', which contains lyrics name-dropping her ex-boyfriends including Davidson, Mac Miller and Big Sean.

Pete Davidson has spoken out about his recent break-up with Ariana Grande, just minutes after she released her surprise new single 'thank u, next'.

The 24-year-old comedian addressed the split during this weekend's episode of Saturday Night Live, offering some kind words to his former fiancé.

“The last thing I will say is I know some of you are curious about the breakup, but the truth is it’s nobody’s business, and sometimes things just don’t work out, and that’s okay,” said Davidson.

“She’s a wonderful, strong person, and I genuinely wish her all the happiness in the world," he added, after dropping in a joke about "moving back in with his mom."

Shortly before the show aired, Grande dropped a new song which hears the 25-year-old singer address all of her ex-boyfriends by name including Davidson, Big Sean and Mac Miller, who died on 7th September aged 26.

“Thought I’d end up with Sean, but he wasn’t a match / Wrote some songs about Ricky, now I listen and laugh / Even almost got married, and for Pete, I’m so thankful / Wish I could say ‘Thank you’ to Malcolm, 'cause he was an angel,” she sings.

Last week, Grande indirectly slammed Davidson on Twitter after he made a joke poking fun at their short-lived engagement during a teaser video for the show.

The 'God Is A Woman' singer, who dropped her fourth album 'Sweetener' two months ago, told fans last week that her fifth album is already on the way and will feature the new single.
