Celebs and Fans Offer Support to Pete Davidson Following Alarming Messages

Friends and fans from all over have come out to support Pete Davidson who admitted this morning that he is really struggling to remain with us here on earth. The 25-year-old comedian has dealt with a great deal this year following a romantic split from pop star Ariana Grande as well as opening up to the world about his mental health issues. In a since deleted post, the SNL castmate wrote:

"i really don't want to be on this earth anymore," the post read. "i'm doing my best to stay here for you but somewhere 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."

The message came right after Davidson took Kanye's side in the short Twitter feud between him and Ariana. In a message, Pete wrote:

"Bravo Kanye West for standing up for yourself and speaking out against mental health,” Davidson wrote. “I can’t explain to you enough how difficult and scary it is to be honest about stuff like this. We need people like Kanye.”

Davidson eventually deleted his Instagram after posting the worrisome message but waves of love and support flooded the internet. Actress, Taraji P. Henson, took a moment to remind Davidson that he is indeed needed.

"I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!! YOUR VOICE IS NEEDED. YOUR LIFE MATTERS!!!!!! YOU MATTER BABY!!!!!!! I love you and I SEE SO MUCH LOVE IN YOU!!!!" her comment read. "Your light is bright even if you don't see it at times..... WE DOsomewhereand by looking at a lot of these comments YOU LIGHT UP ALOT OF PPL and we are sending you all the love you put into the world. YOU MATTER!! YOU ARE NEEDED!! I LOVE YOU"

Jada Pinkett Smith sent an encouraging note reminding Pete that she has been in his shoes and to just hang in there, "Pete Davidson ... hang in there. There is a lot of help out here," she wrote. "Surrender to some love some where around you ... today! Right now! And then ... let in the help that will become available. I’m praying for you Pete. I’ve been there. It gets better."

In the past, Davidson has been very vocal about his mental health issues. During an interview with Howard Stern, Pete clued us into his Borderline Personality Disorder. 

Nicki Minaj even hopped in to ask all the readers to go give Pete some love. 

"Go & give this man some love. My God" she tweeted. "We can be so insensitive. God bless Kanye & Pete. Being flippant about mental illness speaks more about you than them. Stop saying the word love & live it. Love is an action," she wrote.


Ariana Grande followed up her tweet apologizing to Kanye West for being insensitive regarding the issue of mental health, with a message directed to ex-fiance, Pete. 

I’m downstairs and I’m not going anywhere if you need anyone or anything. I know u have everyone u need and that’s not me, but i’m here too.

"I’m downstairs and I’m not going anywhere if you need anyone or anything. I know u have everyone u need and that’s not me, but i’m here too," she said.
