NEW YORK (AP) — Pete Davidson says he’s not going to “kill myself.”
Davidson is breaking his silence in an Instagram post following his short-lived engagement with Ariana Grande.
The 25-year-old “Saturday Night Live” cast member says he’s been getting bullied online and in public for nine months. But Davidson says he’s spoken about being suicidal publicly “only in the hopes that it will bring awareness and help kids like myself who don’t want to be on this earth.”
Davidson writes, “No matter how hard the internet or anyone tries to make me kill myself, I won’t.”
