Days after reports surfaced that Pete Davidson is casually dating Ariana Grande, the “Saturday Night Live” star took blasted critics who said people with mental illness shouldn’t be in relationships.
“Normally I wouldn’t comment on something like this cause like f–k you. But I been hearing a lot of ‘people with bpd [borderline personality disorder] can’t be in relationships’ talk. I just wanna let you know that’s not true,” Davidson, 24, posted in an Instagram story Thursday night. “Just because someone has a mental illness does not mean they can’t be happy and in a relationship. It also doesn’t mean that person makes a relationship toxic.”
Davidson, who recently split from girlfriend Cazzie David, revealed last fall he had been diagnosed with borderline personality disorder.
“Everybody is different and there are a lot of treatments for mental illnesses and I have done/am doing all of them. And I encourage those who struggle to seek help as well it has changed my life for the better,” he continued. “I just think it’s f–ked up to stigmatize people as crazy and say that they are unable to do stuff that anyone can do. It’s not their fault and it’s the wrong way for people to look at things.”
Davidson concluded his post with some words of encouragement.
“Mental illness is not a joke it’s a real thing. There’s kids out there killing themselves. And it’s f–king horrific. For all those struggling I want you to know that I love you and I understand you and it is going to be okay. That’s all. Love to everyone,” he stated.
Grande, 24, has also had to deal with trolls since news of the relationship broke.
After a fan on Twitter commented on her budding romance with Davidson, stating, “Mac Miller totalling his G wagon and getting a DUI after Ariana Grande dumped him for another dude after he poured his heart out on a ten song album to her called the divine feminine is just the most heartbreaking thing happening in Hollywood,” the pop star set the record straight.
“How absurd that you minimize female self-respect and self-worth by saying someone should stay in a toxic relationship because he wrote an album about them, which btw isn’t the case (just Cinderella is ab me),” Grande wrote. “I am not a babysitter or a mother and no woman should feel that they need to be.”
Miller, 26, was arrested for driving under the influence last week. He and Grande dated for nearly two years.
