Ariana Grande has made a desperate plea to ex-fiance Pete Davidson, after he posted a gravely concerning message about his mental wellbeing.
The Satruday Night Live comedian shared his inner feelings with his 2.5 million followers and admitted that he ‘didn’t want to be on this earth anymore’.
The 25-year-old comic then deleted all his social media accounts as fans posted messages of support.
Ariana, also 25, then posted an apology to Pete for a "dumb joke" that she had posted previously. The singer believes that this may have been the catalysts for Pete’s current demeanour.
With fans worrying about Pete, Ariana tweeted: "man i’m so sorry i told a dumb joke. i really didn’t mean any harm. all i want everyone to be healthy and happy. so desperately. please. my god."
She then followed that minutes later with a message of support that seemed to indicate that she was in the same building as Pete.
Ariana tweeted that despite her not being ‘who he needs’ but wanted Pete to know that she was ‘there for him too’.
The superstar singer wrote: "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."
Her concern was sparked by an Instagram post in which Pete had shared a message that read: "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.
The "dumb joke" that Ariana alludes to seems to be linked to the argument that rappers Kanye West and Drake were having.
Ariana had apologised to Kanye West after he accused her of using his mental health problems to promote her new record.
In a series of tweets, the chart-topping singer said she regretted comments made yesterday in which she appeared to ask West and Drake to stop feuding so the public could focus on the release of her new single, Imagine.
Following social media backlash from West’s fans, Ariana said she, "hated the internet," but asked that people, "stop weaponising mental health".
It comes after West published a series of tweets attacking Canadian rapper Drake.
The pair have been involved in a dispute over alleged "diss" records and allegations of betrayal.
Kanye, who is married to reality television star Kim Kardashian West, was earlier this year forced to deny rumours his wife had ever been romantically involved with Drake.
On Thursday, Kanye returned to the feud by posting a series of tweets including one suggesting Drake had asked permission to sample one of his songs.
Ariana tweeted asking if the pair could "behave for just like a few hours so the girls can shine" before West responded, accusing her of making a "joke out of mental health".
The rapper has previously said he experiences bipolar disorder while also claiming he only suffers from insomnia.
In a subsequent series of tweets, Ariana apologised for "triggering" Kanye and wished him well.
She said: "With all due respect, I don’t need to use anyone to promote anything. Period. I was making a comment about what men were doing at the time vs. women.
"It was a joke which i understand now was probably insensitive. I apologise if I was in any way triggering and hope u feel well today."
Responding to a fan who said she had not needed to apologise, Ariana added: "For potentially triggering him? nah regardless of how I feel about a situation, I can also care about their mental health."
