“As soon as he posted that, his circle immediately jumped into action,” a source with knowledge of the situation told CNN. “That includes his ex-fiancee, Ariana Grande, who dropped everything to be there for him.”
The source added that Grande went to the “SNL” studio on Saturday to check on Davidson but she did not end up speaking with him.
Jada Pinkett Smith, Jon Cryer and Nicki Minaj were among those who took to social media to offer support to Davidson over the weekend.
The comedian appeared briefly on Saturday’s episode of “SNL” to introduce a performance by Miley Cyrus and Mark Ronson. He also appeared in a pre-recorded skit.
Davidson’s good friend and co-star in the upcoming film, “Big Time Adolescence,” Machine Gun Kelly, tweeted that he was getting on a flight to check on his friend.
A few hours later, Kelly and Davidson were photographed together following the show.
Davidson’s concerning Instagram post and his account have been deleted. He’s been open about his battles with depression and Borderline Personality Disorder [BPD.]
Earlier this month, Davidson shared a lengthy message about the bullying he endured during and after his relationship with Grande.
“I’ve been in and out of mental health facilities since I was 9,” he told Variety. “I tried to drown myself in the pool when I was in the fourth or fifth grade. I was trying to get my head stuck in the ladder in the deep end, so I would not be able to get up. But I’m too much of a p***y, and my head is too small.”
He also discussed being diagnosed with Crohn’s disease in high school, which led to an addiction to marijuana and stints in rehab.
“The last few years have been real rough with me,” he told the outlet. “I took all these mental health classes and really spent a lot of time getting me good.”
Reps for Davidson and NBC declined to comment.
