Pete Davidson's issues with depression seem to be taking a turn for the worst as those close to him say he's still in a very 'wierd' and 'dark' place! Just hours before going on LIVE television on SNL, Pete Davidson took to Instagram and made a very disturbing statement -

“i really don’t want to be on this earth anymore. i’m doing my best to stay 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.”

Moments later he completely deleted his account which sent those close to him in a panic fearing that he might be contemplating suicide. Davidson has been struggling with mental health issues well before his relationship with Ariana Grande, which some say might be the actual cause of the break up.

I had my suspicions about Pete for a while myself especially when he made the drastic change to his hair. That's usually on of the first tell-tale signs of depression when people make sudden life-changing or appearance-changing decisions. Then it was announced that he and Ariana were living together and about to get married after only a couple of months of dating seemed almost like a cry for attention!

Ariana was so concerned by Pete's Instagram post that she rushed down to the SNL set at 30 Rock to try to see him, only to be blocked from Pete's room at his request. Those around Davidson say they are lending as much support as he will accept but only time will tell if he will take it or if it will help at all.
