Sources told People magazine that the comedian decided block Ariana to ensure his well-being. "He blocked her and said, 'Stop reaching out. You’re not good for my health. I can’t have this in my life,'" the insider told the outlet.
The report arrives nearly two months after Davidson and Ariana called off their engagement. On Monday, the Saturday Night Live star recently posted a message, claiming he has been relentlessly harassed since he started dating the Sweetener singer.
"I'm trying to understand how when something happens to a guy the whole entire world just trashes him without any facts or frame of reference," wrote Davidson, who has borderline personality disorder. "[...] I've been getting online bullied and in public by people for 9 months. I've spoken about BPD and 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 [...] No matter how hard the internet or anyone tries to make me kill myself, I won't."
Shortly after Davidson shared his message, Ariana addressed the situation in what appears to be a direct message to a fan. She also confirmed Davidson had blocked her:
Ariana went a step further and urged her fans to stop treating Davidson so harshly.
"I know u already know this but I feel I need to remind my fans to please be gentler to others," she wrote. "I care deeply about Pete and his health. I'm asking you to be gentler with others, even on the internet."
