Pete Davidson and Ariana Grande are living separate lives on social media nearly two months after calling off their engagement.

Grande, 26, messaged a fan on Monday, December 3, admitting she doesn’t have access to Davidson’s posts. “I have never encouraged anything but forgiveness. I care deeply about Pete and his health and would never encourage any kind of mistreatment,” the singer wrote. “I haven’t seen any of it because I’m blocked but I want you to know that I would never want or encourage that ever and you should know that. I care about him deeply.”

The “Thank U, Next” singer’s remarks came hours after Davidson spoke out about being bullied online, especially after the pair ended their four-month engagement at the end of October. “I’m trying to understand how when something happens to a guy the entire world just trashes him without any facts or frame of reference,” he wrote via Instagram earlier on Monday. “No matter how hard the internet or anyone tries to make me kill myself. I won’t. I’m upset I even have to say this.”

I’m asking you to be gentler with others, even on the internet.”
