Pete Davidson breaks his silence on his Cazzie David’s essay about their agonizing breakup

Pete Davidson broke his silence on his ex-girlfriend Cazzie David’s new memoir, No One Asked for This, which included an essay about their 2018 breakup.

Despite the best-selling author, 26, revealing how she was left in agony after the 27-year-old SNL star ended their two-year relationship over text, they’ve managed to become amiable pals.    

‘I’m really happy for her. It did well, and, you know, we’re cool. I wish her nothing but the best,’ the actor told Insider of David’s new book. ‘I think she wrote a really funny book and I hope it stays on the chart.’

David’s essay collection debuted as number two on The New York Times’ paperback non-fiction best seller list on December 6.

Larry David’s eldest daughter, who is the creator and star of the critically-acclaimed web series Eighty-Sixed, previously revealed she showed her former flame the essay about him, titled Erase Me, before it was published. 

‘It was a really pivotal moment in my life,’ she told The Los Angeles Times of their split. ‘And writing about it has caused me a ton of anxiety, especially because I talk so much about hating the attention it brought me.’

She continued: ‘Why would I bring more attention to myself by writing about it? But there’s nothing that’s gonna be worse than what I already experienced with that.’ 

In Erase Me, David opened up about their breakup and seeing him move on with his ex-fiancée Ariana Grande, who is now engaged to luxury realtor Dalton Gomez.   

At first, David admitted that she was fearful of breaking up with the comedian because ‘previously, self-harm and suicide threats had come about from trivial circumstances.’

But, Pete ended up breaking up with her over text, before moving on with Grande just weeks after their split and covering all of his tattoos dedicated to her.

David couldn’t stop imagining Davidson and the 27-year-old Grammy winner ‘baby voice whispering sweet nothings in his ear dubbed over his past declarations of love and trust to me.’

The King of Staten Island producer-star wound up breaking up with Ariana in October 2018 four months after getting engaged and five months after they began their whirlwind romance.

Cazzie and Davidson are now friends and she even thanked him in her book’s acknowledgements: ‘Pete. I love you…Your bravery inspires me and your friendship means the world to me.’ 

In February, the funnyman told Charlamagne Tha God: ‘[Cazzie] is f***ing hilarious. She’s another one of the funniest people I’ve met. She’ll have a show in a couple of years for sure.’ 

The Emerson College alum is currently penning a script for HBO Max after Amazon Studios passed on her Half-Empty pilot last year.
