The Reason Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson Skipped the Emmys Will Break Your Heart
Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson were originally scheduled to attend the Emmys, but when the ceremony rolled around on Monday night, the couple was noticeably absent. Given that Pete's show, Saturday Night Live, was nominated (and won) several awards, it made sense that the pair would attend, so what happened?
"Contrary to reports, Ariana will not be attending the Emmys tonight," Ariana's team said in a statement to E! News. "Pete has also opted to not attend to be with her in New York. Given the events of the past couple of years, Ariana is going to take some much needed time to heal and mend. She will be staying close to home and using this period to spend time with her loved ones and work on new music without deadline. She thanks her fans for their understanding."
Monday night's ceremony came 10 days after Ariana's ex-boyfriend Mac Miller was found dead in his home after an apparent overdose. Ariana has kept a low profile since his passing, and her last public appearance was at Aretha Franklin's funeral earlier this month.
