As fans know already, Ariana Grande was quick to go check up on her ex-fiancé, Pete Davidson as soon as she saw his cry for help on social media. But while unfortunately, the SNL comedian refused to see her, one psychologist tells HollywoodLife that the singer reacted appropriately in the given situation.
A few days ago, Pete posted a message on Instagram that sounded just like a suicide note and then deleted all his social media, causing fans and celeb friends of his to freak out!
One of those filled with worried upon reading his cry for help was none other than Ariana who was quick to go to the SNL studios, where he was rehearsing for the latest show, to be there for him.
Now, Dr. Sherrie Campbell explained to the outlet that Ariana did the right thing since when someone deals with suicidal thoughts, the first thing their loved ones should do is make sure they are out of harm’s way and immediately let them know how loved they are.
‘Immediately call the person in need, knowing that the person will likely not answer. From here if you are in close proximity call this person’s parents, their friends, sibling or their roommates: whoever can help you. If the threat’s serious and you have a terrible gut feeling, call the police and request a wellness check,’ the licensed psychologist explained.
The specialist then went on to say that ‘Many friends are afraid that if they take these steps their friend in need will then hate them. Better to be hated than to wonder what would’ve happened had you not taken action. Better be safe than sorry.’
Sure enough, Pete did not want to see his ex during that time, but there is no doubt that Ariana expressing such concern brought Pete great comfort anyway.
