Pete Davidson Posts Disturbing Message ... 'I Really Don't Want to Be on This Earth Anymore'

12/15/2018 10:44 AM PST
Exclusive Details

12:15 PM PT -- TMZ has learned Ariana Grande is at the 30 Rock building to see Pete if possible. She tweeted ... "I’m downstairs and I’m not going anywhere if you need anyone or anything. I know u have everyone u need and that’s not me, but i’m here too."

She also apologized for her "dumb joke" about Kanye and Drake's beef that led to the topic of mental health when Kanye went after her. She said ... "i really didn’t mean any harm. all i want everyone to be healthy and happy. so desperately. please. my god." 

Grande also deleted her previous tweets about "triggering" Kanye and commenting on mental health. 

11:58 AM PT -- Pete has made numerous comments on social media in the past about suicidal thoughts to varying degrees. He has now wiped all of that clean by deleting his Instagram account. Sources close to Pete tell TMZ ... they believe his emotional turmoil has escalated recently and are very worried about him.

11:43 AM PT -- Multiple sources have told us Pete is at 'SNL' rehearsing for tonight's show. It's bizarre, but it seems like he may have posted his ominous note while he was at work or on the way in.

11:25 AM PT -- NYPD tells TMZ ... it received a flurry of calls from fans worried about Pete, so they've sent officers out to find him to do a welfare check.

Machine Gun Kelly tweeted about the situation, saying he's on a plane to see Pete to make sure he's good.

Jon Cryer also just tweeted that he heard Davidson is at 'SNL' and accounted for.

Pete Davidson just shared a troubling and cryptic message ... implying he's having suicidal thoughts.

The 'SNL' star posted the note on Instagram, saying ... "i really don't want to be on this earth anymore. i'm doing my best to stay here for you but i actually don't know how much longer i can last."

It's unclear to whom Pete's directing his words, but he adds ... "all i've ever tried to do was help people. just remember i told you so."

Davidson's message seems to be a cry for help -- just minutes before he posted it he responded to Kanye West going after his ex, Ariana Grande, by commending Ye for speaking about against mental health issues.

He said ... "I can't explain to you enough how difficult and scary it is to be honest about stuff like this."

Just 2 weeks ago, Davidson went off on online trolls for harassing and bullying him, telling them he wouldn't kill himself no matter how hard they tried to get him to. Ariana responded not long afterward, telling her fans to "be gentler" with Pete and others ... saying she cares deeply about him and his health.

As you know, it's been a turbulent year for Pete. He got engaged to Grande and then they split, and he also had to deal with a controversy on 'SNL' for making a joke about a wounded vet.

Speaking of 'SNL' ... there's an all-new episode tonight with host Matt Damon and musical guests Miley Cyrus and Mark Ronson. We did some checking, and it doesn't look like Pete was featured in any of the promos this week. It's unclear if he'll show up for work tonight.

Pete's been very open about his mental health issues recently, but it's clear now ... he needs some more help.

Regina King I'd be Honored to Play Michelle Obama ... But Not Yet, Right?

12/15/2018 3:35 PM PST

Regina King's landed her next big movie role ... well, if our cameraman has any say in the matter.

We got the freshly Golden Globe-nominated actress leaving The Sea Fire Grill in NYC Friday night, and with Michelle Obama currently promoting her new book, "Becoming" ... we asked King if she'd be down to play the former First Lady in her inevitable biopic.

Regina thinks we might be jumping the gun, but this is Hollywood ... so when it happens she's not about to say no.

The "If Beale Street Could Talk" and "Seven Seconds" star already has a history of playing real-life women in critically-acclaimed films -- she's Margie Hendrix in the 2004 biopic "Ray" -- so this just makes sense.

Regina might need to work on Michelle's dance moves, though.

Stars and Scars You Be the Judge

12/15/2018 12:45 AM PST

Cardi B is being coy about whether she'll have a change of heart in the marriage department, while Nicki Minaj seems in the market for marriage. So we gotta ask ...

Ronnie Ortiz-Magro Surprisingly Merry Christmas W/ Baby Mama and Fam!!!

12/15/2018 1:34 PM PST

Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and Jen Harley have put their relationship drama, police reports and claims of domestic violence to the side ... to snap some sweet holiday photos.

The 'Jersey Shore' star, Harley and their 8-month old daughter got into the Christmas card spirit this week, and by the smiles on the faces of Ronnie and his baby mama ... you'd never know how nasty it's been between them this year.

We're told the volatile couple posed for these portraits at his Las Vegas home, and Jen's older son joined them for a shot with the family in matching Xmas jammies.

Gotta say ... baby girl Ariana Sky steals the show.

As we reported ... Jen allegedly punched Ronnie in the face and hit him with a phone back in October, giving him a nasty black eye. There was also a domestic incident at Ronnie's home after a fight over their daughter.

All this on top of the violent, bloody car dragging incident in June ... and it's quite a shock the 2 are so full of holiday cheer.

Call it a Christmas miracle.

21 Savage Gets Crowd Chanting ... 'Cardi, Take Offset Back!!!'

12/15/2018 12:47 PM PST

21 Savage teamed up with his boy Offset ... to help him in his quest to win back Cardi B.

The rapper was performing at the Rolling Loud Festival in L.A. Friday and Offset joined him on stage. That's when 21 got the whole crowd to make a pitch to Cardi on behalf of her estranged husband ... and just take him back already.

As we reported ... Offset celebrated his 27th bday at the club later in the evening without Cardi, but wanted to let her know he's still shining brightly.

Earlier in the night, though ... he was begging for his wife to take him back, making it clear his birthday wish is forgiveness and reconciliation.

Not sure the chant from the crowd will help, but we're guessing it won't fall on deaf ears completely.

Scott Eastwood Wet and Frisky At the Beach

12/15/2018 2:25 PM PST

Scott Eastwood's a bundle of energy when his feet hit the sand -- running around and diving in the water -- but he still finds time to chill ... next to a hot chick in a bikini.

The "Pacific Rim: Uprising" star took a dip in the Atlantic Ocean Friday in Miami ... and showed off all of his finest shirtless features in the process.

Clint's son was also seen jogging around the beach, before stopping to chat up a mystery blonde in a tiny swimsuit.

Good times for Scott for sure, but still ... nothing compared to hanging out with some orcas.

Kanye West Goes After Ariana Grande in Drake War ... She Says Sorry for 'Triggering'

12/15/2018 10:25 AM PST

10:00 AM PT -- Ariana's ex, Pete Davidson, has jumped into the conversation, saying ... "Bravo Kanye West for standing up for yourself and speaking out against mental health. I can't explain to you enough how difficult and scary it is to be honest about stuff like this."

He adds ... "We need people like Kanye. No one should ever point fingers at you for your bravery in speaking about mental health. I'm seriously disgusted."

Before Pete posted his message, Ariana tweeted ... "last thing. stop weaponizing mental health. everyone."


9:15 AM PT -- Ariana's replied to Kanye on Twitter, saying ... "with all due respect, i don't need to use anyone to promote anything. period." She adds it was just a joke comparing men and women, but did apologize for being insensitive and sent her well wishes to him.

Some fans were quick to say Ariana needs to retract her apology since she didn't owe him one ... to which she replied, "potentially triggering him? nah regardless of how i feel about a situation, i can also care about their mental health."

Kanye West is jumping all over Ariana Grande for making fun of his war with Drake and adversely affecting his mental illness.

Ariana did indeed make fun of the Kanye and Drake feud Friday, minimizing what Kanye says was a physical threat by Drake to him and his family. Ariana joked about "grown men arguing online," grousing it was taking attention away from her new single.

Ye fired back that he knew Ariana "said this to be cool and didn't mean no harm,"  but he still felt it was shading him. Fair point.

He goes on to say, "All of this foolishness weighed on my mental health so @arianagrande ..." In another post, he says, "No one would ever choose to end up in a mental hospital and diagnosed with a mental disorder but god chose me to publicly go through this journey and it is beautiful."

If we dare to interpret ... Kanye seems to be saying Ariana -- for whom he says he has love -- knows full well he's bipolar yet she jumped into the fray for pure self-promotion and in the process upset him.  

It's interesting ... Kanye never called out Miley Cyrus. Ariana not only tweeted the guy fight was a distraction for the release of her single, but it also did the same for Miley. And, Miley was quick to respond by also making light of Kanye's fight with Drake. Yet Ye was silent on Miley.

We got Kanye in New York City Friday and asked him about the nature of the threat Drake leveled against him and his fam, but he was mum. We tried finding out from various Kim and Kanye sources all day long exactly what Drake said, but everyone is locked up tight as a drum.

Offset There's a Silver Lining ... To My Split with Cardi

12/15/2018 7:47 AM PST

Offset celebrated his 27th birthday in high, sparkling fashion ... and the prized present was clear to all.

Offset hit up Poppy in WeHo in the wee hours of Saturday ... wearing a Swarovski crystal mask were told cost around $11,000.  

The mask's designer, Laurel DeWitt, tells us it was handmade for the rapper, too.

You couldn't tell from what went down inside that Offset was still pining away for a reconciliation with Cardi B.   

But, earlier in the night he was begging for his wife to take him back. He makes it clear his birthday wish is forgiveness, after embarrassing Cardi B and breaking her heart.

When he leaves the club he talks a bit about turning 27, saying he "beat the statistics." And, of course, he couldn't drive off without showing off some pretty insane bling.

Happy birthday. 

Diddy Celebrates Birthdays of Twins and Kim

12/15/2018 7:27 AM PST

Diddy was all about celebrating his family Friday night ... the twins and his beloved Kim Porter.

Diddy threw an early birthday bash for his twins, D'Lila and Jessie, who will turn 12 on December 21. Waiting for the actual day would be dicey since people flee for the holidays.

The 80's-themed party looked awesome. It went down in L.A. at World on Wheels. The girls were dressed in neon outfits and Diddy was rocking a neon "Sean C" sweatshirt.

This has gotta be a tough time for the family. Kim Porter's birthday 48th birthday would have been today. TMZ broke the story, Kim was found dead at her home last month. The L.A. County Coroner is still trying to determine cause of death.

Diddy paid tribute to Kim, declaring it Kim Porter Day WORLDWIDE.

We got Diddy and the girls coming in and leaving the party. They seemed in good spirits.

Happy birthday to all. 

Remy Ma and Papoose Baby Born after Tough Labor

12/15/2018 8:18 AM PST

Remy Ma and Papoose are now proud parents ... after an emotional struggle to have a child.

Remi gave birth to a baby girl Friday night, after going through what her hubby said was a "tough labor."

The 38-year-old Remi and 40-year-old Papoose have not revealed the name, but have been calling the little girl, "The Golden Child" ... shorthand for a miracle baby.

Remi has made no secret about the difficulty they've faced in have a baby. She suffered a miscarriage last year and had been taking steps to ensure a successful pregnancy.

The little girl joins their blended fam ... Remi has an 18-year-old son named Jason, and Papoose has a 15-year-old daughter named Dejanae, along with 2 other older children. 

Looks like the new edition will now star in their reality show, "Meet the Mackies."

Oprah No Way Would I Host Oscars

12/15/2018 7:32 AM PST

Oprah Winfrey was an icon of few words Friday night ... in fact, she was an icon of just one word ... "NO!"

We got O in New York City entering the Whitby Hotel and asked if she'd be open to hosting the Oscars if the Academy asked her. Her thumbs-down answer is unequivocal, but the way she delivers it is even more telling.

It seems like a no-win for just about anyone who takes the gig after the Kevin Hart debacle. Hart is still taking heat for his homophobic comments years ago, and the Academy is also taking a beating for putting its collective finger up and seeing which way the wind was blowing. 

As you know, the Academy tapped Kevin for the job, knowing full well he had made homophobic comments -- they had been widely reported in the past. When people started criticizing the choice, the Academy got immediately righteous and demanded another apology.

Prada 'Sambo' Figurine ... Triggers Cries of Racism

12/15/2018 8:06 AM PST

Prada just pulled a bonehead blunder that a lot of people are calling racist.

The high-end Manhattan shop put this purse in its window with a Sambo-like doll attached. People went nuts on social media once the image was posted. Some felt it resembled a Sambo figure ... others say it resembled a monkey and some felt it was a cross between the two.

It's pretty incredible that the folks at Prada were this tone-deaf because it's hard to imagine how they didn't see the wave of criticism that would befall them. 

The company issued a statement Friday saying it "abhors racist imagery." It went on to say the figure was meant as "fantasy charms." It's clearly a bad fantasy.

The figurines have been 86'd from Prada.  

Offset I Only Have 1 BDay Wish Cardi Come Back!!!

12/14/2018 8:02 PM PST

Offset spent his birthday alone -- but he clearly doesn't want it to be like that -- because his one bday wish is to get his wife back.

Offset turned 27 Friday and posted a video begging for Cardi B to forgive him. The Migos rapper apologizes for his actions and embarrassing her. He says he's sorry for, "Breaking your heart, our promise and God's promise."

TMZ broke the story ... Offset is determined to spend Christmas as a family with Cardi and their daughter Kulture. He mentions that in the apology video ... and says he's still so in love with Cardi.

As for the alleged text messages from Offset where he tried to set up a threesome with Cuban Doll and Summer Bunny ... Offset confesses to those too, but makes one thing clear, "I didn't f*** that girl I was entertaining."

It was just last week when Cardi, very publicly, split with Offset ... telling the world they were over and that a divorce was likely looming.

Not much time left for Cardi to grant Offset's wish on his actual birthday ... but maybe a reconciliation is in the near future.
