This isn’t the first time Davidson has joked about his relationship with the pop star.

On Oct. 20, Davidson made his first appearance after the breakup, co-hosting the comedy show Judd & Pete for America with Judd Apatow at Largo at the Coronet in West Hollywood.

“Well, as you could tell, I don’t want to be here. There’s a lot going on,” Davidson said to the crowd. “Does anybody have any open rooms? Looking for a roommate?”

Davidson moved into Grande’s US$16-million apartment in New York City while they were together. According to E!News, Davidson is “staying with family” and “doing fine” after the breakup.

During his set, Davidson also made a joke about covering all the tattoos he has that were dedicated to the 25-year-old Sweetener singer.

“Um, I’ve been covering a bunch of tattoos, that’s fun,” Davidson told the crowd. “I’m f**king 0 for 2 in the tattoo [department]. Yeah, I’m afraid to get my mom tattooed on me because she’d leave, that’s how bad it is.”

“So, obviously you know I, we [Ariana and I] broke up or whatever, but when me and her first got engaged we got tattoos,” he later said.

“And it was like in a magazine, like, ‘Was Pete Davidson stupid?’ And 93 per cent of it said yes,” Davidson told the audience. “So my boy, he was like, ‘Don’t listen to that s**t man. They’re literally f**king haters.’ And I’m like, yeah, f**k that. I’m not stupid. And the other day we were in my kitchen and he was like, ‘Yo bro. Turns out you were stupid.’”

Apatow thanked Davidson for showing up to the show following the split.

“Well, you put me on the flyer, I had to,” Davidson said, joking, “F**k my feelings.”

“I care more about America than your feelings, I do,” Apatow joked. “I care more about America than Pete’s feelings.”

“I feel like I am America,” Davidson said. “I’m a good guy that just keeps getting kicked in the dick. You’re like, ‘Ah, that f**king poor kid. Hope he doesn’t kill himself.’ That’s America.”

Saturday Night Live airs on Global on Saturdays at 11:30 p.m. ET/PT.
