Pete Davidson has revealed a troll threatened to kill him because Ariana Grande is 'too hot for him', weeks after her ex Mac Miller's death from a suspected overdose.
The Saturday Night Live comedian, 24, made the shock admission when he appeared on The Howard Stern Show on Monday, admitting someone wanted to 'shoot him in the face' over his relationship with his singer fiancée.
He said:'I got a death threat,' Davidson said. 'Someone wanted to shoot me in the face. Because she's so hot.
Shock: Pete Davidson has revealed a troll threatened to kill him because Ariana Grande is 'too hot for him', weeks after her ex Mac Miller's death from a suspected overdose
'You know how insane that is? It's like, am I that ugly that someone wants to shoot me in the face?' They're like, no f**k this guy. What did I do?'
The couple got engaged in June after a month of dating, with the pair fresh from break-ups with the late rapper Mac Miller, and actress Cazzie David.
The couple has been shying away from the public eye since Miller died on September 7.
They were spotted out together for the first time since his passing on Tuesday, as they took a walk through Manhattan.
Pete has reportedly been a 'huge support' for the four-time Grammy nominee as she mourns the death of her rapper ex.
Mac was found dead in his Studio City home earlier this month after a friend called 911 following an apparent drug overdose.
The emergency call was placed for a patient in cardiac arrest but the 26-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene.
TMZ reports that authorities with the Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner said they have 'deferred' declaring his acute cause of death pending toxicology results, a process that takes between a month and six weeks.
The Self Care rapper dated Grande from 2016 until May of 2018.
The same month of their breakup, Miller crashed his Mercedes SUV into a pole and fled the scene. He was later arrested for a DUI and hit and run.
At the time of his DUI, trolls harassed Grande online and blamed her for causing him to drive under the influence.
Following his passing earlier this month, the singer was once again victimized by Mac's fans online who held her responsible for his apparent overdose.
On the day that the news broke of his death, the singer was forced to disable the comments on her Instagram account due to the vicious and vile comments by trolls.
