While the whole world was watching Ariana Grande ditch her engagement ring once and for all during her Grammys performance, her ex-fiancé Pete Davidson was too busy enjoying a basketball game in New York.

The Saturday Night Live host was the talk of Twitter, following Ariana’s performance, but choosing to ignore Ari’s fans being sent into a frenzy, Pete stopped by Madison Square Gardens to watch the Brooklyn Nets take on the New York Knicks.

And it looked like he was enjoying himself, as he chilled with a pal and caught a basketball court side.

Ariana dated Pete back in 2018 and they famously confirmed their engagement just a month after getting together.

She had recently split from rapper Mac Miller and following Mac’s death in September the same year, Ariana decided to call off her and Pete’s romance.

Things ended for the couple in October and Ariana later poured her heart out in new album Thank U, Next. Her lyrics told of her heartache over losing Mac and splitting with Pete and she broke down several times on stage while away on tour, as she delivered the emotional tracks.

But, the 2020 Grammys on Sunday night saw her wave goodbye to that Thank U, Next era and fans were certain Ari threw shade in Pete’s direction when she finished her performance by taking off her engagement ring and putting it back in its box.

‘WAS THAT PETE’S RING SHE JUST PUT AWAY??! @ArianaGrande deserves everything #GRAMMYs,’ one fan posted.

A second said: ‘Wow @ArianaGrande CAME for Pete Davidson I LOVE HER,’ while a third fan commented: ‘Ariana grande just shaded the hell out of Pete #Grammys2020,’

Since splitting with Ariana, Pete has gone on to date Kate Beckinsale and model Kaia Gerber.

He split with actress Kate, 46, last year, and later struck up a romance with 18-year-old Kaia, but reports revealed earlier this month that the couple have now ‘cooled things off’.
