Pete Davidson has closed down his Instagram account amid reports he has split up from Ariana Grande.

The 'Saturday Night Live' star and the 'No Tears Left to Cry' hitmaker were recently revealed to have called time on their engagement, and though neither of them have commented on the news, the 24-year-old comedian has now deactivated his profile on the social media app.

Pete had previously deleted his Instagram photos earlier this year and subsequently explained that he was planning to take a break from social media because the internet "is an evil place".

In response to fan speculation about his reasons for removing his photos, he said in an Instagram Story: "No, there's nothing wrong. No nothing happened. No there's nothing cryptic about anything. I just don't wanna be on Instagram anymore, or on any social media platform. (sic)"

According to TMZ, the pair decided to end their relationship over the weekend after agreeing that it just wasn't working out. 

The former couple are believed to still have love for each other and haven't ruled out rekindling their romance in the future.

The news came just a day after Ariana's manager Scooter Braun said the star still "needs time" to recover after a tough few years, which saw 22 people die at her concert in Manchester, north west England, after a suicide bomber detonated a bomb in the venue's foyer area and more recently, the death of her ex-boyfriend Mac Miller from a suspected overdose at the age of just 26.

Scooter said: "One of the most amazing things about this organization is that they help people when they're having the worst moments in their life, and they give sympathy and a calm nature to people in need in those moments. And you saw your invite, someone I'm very close to was supposed to come sing for you today, and because of things that she's going through, she couldn't be here today. And while I was frustrated, being the manager, my wife, being who she always is, just looked at me and she goes, 'She needs this time.'"

Meanwhile, Pete previously revealed he and Ariana bonded over their failed relationships.

He said: "Timing I feel like is everything, and we both were in a similar situation at the same time. It's like the weirdest, coolest thing that's ever happened."
