Pete Davidson is "doing fine" in the wake of his split from Ariana Grande thanks to his "strong support system".

The 'Saturday Night Live' star is "staying with family" in New York after his engagement to the 'No Tears Left To Cry' hitmaker came to an end and his loved ones are keeping his spirits up.

A source told E! News: "Pete's doing fine. He has a strong support system of family and friends around him that are keeping him laughing."

Despite his sadness, the 24-year-old comic has no ill feelings towards his former fiancee.

The insider added: "While Pete's focusing on himself, he always wishes the best for Ari." 

Meanwhile, Ariana broke her silence following the split on Instagram on Tuesday, admitting the break up was "very sad" and advising her fans she was planning to take a break from social media.

She wrote: "time to say bye bye to the internet for just a lil bit. it's hard not to bump news n stuff that i'm not tryna to see rn [right now]. it's very sad and we're all tryin very hard to keep goin. love u. and thank u for bein here always. (sic)"

The 25-year-old singer's social media accounts are currently still active.

Sources previously claimed the 'Bang Bang' hitmaker instigated the split because news of her ex-boyfriend Mac Miller's death left her "emotionally unavailable".

One insider said: "Ariana made the final decision. It was time to realise this wasn't the right time for them and Pete is incredibly heartbroken. Pete is still is so in love with her. He wanted his whole world to revolve around her but she was emotionally unavailable. He realises she was at her limit with pressure from everyone and everything around her. There were days she just wanted to run away from the world just to get some peace and quiet and piece of mind. Pete had to give her that space out of love."
