Cazzie David says she felt like she was being 'terrorized' when she realized Pete Davidson covered the tattoos he dedicated to her
Cazzie Davidwrote in her new essay collection that she felt attacked when Pete Davidsonmoved on the day after he ended their 2 1/2 relationship in 2018.
- The 26-year-old said she panicked after her ex uploaded an Instagram photo showing he'd covered his tattoos from their relationship and was wearing someone else's hair tie.
- "I felt like I was being terrorized. Did he want me to take note of the hair tie?" she asked, adding that Davidson used to put her hair ties on his wrist to "wear a piece" of her.
- David added, "Or was he just repeating everything I'd thought had made our relationship special with someone else one day later?"
In her new essay collection, "No One Asked for This," Cazzie David opened up about the 24-hour period in which Pete Davidson dumped her, covered his tattoos related to her, and publicly began a whirlwind relationship with Ariana Grande.
The 26-year-old said that when she was on her way to Washington, DC, to celebrate her sister's college graduation the day after Davidson ended their 2 1/2 relationship over text, the comedian uploaded an Instagram photo showing that he'd covered several of the tattoos that he'd gotten in honor of her."My name, which had been written in cursive across his ring finger, was now covered with black ink," she said, adding that he'd also replaced a tattoo of her favorite emoji with a cloud — Grande's favorite emoji.
She also noticed that her ex was wearing someone else's hair tie around his wrist, a gesture he used to do with her so that he could "wear a piece" of her, she said."I felt like I was being terrorized," she wrote. "Did he want me to take note of the hair tie? Or was he just repeating everything I'd thought had made our relationship special with someone else one day later?"
Since the couple had dated for over two years, David said she'd gotten to know the "Saturday Night Live" cast member's friends well and was shocked to see that they had all followed Grande on Instagram."The haste hurt like an amputation," she wrote. Jon Mesa, Davidson's go-to tattoo artist, said he advised Davidson against getting permanent ink inspired by his girlfriends after he covered up a large cartoon drawing of David from his forearm.
"I did a huge coverup [adding a forest of trees] ... After we were done, I told Pete, 'Hey, dude, let's just stop with the girlfriend tats until after [Grande's] your wife,'" he told Page Six.
Mesa added, "Because relationships come and go, and Pete is a really young man. I think that went in one ear and out the other."Over the course of Davidson and Grande's five-month relationship, the comedian got at least five tattoos inspired by the pop star. And after they called off their engagement in October 2018, Davidson began covering up the body art.
One of the tattoos was the phrase "mille tendresse," which translates to a "thousand tendernesses" in French and matches Grande's ink, on the back of his neck. He's since covered it with the word "cursed."
Though Davidson and David didn't rekindle their relationship after they went their separate ways in 2018, they remain friends. David even included a note to the comedian in the acknowledgments."Pete. I love you. Thank you for being encouraging when you did not have to be. Your bravery inspires me and your friendship means the world to me," she wrote.
