The news of Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson's breakup was a surprise to many, however the Saturday Night Live star had joked about an inevitable split for months.

Just two months after the comedian proposed, he teased that Grande would soon realise they weren't meant to be together.

"I'm still convinced she's blind or hit her head really hard," he told Variety.

Something is going to happen, and she's going to be like, 'What the f--k is this thing doing around?' For right now, it's rocking.

This wasn't the only joke Davidson made about Grande dumping him. He also laughed about it on a recent episode of Saturday Night Live. When he was asked if they had a prenuptial agreement, Davidson replied, "Well, obviously, I wanted one. So, God forbid we split up and she takes half my sneakers."

When it was pointed out that having a song on her album called "Pete Davidson" should prove her level of commitment, Davidson laughed about that, too. 

"You know, I don't even get royalties for that 'Pete Davidson' song?" he later said. "Like, if we break up, and we won't—we will—but we won't. I'm kidding. But like, in 10 years if God forbid that ever happened, there will be a song called 'Pete Davidson' like playing in speakers at K-Mart and I'll be working there."

News of the couple's split broke on Sunday just about four months after the two became engaged. In addition, the breakup came about a month after the death of Grande's ex-boyfriend, Mac Miller.

"It was way too much too soon," a Grande source told People. "It's not shocking to anyone."
