It seems Pete Davidson has "no tears left to cry" over his past relationship with Ariana Grande. In fact, he's genuinely happy she tied the knot with her now-husband, Dalton Gomez, according to sources close to the comedian.

The Saturday Night Live star — who has moved on with Bridgerton actress Phoebe Dynevor — is glad she got her happily ever after. "[Pete] without a shadow of a doubt wants her to be happy," a source close to Davidson claimed, "and he assumes she must be if she is now married."

And while many are eager to hear directly from the comedian following the pop star's marriage to Gomez, "he doesn’t feel like it is his place to make a public gesture," the source continued. However, he's aware that he will most likely be asked about Grande tying the knot "down the road." For now, Davidson apparently plans to remain tight-lipped.

The former flames were first linked after they both split from their longtime partners — the "7 rings" singer was dating the late Mac Miller, and Davidson was dating Larry David's daughter, Cazzie. One month after news of Davidson and Grande's relationship made headlines, the handsome hunk confirmed their engagement in June 2018. The duo called off their whirlwind romance that October.

Overall, Davidson "is happy that she is happy and he wishes her the best," the source insisted. He has no ill will towards Grande and "wouldn’t expect her to have any for him if and when the shoe is on a different foot and he gets married down the line," the insider added. "It is all good."

Another source explained that a lot of time has passed since they have been together, noting they have both been with other people. According to the insider, Davidson knew the brunette beauty has been dreaming of walking down the aisle for a long time, and he's happy she finally got the chance to do so.

“He knows Ariana has wanted to get married ever since she wore a wedding dress during an episode for iCarly years ago," said the source, according to The News. "It was bound to happen eventually and he’s just glad she found someone who makes her happy."

Looking back on their short-lived romance, a third source noted, “Pete had a great time when he was with her," but accepts that it wasn't meant to be, and "he's cool with that."

As OK! reported, the "positions" singer, 27, and Gomez, 25, got married during a "tiny and intimate" ceremony with "less than 20 people." Grande announced they were engaged in December after first debuting their relationship last May in her and Justin Bieber's "Stuck With U" music video.

The newlyweds only began dating last January, but they quarantined together in the Big Apple before Grande followed Gomez to California for his work — Grande purchased a home in the Hollywood Hills where the two spent the remainder of their time in quarantine.

Meanwhile, Davidson has been spending time with his rumored girlfriend in the U.K., OK! reported. Despite the 26-year-old living in America and Dynevor residing in London, the new flames are making it work. 

"Pete and Phoebe are still going strong despite not being able to physically spend time together," an insider dished, adding: "They keep in touch over text and FaceTime. Right now, they’re just focused on work... They’re not looking to rush things."
