(Newser) – Although it was "very sad," the breakup of Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson at least seemed to be civil. Apparently that tenuous detente has ended, at least per the buzz around the 25-year-old singer's recent tweets. People reports on an SNL promo that dropped this week featuring her former fiance, as well as actor Jonah Hill and singer Maggie Rogers, in which Davidson introduces himself to Rogers, then immediately asks, "You wanna get married?" After Rogers rejects his "proposal," Davidson deadpans for the camera: "0 for 3" (ostensibly referencing his failed relationships).

Shortly thereafter came the already-deleted and somewhat confusing Grande tweets, which many are taking to be jabs at Davidson. "For somebody who claims to hate relevancy u sure love clinging to it huh," was her first one, followed by, "thank u, next." USA Today notes Davidson had previously poked fun of his whirlwind-romance-gone-south during a comedy show last month, in which he quipped: "Well, as you could tell, I don't want to be here. There's a lot going on." Grande didn't seem to get (publicly) peeved at that joke. (Grande has been having a tough time after ex Mac Miller died.)
