Pete Davidson was spotted for the first time since his breakup with Ariana Grande was reported, with the comedian seen arriving at his mom's house on Wednesday.

Photos shared by TMZ show the Saturday Night Live star wearing a sweatshirt with the hood pulled over his head and a phone in his hand.

A source told E! News that Davidson is "staying with family in New York right now," though the current status of the $16 million Manhattan apartment he shared with Grande is unclear.

As for Davidson's personal state after the split, the source said the comedian is doing okay.

"Pete's doing fine," the insider said. "He has a strong support system of family and friends around him that are keeping him laughing."

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

After a string of missed appearances, Grande made her return to the public eye this week when she taped NBC's upcoming A Very Wicked Halloween special.

The 25-year-old star donned green lipstick and eyeshadow for the event as well as a green dress and matching necklace. She posted several photos on Instagram from the day, including one with one of the musical's original stars, Idina Menzel.

"if y’all told me ab any of this fifteen years ago ........................... bye," Grande wrote.
