The Saturday Night Live comic asked audience members if there was "anybody looking for a roommate?" at a benefit gig for the Democratic Party in Los Angeles.

The 24-year-old was doing stand-up alongside Judd Apatow, the American superproducer known for comedy movies such as Knocked Up and Superbad. Davidson's acknowledgement of the breakup was the first time he has spoken publicly about the whirlwind romance, which started in May.

After only five weeks of dating, Davidson stunned Hollywood when he proposed to the 25-year-old megastar. He subsequently moved into her New York apartment where they spent most of the summer together, even raising a pet pig together called Piggie Smallz. 

However, US publications have since revealed that "it was not the right time for their relationship to take off" a decision which may have been made in the wake of the sad passing of the hitmaker's ex-boyfriend, Mac Miller. 

After Apatow finished his set, Davidson began his performance by jokingly asking, "who wants to follow that? before adding, "Am I not going through enough that I have to follow that?!"

The SNL star also alluded to him moving out of Grande's apartment, adding, "Well, as you can tell, I don't want to be here. There's a lot going on. Anybody have any open rooms? Anybody looking for a roommate?"

His rash decision to get a tattoo of his ex's initials inked on his knuckles was also poked fun at.

"I've been covering a bunch of tattoos, that's fun. I'm 0-for-2 in the tattoo department," he said in his typical, self-deprecating tone.

"Yeah, I'm afraid to get my mom tattooed on me because she'd leave".
