Pete Davidson is speaking out after his ex Cazzie David wrote about their breakup in her recent book of essays.

"I'm really happy for her. It did well, and, you know, we're cool. I wish her nothing but the best," the comedian, 26, said in an interview with Insider earlier this week. "I think she wrote a really funny book and I hope it stays on the chart."

In her book published last month, titled No One Asked For This, David opens up about her two-and-a-half-year romance with Davidson and how she felt when the Saturday Night Live star started dating Ariana Grande.

David writes in her book that she broke up with the comedian in 2018 after struggling to convince him that she really loved him. Though she called him days after initiating the split to say that she had made a mistake, David says that Davidson told her that he was "the happiest he had ever been" and dumped her in a text message two days later.

In her book, David recalls finding out about her ex's relationship with Grande, 27, a day after the text and says she "shook uncontrollably" in her father Larry David's arms during a flight to her sister's graduation.

"CAZZIE, COME ON!" David remembers the Curb Your Enthusiasm star telling her. "YOUR ANCESTORS SURVIVED THE HOLOCAUST!"

"It was a really pivotal moment in my life," David told the Los Angeles Times last month. "And writing about it has caused me a ton of anxiety, especially because I talk so much about hating the attention it brought me. Why would I bring more attention to myself by writing about it? But there's nothing that's gonna be worse than what I already experienced with that."

David also confirmed that she and Davidson have since rebuilt their friendship, and that she showed him the essay before it was published. He's also thanked in the acknowledgments of her book.

Davidson and Grande started dating in May 2018 and the King of Staten Island star proposed to the singer a few weeks later. By October of that same year, the couple called it quits and ended their engagement.

"It was way too much too soon," a source told PEOPLE at the time. "It's not shocking to anyone."
