via People:

On Saturday, shortly after the Saturday Night Live star, 25, shared a distressing note about his wellbeing, the actress, 47, posted a supportive message, encouraging the comedian to “hang in there.”

Pete Davidson … hang in there. There is a lot of help out here,” Pinkett Smith tweeted. “Surrender to some love some where around you … today! Right now! And then … let in the help that will become available.”

“I’m praying for you Pete. I’ve been there. It gets better,” she added.

Although reps for Davidson and SNL did not immediately return PEOPLE’s request for comment, actor and Davidson pal Jon Cryer went on to tweet that he heard the comedian was at the SNL studio in New York City and “accounted for.”

A public information officer with the New York Police Department also told PEOPLE they sent officers to do a welfare check on Davidson. TMZwas the first to report the news.

The New York Times reported that police said a rep for NBC told the NYPD that Davidson was at work and doing fine.

Sharing a screenshot of a note, the Saturday Night Live star, 25, wrote on Instagram Saturday, “I really don’t want to be on this earth anymore. I’m doing my best to stay here for you but i actually don’t know how much longer i can last.”

“All i’ve ever tried to do was help people. Just remember i told you so,” he continued, adding a single red heart emoji.

Davidson, who has borderline personality disorder and has previously spoken about the negative effects bullying has on his illness, later deleted his Instagram account.

In a new clip from the upcoming episode of Facebook Watch’s Red Table Talk, the actress opens up about her own history of depression.

“I was severely depressed. Severely,” the actress tells her mother, Adrienne Banfield-Norris, and daughter Willow. “And that was something I battled for years. Waking up in the morning was like the worst part of the day.”

“By the time the evening came, I was at least like, ‘Okay, I’m good.’ But then you go back to sleep again and you gotta…you gotta restart,” she added.
