Sources associated with Pete Davidson are blaming Kanye West for triggering his PTSD.
The comedian had a whirlwind romance with Kim Kardashian, West’s now ex-wife. The dalliance took place while Kardashian was still married to Ye, sparking a very public outburst.
West created a catchy nickname for Davidson, Skeet. He had to carry the weight of being publicly ridiculed, while an animated version of Davidson was beheaded in one of Ye’s videos.
Perhaps the time the funny man previously spent with Yeezy’s fam helped to soothe his troubled mind. Well, these purported sources didn’t have much to say about that, but we are focused on the struggling thespian.
Keep in mind, the self-proclaimed “King of Staten Island” has been open about his mental health issues. During an interview with actress Glen Close, Davidson detailed his ongoing struggles with Borderline Personality Disorder.
His vulnerability has been on full display. More recently, he drove over a fire hydrant and smashed through a random house. But Pete Davidson has regularly sought therapy for an array of mental health issues.
The actor is currently being treated at a Pennsylvania facility, the same place that helped his homeboy, John Mulaney, who wrestled with alcohol and drug issues.
Page Six says someone close to Davidson said he’s “taking a well deserved break so he can focus on himself and learn to better deal with his PTSD issues.”
But the question remains, did Kanye West trigger Davidson’s PTSD?
