Kanye West has been harassing Pete Davidson online, and the comedian is looking for support, a person close to him tells other sources.
The Saturday Night Live star, 28, “has been in trauma treatment in large part” since April of this year as a result of the multiple threatening social media statements that West, 45, made when Davidson was dating the rapper’s ex-wife, Kim Kardashian.
“Pete has had to seek out therapy,” the individual claims, “because the attention and hatred coming from Kanye and his antics is a trigger for Pete.”
According to the insider, Pete Davidson, who just ended his relationship with Kardashian, 41, “has no regrets for dating Kim and wants it to be made very clear that she’s been nothing but supportive of him throughout their relationship.”
The insider continues, “Going ahead, he just wants to focus on his career.” Ever since the split of the iconic duo’s 9 months together last week Pete seemed more determined than ever to focus on his acting career.
Following news of their separation, West responded on Instagram early on Monday with a since-deleted post that featured an image of a modified New York Times newspaper with the title, “Skete Davidson Dead at Age 28.”
Davidson’s participation in trauma counseling, according to an individual close to Kardashian, had absolutely nothing to do with their separation. The insider said that Kim “does not accept this sort of behavior from Kanye.”
“She is hurt by the split. But given their busy schedules and the fact that they resided in two separate places, it was extremely challenging, the insider continues.
On an ending note, the couple felt like distance and also work will do no good for their relationship thus ending things was the easiest way to go. Kim wishes Pete well and hopefully, things will get better in his life as well.
