Pete Davidson undergoes ‘trauma therapy’ due to Kanye West’s online harassment

Pete Davidson saw a therapist for ‘trauma therapy’ after months of online harassment from Kanye West over his relationship with Kim Kardashian.

The 28-year-old comedian and actor reportedly decided to ‘seek help’ after Kanye, 45, posted numerous threatening messages about him on social media, including claiming he had ‘died’ in a fake diary page after their recent separation. .

The former Saturday Night Live star reportedly found the rapper’s “attention and negativity” to be a “trigger” and has been in trauma therapy since April.

The news comes after an exclusive Dailymail.com story in which a source said Kim, 41, found Kanye’s Instagram post on Monday – an image from a fake New York Times newspaper with the headline “Skete Davidson dead at 28” – “appalling”.

Kim is said to have “strongly defended Pete” and “will not tolerate this type of behavior” from her ex-husband, the source told Dailymail.com of the post, which Kanye later deleted.

Despite the situation, Pete reportedly has “no regrets” about his nine-month relationship with Kim.

“To move forward, he just wants to focus on his career.”

Kanye’s Monday post also included a line that read, “Kid Cudi wanted to play funeral but was scared of bottle throwers.”

This was in reference to an incident in which goers at the Rolling Loud Miami festival in July threw water bottles at Kid Cudi, 38, whose friendship with Pete is the source of a grudge between him and Kanye.

Both reps for Kim and Pete have reached out to Instagram to report the post, a source told People, noting that “both his team and Kim’s team have repeatedly reached out to Instagram asking to make the platform a safer space. “.

Pete has “been absent from social media” following frequent attacks by Kanye, an insider told the outlet.

In March, Kanye released a clay video for his track Eazy, in which he depicted himself committing violent acts against a character resembling Pete.

Kanye also took to social media in March and said he was “really worried” that Davidson was getting Kim “addicted to drugs”, adding, “He’s in rehab every two months.”

Kim and Pete parted ways last week after struggling to stick to their schedules and working remotely while he is currently filming in Australia.

The couple had been dating for nine months after their romance began in October 2021 on the back of Kim hosting Saturday Night Live.

A source said ‘part of the reason they broke up was because of their busy schedules’ as ‘they both travel all the time and it was difficult’.

Trauma therapy didn’t lead to the breakup, a Kardashian source told People, because “she’s upset about the breakup.”

A source close to the star told DailyMail.com on Monday that Kanye’s ‘Skete is dead’ post: “Kim won’t put up with this.” She demands that Kanye delete the post, but he won’t.

“She vigorously defended Pete. She will never get back together with Kanye because of the way he treated the people she loves and respects.

“She went to incredible lengths to have a good co-parenting situation for the kids. She will not tolerate this type of behavior on his part.

Kim and Kanye have four children together, North, nine, Saint, six, Chicago, four, and Psalm, three, and have co-parented since she filed for divorce in January 2021.

The source added: ‘Kim and Kanye’s divorce is still moving forward. She thinks people shouldn’t agree with this post — and Instagram shouldn’t allow this type of harassment.

“Kim was very sad about the breakup with Pete – it’s not where she thought it would be and it’s been hard on her.

“Distance and schedules weighed in their decision, but they love and respect each other. She will always take care of him and support him.
