PETE DAVIDSON has checked into rehab, according to multiple outlets.
Per an initial report from Page Six, the Saturday Night Live alum is receiving in-patient treatment after struggling with issues relating to his borderline personality disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) diagnoses. A source told the publication that Davidson, “regularly goes to rehab for ‘tune ups’ and to take a mental break, so that’s what’s happening,” with another adding, “Anyone who knows Pete knows that he will always step up and get help when he knows he needs it.”
People confirmed the initial reporting, with another source telling the publication, “His friends and family have been supportive during this time.” This includes Davidson’s girlfriend, Chase Sui Wonders, who he met on the set of their film Bodies Bodies Bodies in 2021. The actress and her family are said to “have been very supportive,” and are standing by the comedian during this difficult period.
As for how the star is holding up, a source told Page Six that Davidson is “good.” They added, “Pete is a big believer in mental health and therapy. When there is down time in his schedule, he works on himself.”
What illness does Pete Davidson have?
Davidson has been open about his mental health struggles in the past. During a 2018 Variety interview, the comedian said he’d “been in and out of mental health facilities” since he was nine years old. After years spent battling anxiety and depression, and two stints in rehab for marijuana, he was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder. At the time of the interview, he noted medication had helped stabilise him, and he was feeling okay.
“The last few years have been real rough with me,” he said at the time. “I took all these mental health classes and really spent a lot of time getting me good.”
In August 2022, the 29-year-old reportedly underwent trauma therapy, after an onslaught of online harassment from rapper — and ex-husband of his then-girlfriend, Kim Kardashian — Kanye West.
What treatment is Pete Davidson receiving?
Currently, Davidson is reportedly getting help at a facility in Pennsylvania, the same centre where fellow comic, John Mulaney, was previously treated.
