Recently, a source close to Pete Davidson told People that he has been getting help for the online harassment he has received from Kanye West. The Saturday Night Live alum “has been in trauma therapy in large part,” since the beginning of April of this year following numerous threatening posts from Kanye West while he was dating the rapper’s ex-wife, Kim Kardashian.

The source said:

“The attention and negativity coming from Kanye and his antics is a trigger for Pete and he’s had to seek out help.” 

The source continued:

He [Davidson] 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 source added:

“Moving forward he just wants to focus on his career.”

As previously reported, SKIMS founder Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson made headlines following their recent split after nine months of dating.

A source admitted:

“Part of the reason they split was because of their busy schedules.”

The source added:

“They both travel all the time and it was hard.”

The 45-year-old reacted to his ex-wife’s breakup on Instagram Monday morning (Aug. 8). In a since-deleted post, with a photo of an altered New York Times newspaper headline, the post read:

“Skete Davidson Dead at Age 28.”

Underneath the headline said:

“Kid Cudi meant to play funeral but fearful of bottle throwers.”

Which relates to an incident that took place at the Rolling Loud Miami festival last month where fans threw water bottles at him. 

Kim Kardashian and Davidson’s teams reached out to West about the post. A source close to the two said:

“His team and Kim’s have reached out repeatedly to Instagram asking to make the platform a safer space.” 

Kardashian’s sources says that Davidson’s involvement with trauma therapy wasn’t the reason they broke up. The source said:

“Kim does not tolerate this type of behavior from Kanye.”

The source added:

“She’s upset about the breakup. But the schedule made it so hard, and the fact that they were living in two different cities.”
