Pete Davidson has been in “trauma therapy” largely due to Kanye West’s attacks on social media, several sources confirmed to Page Six.
Beginning in April, “The King of Staten Island” star, 28, has been seeking help following his feud with the rapper for dating his ex-wife, Kim Kardashian.
“The attention and negativity coming from Kanye and his antics is a trigger for [Pete], and he’s had to seek out help,” an insider told People, who first reported the story, Monday.
The source stressed that, despite calling it quits last week, 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.”
Reps for Davidson and West did not reply for comment.
On Friday, an insider confirmed to Page Six that Davidson and Kardashian, 41, had called quits after nine months of dating.
“Kim and Pete have decided to just be friends,” the source shared. “They have a lot of love and respect for each other, but found that the long distance and their demanding schedules made it really difficult to maintain a relationship.”
Another source also told us that their age difference contributed to the decision.
