Comedian Pete Davidson has made the decision to enter rehab for mental health reasons, according to sources familiar with the situation who spoke with TMZ.
It’s been disclosed that Davidson continues to battle borderline personality disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder.
A close friend of Davidson’s shared that his girlfriend, Chase Sui Wonders, and other friends are providing him with full support during this time. They also said that the development is not rare for Davidson, who regularly seeks professional help to address his issues and better himself.
Davidson has been known for his candidness regarding his mental health journey, often discussing it openly during his segments on the Weekend Update portion of “Saturday Night Live.”
In a 2021 interview with Glenn Close as part of the “Actors on Actors” Variety series, he expressed the relief he felt when he received his BPD diagnosis.
“I got diagnosed with a BPD a few years ago and I was always just so confused all the time, and just like thought something was wrong and didn’t know how to deal with it,” Davidson said during the interview. “And then when somebody finally tells you that, the weight of the world just feels lifted off your shoulders.”
Davidson has been in the news recently, after facing criticism from PETA for acquiring a dog from a pet store instead of adopting from a shelter. The actor responded with a profanity-ridden voicemail in which he lashed out at Daphna Nachminovitch, PETA’s senior VP of cruelty investigations.
He’s also facing legal charges related to reckless driving after a crash into a Beverly Hills, California, home back in March.
